As a lifelong Cleveland fan and fresh off witnessing his first championship in 50 years, Jeff fulfilled his own personal dream - throwing out the First Pitch for his hometown team!
Q Give us a play-by-play of your experience? Did you travel from far? What was your favorite part of your experience?
A I live about 30 minutes outside of Cleveland. We attended batting practice on the field where my kids were able to get autographs and get pictures with several players.
We had great seats for the game behind home plate. I was able to throw out the first pitch, and "steal" 2nd base between the 6th and 7th innings with the grounds crew. Everything added up to an incredible experience, but I will most remember the smiles on my kids faces as they were able to experience these things along with me!
Q Who did you bring with you on your experience?
A My wife Barb, and kids, Jenna and Brandon.
