My father started the baseball season with two tickets to 15 Pirate games. The only person who would begrudgingly go with him was my mother. They went to 11 games, one of which got rained out. He told me today that he gave the tickets to the four remaining games to a local charity for children. Pirate season is over for my father. He recently changed his cable TV plan so that he gets the MLB Network. So, like me, when he wants to watch actual major league baseball played by actual major league players, he turns on MLB and watches their games.
