If a close family member has suddenly passed away and you've taken on the responsibility of dealing with his or her post-death arrangements, you may favor going the route of cremation. If so, one of the things that you'll need to do is decide what to do with the cremated remains. If the person was an avid sports fan, it can be a fitting tribute to come up with a sports-related way to deal with the remains. There are a number of different options for you to consider, including the following three.
Scattering Them At A Pro Facility
If the person was a huge fan of a specific professional team, one way to deal with his or her cremated remains is to scatter them at the team's stadium. This doesn't mean that you should bag up the remains, sneak them into the venue, and scatter them around when no one is looking. Instead, you should go through the proper channels by contacting the team and explaining your request. While you might occasionally get turned down — after all, each team has the right to control how people interact with its facility — there are numerous professional sports teams and sporting venues that allow fans to scatter ashes in a controlled manner at an agreed-upon time.
Scattering Them At A Local Facility
Another option for scattering the sports fan's cremated remains is to look for a local facility that was important to him or her. For example, if your loved one was a longtime youth baseball coach, one idea is to scatter the remains in the infield dirt at the baseball field where he or she coached. Similarly, if the person worked at a horse track grooming and training race horses, scattering the remains on the dirt track is an idea you can pursue. Keep in mind that if the venue is on private property, you'll need to seek permission from the property owner.
Keeping Them In A Sports-Themed Urn
Sometimes, you'll want to keep the cremated remains instead of scatter them. If this is the case, think about buying an urn featuring the logo of the person's favorite sports team. Numerous companies make such products, as well as generic sports-themed urns. You can then have the cremated remains placed into the urn and keep it in a prominent spot in your home. One ideal location might be the TV room where you and your late loved one watched sports together.

Hi everyone, my name is Peter Holly. I am interested in teach others about the various urn and casket options on the market today. I would also like to explore the history of the creation and display of urns and caskets. When my father died, I took a long time to select the best urn for display on my mantle. I wanted to hold the ashes in a creation that encapsulated the personality of my father. I eventually selected a small wooden box with a cherry finish and bronze accents. If my father had wanted a burial instead, it probably would have taken even longer to select the best casket. There are just so many interior finishes available in addition to all of the exterior designs. Please come by often for assistance in finding your best urn or casket options.
