This past February my first grandchild was born. Like my father before me, my son and I are lifelong Cubs fans. And when I heard that for a fee the Cubs will put the newborn’s birth information up on the marquee and send me a picture of it, along with a certificate, and some newborn clothing, I was all over it. The baseball was present when my grandson was born, and my son asked the nurse to put the baby’s footprints on it when they did his birth certificate. I made the oak moulding out of lumber that I had milled last year from a tree from the property where I grew up, where my dad taught me to play baseball.
