Quick, fill in the missing word: “As American as Mom, apple pie, and…”
It’s the height of summer, and, as of writing this post, the Red Sox are on top of the American League East with the Yankees trailing behind by just two games (both teams very popular up here in Vermont, so that can lead to some heated conversations among neighbors).
Over here at the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, we’ve got a furry little guy who’s ready for his at bat: Baseball Bear! He’s got his uniform, cap, and wooden Vermont Teddy Bear bat, and you can personalize the front AND back of his jersey. Got a baseball lover? Baseball Bear will make a big…hit!
Speaking of big hits, my wife and I were lucky enough to be in attendance recently in historic Centennial Field when the Vermont Lake Monsters handed the Staten Island Yankees an ignominious defeat, 8-2. It would have been a wonderful experience even without the win, as it was a perfect summer day, we were with dear friends (six-year-old Lilly’s first-ever baseball game!), and, with so many mini-contests and the mighty mascot Champ putting on a great show, the Lake Monsters made sure that there was never a dull moment in between innings. But being able to witness our home team trounce Staten Island made the experience unforgettable.
Here’s a picture I snapped from the bleachers at the bottom of the 6th inning, Lake Monsters’ Aaron Shipman hitting a single that, unfortunately, also resulted in Diomedes Lopez getting out at second base.
However, what I’d draw your attention to…is this:
That’s right. Vermont Teddy Bear is in the house over at Centennial Field! You might even say that we cover all the bases.
