Brooks Lee’s parents detail excitement to see son achieve dream of playing Major League Baseball

Brooks Lee’s parents Larry and Liz interview on Brooks reaching the big leagues

The Lee family, mom, dad, and daughter slept in the Los Angeles airport last Wednesday night to catch an early Thursday morning flight to the Twin Cities. Older son Brooks received the call to join the Twins Wednesday afternoon and made his MLB debut Wednesday night.

The Lees live in San Luis Obispo, CA, and received word way too late on Wednesday to make it for Brooks’ first at-bat. But they made it for most of Thursday afternoon’s game, then for all of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday’s games.

Our Darren ‘Doogie’ Wolfson spoke with mom Liz and dad Larry on Thursday. The emotion and excitement of seeing their son achieve his dream was evident.
