We took our kids to Disneyland in April 2017. Their first trip. The excitement was palpable for the month leading up to the trip.
This trip was also going to feature a Toronto Blue Jays road game for me and our then-six-year-old son. He loved baseball. It was his passion then and remains his passion to this day.
This would be his second-ever MLB game. As excited as he was for Disneyland (very!), he might have been just as excited to go to a Toronto Blue Jays game.
Before the pandemic struck, I was planning a yet-to-be-taken family vacation to Boston.
I planned to fly us to southwestern Ontario to visit family before driving to Boston. On the return trip, we would stop at Cooperstown in upstate New York, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame (American).
This trip would have been an incredible once-in-a-lifetime chance for my son and I to visit the hallowed halls that enshrine the best players, managers, umpires, and pioneers of the sport we both love.
