Baseball through a new lens

As a child, my sister and I spent many Sunday afternoons in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field watching our beloved Cubs lose.

But some baseball teams have figured out that families want more than to see a game:  dads and moms want a springboard for family time.  More than ever this summer, teams are offering family themed days, player autographing and kid game centers, right in the stadium.

With all these attractions, I might never have stayed in my seat long enough to see Ernie Banks, Ron Santos or Billy Williams play ball.

One area that still needs work:  making attending a professional game affordable for an entire family.
