For some Dads, it doesn’t get any better than this.  They came to the ball park to play a game of catch. 

“Oh yea, all the time.  I played ever since I was little kid since I was like his size,” says Brian Lowe. 

It’s a pastime that takes these fathers back to their own childhood.  Lowe came with his son, his brother and his son.  They joined about 400 people on the field at Principal Park for what has become a Father’s Day Tradition.

“I just knew how much I enjoyed playing baseball when I was a kid and I wanted to share that with him and teach him to play catch,” says Chad Lowe.

There’s something special happens when the gloves go on.

“It's a father-son relationship that you can't have any other way ,” says Dennis Harringa.

Harringa is filling in for his son who is out of the country.  He and his grandson brought their mitts and are ready to play. 

“It's just one of those things you always do.  I used to do it with my dad now I do it with him,” says Brian Lowe. 

For these fathers, there’s no place they would rather be.

“It's great to spend time with the boys,” says Chad Lowe.
