The kids school has a back to school picnic every year a the local baseball game. My 6 yo was obsessed with getting his picture taken with Scrappy. It took some time to finally track Scrappy down but we did get a picture. I don't think my 6 yo would have been fit to live with if we didn't!;) The boys all had their gloves just in case they had the chance to catch a ball.....but, thankfully none came close!
