My favorite sports event/memory/moment is ... when my mom took me to Game 1 of the 1989 World Series. She did not know a curveball from a fly ball, but she knew her son loved baseball and she cemented that passion in me for life. Now that I’m a parent, I understand the joy my mother felt of seeing her child’s imagination captured by this game.
