Through Big League Chew’s partnership with the Baseball Hall of Fame, we hope to provide fans of all ages with memories that will last a lifetime. That’s why we launched the “Best Baseball Day Ever” contest, where kids could tell us about the best baseball day ever for a chance to win a Big League trip to Hall of Fame Induction Weekend.
After Rob Nelson carefully reviewed the 192 entries, he awarded Clayton as the “Best Baseball Day Ever” contest winner. Clayton comes from a military family that is getting ready to move to Europe in August. One of his dreams was to visit the Hall of Fame with his dad, but he didn’t think it was going to happen because of the move. Clayton had already been saving his money all summer for the visit when he entered the contest.
My “Best Baseball Day Ever” was my first walk-off winning game hit. It was an energizing moment. It was the bottom of the 6th. 2 outs runner on 1st. The count was 2-1. Pitcher threw I swung. WHAM!!!! The baseball went sailing over the center fielders head. I reached first and everyone was cheering. “Did I just win the game for the team” I said, “WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE!!!” Coach said. “HOLY COW!!” I said. My dad ran over and congratulated me and started tearing up in the car I was so happy! That was my “Best Baseball Day Ever!”
Rob called Clayton to let him know he’s headed to Cooperstown for Induction Weekend with his family before they move to Europe in August. Now this might be his best baseball day ever! Watch his priceless reaction here:
