Take me out to the ball game…..This past week the start of the baseball season was celebrated in stadiums across the nation. After a long winter, the start of the season marks the beginning of spring and warmer days ahead as we enjoy our national pastime.
Our local favorites, the San Francisco Giants, started their season with a win against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Closer to home, our son Noah started his third season playing Pinto Baseball in Morgan Hill, and as luck would have it, he’s on the Giants- sporting the black and orange colors of the team. I couldn’t be happier with the selection however Noah would have preferred to be on the Cubs team. With respect to his roots, he will never forget being born outside of Chicago and this has made him a die hard Cubs fan.
For the third year in a row, Tech Girl Financial proudly sponsored Noah’s team. It’s great to see Tech Girl Financial printed on the baseball hats and team banner, and selfishly, it frees up my time from having to volunteer at the snack shack. However, the sponsorship is much more than that. I want my son to understand and appreciate that I am supportive of him and his efforts as well as those of his team. I show this by being at his side during the games and practices donning my own Giants gear of black and orange and cheering the whole team. I know that the financial contribution to help the league may be a small token, however I enjoy illustrating to my son that Mom’s business supports his commitment to the team.
At this level, we can expect that there will be some bumps along the way, and Noah will have his ups and downs with the sport. It’s all part of the process. Regardless of the outcome of the game or the season, I will be his biggest fan and cheer on the orange and black.
