Bad dad lets kid roll down hill while he's chasing a baseball

Your parenting tip of the day courtesy of Call to the Pen: Never under any circumstances leave a child unattended in a wheeled vehicle on an inclined surface while you go chasing after a baseball.

Cause this will happen.


Thankfully the child was totally unharmed. But it could have ended differently. The wagon could have overturned, dumping the kid into the soft grass. He could have gotten a really nasty grass stain.

Dads. Moms. Grandparents. Uncles and aunts. Big brothers and sisters. Anyone who might have occasion to bring a kid to a spring training game. Keep something in mind.

It’s just a baseball.

Actually, this is good advice for everyone at all times. I know catching a ball at a game is cool but it’s not worth risking life and limb.

It’s not worth possibly injuring another human being. It’s certainly not worth endangering the safety of your own kid.

Even if you don’t hurt someone chasing after your essentially worthless baseball, there’s a good chance you will end up on the internet looking like an idiot.

Okay, I advised you. Now back to enjoying the spring training baseball action.
