I originally drafted this post in March during the weeks of spring training with a hope to say next year we are going, it's been 4 years too long to miss out on the fun! While I missed the Spring Training window, what better timing than to publish the week of our first White Sox game of the season with my dad.
This is a very special time for us as these pictures and videos also bring back memories of a very monumental moment for my dad. Leaving a Sox game last season back in May, he fell and tore both of his quads, with an emergency surgery and intense physical therapy sessions following, he made it a goal for himself to take batting practice at the August workout on the field.
Not only did he take batting practice, he had an amazing run, we were all so proud of him! While I wish I had more videos to capture our time, I am thankful for the ones we do have. My favorite moment by far is the happiness this brought him and especially love how I captured my sister, who is in orthopedics greet him after his bat and see how proud she is of her dad that he accomplished his goal! 'Be tough' is a phrase he said to all of us growing up, and we got to see him 'be tough' for all us and and our kiddos as well!
