I love baseball. Other than gymnastics, it’s definitely my favorite sport. It signifies springtime and it has such a rich history in our country. My favorite team is of course the Atlanta Braves. I also love the Boston Red Sox after visiting Fenway Park last summer and getting to watch a game there. I would do the typical giveaways like the first 100 kids 10 and under get a free bobblehead or t shirt or have a certain section of the park get something free if one of the players hits a homerun. Also, something that always worked when I was a kid was giving specially priced tickets to games to kids elementary all the way through high school that make good grades. That was how I always got to go to games as a kid. It’s important to do special promotions even when the team is winning because going to a game can be expensive with parking and food so it might not be enough that the team is good. I know that my dad won’t necessarily go to games for teams he loves if they aren’t playing well. However, being such a big baseball fan myself, I think that nothing replaces the feeling of being in a ballpark even if the team isn’t good.
