You know those great feel good stories you see or hear about? Well, for two little league teams, this became a reality. Two little league teams in urban Ontario arrived for what they thought would be a routine evening baseball game. Little did they know this would be the most memorable game of their lives – “A Taste of the Big League” experience.
In celebration of Baseball Day in Canada on August 10th, Schneiders employees, in partnership with the Toronto Blue Jays, recently surprised the Scarborough Stingers and North York Blues with a once-in-a-life time “big league” experience – upgrading their baseball diamond, inviting Ace the Blue Jays Mascot, play-by-play announcers, a video production team, and bringing scores of fans, Schneiders volunteers, hot dogs and sausages to make the little league game larger than life.
This is a quote from Cam, a 9 year old player with the Scarborough Stingers who loved the experience:
“Mommy, do you think that is what the Blue Jays players feel like? I mean, everyone cheering for you and wanting you to do well? It makes you feel like a hero, and like you want to try with your whole heart to do well, even though you know you may not win. That was the best sports experience of my life. My whole team felt special.”
Watch this, guaranteed to make you smile!
It is great to see kids made to feel like heroes, we need to do that more often! But we can always put a smile on their face with a Schneiders Country Naturals Jumbo weiner (gluten free) and give them a “taste” of the big league experience!
