MILWAUKEE - For so many families, Opening Day is a long-standing tradition.
You see them all over the ballpark: Dads toting sons, dads carrying their little girls, children on a mom's lap, and one little guy took a day off daycare to attend his first Opening Day with his mom.
But for 15-month-old Henry, it’s a family affair.
“His favorite thing to play with is baseball,” said Jp Zvesper, a second generation fan.
Henry is not even two-years-old and this is his second opening day.
"We got him out here last year and we thought he was only going to last a few innings and he made it eight," Zvesper said.
The Zvespers are a dedicated Brewers family.
"We've been season ticket holders from the beginning, 1970," JP Zvester said.
Joe Zvesper took his son JP to games, and they experienced some cold opening days.
“It was a little different because County Stadium is not climate controlled,” JP Zvester said.
Now the grandson Henry comes along as well.
"It's a great family tradition," JP added. "This is what it's all about."
