#BigLeagueDads (Chicago Cubs)

Posted September 22, 2013 by jimhigley


The Cubs may have lost to the Braves – who clinched their first NL East title since 2005 – but  the real winners were all of the Big League Dads in our group today – enjoying a Sunday afternoon in historical Wrigley Field with our kids.

Our team of dads included Joel Gratcyk, Eric Bennion, James Zahn, Victor Aragon, Robert Duffer, Eric Boyette and myself – with kids ranging from 6 months old to 24 years in age.

A diversity in age that proved no matter their age, making memories and grabbing real moments with kids is second to none.


Thanks to MLB and Dove Men + Care who made our real moment happen. It’s all part of their end-of-the season campaign, “Big League Dads” –  and it features a new video each week.

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.
