It’s taken me almost 51 years, but I finally made it. I am sincerely grateful to simply be here in Cooperstown to watch my son Blake play in the Dream Park tournament today August 22nd, 2018. I hope he has fun and will remember this forever. He is only 11 years old and I’m so proud of him (DOB: 12/20/06). Visit Dream Park – Click here
We have #1 spectators and cheering section in the nation 😉 It’s amazing to see the level of maturity and discipline some of these players have as they compete in one of the greatest pastimes.
