The sun is out and the fields are green, which can only mean one thing: baseball season is in full swing! Why not take the opportunity to enjoy America’s favorite pastime? Going to the game is a truly intergenerational outing, a blast for everyone from the youngest to the eldest.
For elderly adults, going out and enjoying recreational activities is not only enjoyable—it’s also important to both physical and emotional health. If the special senior in your life is a baseball fan, going to the game is a great way to share quality time with them.
Stadiums aim to make the experience as enjoyable as possible for their life-long fans. All large sports venues are outfitted to be completely senior-friendly, with accessibility for those in wheelchairs and walkers, and comfortable seating. Many ballparks also offer senior discounts.
Senior fans of baseball will also cherish the opportunity to introduce the joy of the game to the younger folks in their lives. The love of baseball has been passed on from generation to generation for many years, cementing the sport as our national pastime, and now, you and the senior in your life can be part of the tradition.
Is the senior in your life unfamiliar with baseball? It’s never too late to start! People of all ages cherish the memory of their first game. Going to the ballpark offers an opportunity to feel a sense of community, enjoy some classic American junk food (hot dogs or cotton candy, anyone?), and root for the team. Before you know it, you’ll all be singing, “Take me out to the ballgame…”
