"As a baseball player or any athlete, you don't get to spend as much time as you would like with your kids," said Bourn, who is expecting a daughter in early July. "It's not easy being a father. You have to make a lot of sacrifices. [I] just want to make sure everybody knows to enjoy their day. It's a day that you should enjoy, I think."
The Indians celebrated Father's Day by offering fans the chance to play catch in the outfield after Sunday's afternoon game. For $15, individuals can purchase tickets that allow for 15 minutes of tossing the ball around at Progressive Field. Those interested in the program must also attend the 1:05 p.m. game against Washington.
"To a son, your father is your hero," Bourn said. "He's Superman to you. You think he can do anything. You think he can jump through the roof -- everything. That's how he views you."
