The ultimate Father’s Day gift guide for sports fans
By Brittany Anas
If Dad still has his high school varsity jacket and trophies tucked away as keepsakes, loves a good morning run or a Saturday afternoon game of pickup basketball, we’ve got just the gift guide for him.
Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 15 this year. Here are some ideas that will knock it out of the park with any athletic, sports-loving pops.
- Tickets to a baseball game. Take him out to the ballpark during Father’s Day weekend. Earn bonus points by stashing the tickets in a new baseball hat with the home team’s logo on it and a bag of peanuts. Shop MLB hats at Sports Authority and earn up to 4 percent Cash Back on your purchases. Your home team not playing on Father’s Day weekend? Head out to the batting cages for some family fun. (Usually there’s Go-Karts nearby, too, and we’re betting dad is up for a race).
- A day at the course. If dad is a golfer, buy him a round at his favorite course (or, better yet, a course he’s been talking about wanting to play). How do you wrap up a tee time? Write it in a card and give him a new pack of his favorite golf balls, a golf polo, golf shorts or — if you’ve golfed with him before and know what he likes — splurge on the new driver he’s been talking about. Find golf gifts at Sports Authority.
- An arcade game of hoops. Admittedly, we’re thinking about the whole family here. But if dad is a basketball fan (and he’s been glued to the NBA playoffs), he’ll have fun with an electronic basketball game that can give an arcade-feel to the basement or garage. Let him hone his shot with the Huffy Single Electronic Basketball game from Sports Authority.
- A day at the beach or the lake. If dad’s favorite environment is the water and he’s adventurous, nudge him to try wakeboarding. It’s a combination of sufing, water skiing and snowboarding. Find wakeboards here.
