The grind of a seven- or eight-month season can make it tough for baseball players to see their families as much as they would like.
Fortunately, the families do at least get to watch the players as they work—either at the ballpark or on television. That may not be the same as actually spending quality time with them, but it's the next-best thing.

The Cubs start the 2016 season with a six-game road trip out West, so watching Dexter play on television will have to do for the time being. Even though it may be past the youngster's bedtime, the Fowlers are willing to make exceptions so Dexter's biggest fan can see him:
Chicago's first homestand, which begins April 11, can't come soon enough for Naya.
