This Father’s Day, forget about getting Dad the predictable and boring tie, wallet, or golf club. Instead, give him the gift of entertainment and treat him with tickets to the following events, each of which he’s sure to love.
What better way to spend time with Dad than at a ball game? With the baseball season now in full swing, there are plenty of clutch series match-ups to be played in the American and National League. For fans in the Miami area, don’t miss out on the annual All-Star festivities, including the Home Run Derby and MLB All-Star Game, which runs July 9-11 at Marlins Ballpark.

While the NFL season doesn’t kick off until September, it’s never too early to start planning which game to attend. Picking up a pair of tickets to see Dad’s favorite team (and promising him a quality tailgate beforehand) will no doubt make you the MVP of Father’s Day gifts.
