We had baseball. We had hot dogs. We had kids. And we had dads. In my book, the perfect ingredients for grabbing some real moments.

You’re thinking that the Detroit Tigers and the Mariners were the stars of the show? Think again. The real future hall of famers were the children of dads Tom Burns and Chris Giroux – the Detroit dads I had the pleasure of hanging out with for the day. We were there compliments of MLB.com and Dove Men+Care who are wrapping up the season with a pretty cool campaign featuring many of the “dad” players throughout the league.

It’s called “Big League Dads” – and it features a new video each week.

Pretty simple stuff. Which is my strategy for being a dad. Keep it simple. And care for what matters.


Check out the #BigLeagueDads Instagram Contest! And enter your own photo of of our your family – and maybe you’ll be heading to an opening day game next season. It’s as simple as that.  And whether you’re a dad, a mom, an aunt, an uncle – or just someone with a kid who loves you – I hope you’ll give that child some real moments to remember in the waning days of this passing season.
