ELYRIA, Ohio (WJW) -- Baseball is a tradition one Elyria family says runs three generations deep. So, when Matt Loescher heard about a contest for the World Series, he knew his son had to be a part of it. What he didn't know, was just days later this competition would take his family to the World Series.

"I've been smiling for five straight days," said Matt Loescher.

His son Parker, 10 years old, beat out all Cleveland-area kids in Chevy's Youth Baseball Program contest.

"This is just unbelievable, and I know it's going to be so much fun," said Parker.

The big prize? A gig as kid reporter for the World Series.

"On the phone, I was shaking, trying not to cry, and then I thought, 'I have to call his dad and tell him what's going on,' " said Jessica Loescher, Parker's mom.

"He's going to get to talk to the Indians, be around them at a World Series game, it just blows my mind," says Matt.

Parker tells Fox 8 he made the video last week using equipment in his school's media room at Open Door Christian Schools, where his dad is a teacher and baseball coach.

Aside from getting to meet his idols on the Indians, Parker scored free tickets to Game One of the series, but says this moment is about more than just him.

"My grandpa was born the last time the Indians won the World Series in 1948, so I gave them a ticket because I knew he would enjoy it," said Parker.

Three generations of Loeschers will cheer on the Indians Tuesday. As the Indians look to cap Cleveland's historic sports year.

"It's so neat to realize all the time he put into teaching me baseball, that I can turn it into my own kids teaching baseball now," said Matt. "We have three generations of the World Series celebrating how awesome Cleveland is ... I don't know how to put into words."
