Redditor GeekYogurt uploaded this picture/story yesterday, and if it doesn’t tug at your heartstrings then you might be completely dead inside. Seems GeekYogurt’s father is suffering from cancer and this past Wednesday they received some dreadful news from the oncologist regarding further chemotherapy treatment. Despondent, the pair drove home in silence, absorbing the thought that this was their last season of watching baseball together.
I’ll let GeekYogurt take it from here (you might want to have some Kleenex handy)…
Say what you will about the game—it’s too slow, the players are overpaid babies, steroids have ruined the game—but this is the one area where baseball triumphs over all other sports in that it has the innate ability to bring family together.
