#BigLeagueDads (Oakland)

Posted September 21, 2013 by jimhigley


The Oakland Athletic’s magic number is now 2.

There was definitely a packed stadium of “Big League Dads” at the game to celebrate. And I had the pleasure of hanging with two of them – Beau Coffron and Daniel DeGuia.

Plus, on top of a big win, it was Star Wars Night at the game – so Daniel and Beau’s kids got an extra treat. And fireworks!

Making memories. And celebrating life’s real moments. That’s what fatherhood’s all about, right?


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.
