My best moments are from watching. My dad took me to Cincinnati when I was young to watch the Reds. Those are my best moments, going to games with him. I wish he were still around for me to take to a game now. I would appreciate it a lot more.
I too never really played. I played one year of tee ball when I was about 6, then I tried again at 11 or 12, but was 3rd string right fielder, 2nd string bench warmer. The one game I was going to start in center I missed the ball during warmups and ended up with a black eye and ice pack instead of playing time.
My enjoyment comes from watching, and especially now taking my little girls to the ballpark. Sadly, they don't really know what it's like to cheer with the crowd, since my 4 year old has only been to 2 games in Cincy, and 5 or 6 out here, while my 5 month old has never been to a home game for the Reds.
