The Chicago White Sox’s have had parades for select fans to march around the US Cellular infield throughout the years. For the past 2-years, I have been performing my kid’s balloon entertainment at the pre-game activities. Since getting my new digital camera, I have been bringing it with me, and at this particular event, some parents forgot to bring their cameras. Never fear your favorite Magical Balloon-dude Dale has his camera at his ready. So if you’re one of those parents, send me an email, and I will send you a copy.
This is the first season that I’ve been making balloon baseball hats. It’s a quick, simple hat that requires 2-260 balloons and a 5 inch round. Then make a quick loop hat and attach an uninflated 260 onto the end of the loop hat. Inflate a 5″ round and draw on some laces and attach to the uninflated 260 balloons. I inflate a 260 or 250 balloon and use that as the bat.
Here is a picture of a mom and son standing next to a backdrop picture. You can see in the picture the boy is wearing the baseball hat that I made.
I had to take a picture of this young Sox’s fan fingers. Apparently, she is in love with third basemen Joe Crede. Check out those nails!
Here is a picture of Joe and his mom. Joe was playing hooky from work … I wonder if he still has a job after this picture? Disclaimer: This is not Joe Crede, but Joe the Chicago White Sox’s fan.
Most people see the field from the stand perspective, but here are a couple of pictures from the back of the left-field, some 330 feet away. When you’re in the stand, it doesn’t look that far away but from the ground – the boy that’s a long way.
