Seattle, Friday September 28th, 2007

We managed to squeeze in one more baseball trip at the tail end of the 2007 season, visiting the Pacific Northwest for the first time. The trip was planned around the final series of the season for the Seattle Mariners, but we were just as interested in seeing Seattle, a place I long wished toContinue reading “Seattle, Friday September 28th, 2007”

Detroit, Michigan September 13th, 2009

A warm and dry late summer day greeted us for the last game of the series at Comerica Park. Having seen much of what we wished to see in downtown Detroit the day before, we ate a late breakfast before heading directly to the park. However, it seemed as though the landmarks in Detroit wereContinue reading “Detroit, Michigan September 13th, 2009”

Detroit, Michigan September 12th 2009

1. Downtown Detroit Following breakfast near the hotel, we decided to explore downtown Detroit. The few glimpses I had yesterday before the game piqued my curiosity, as the glimpses challenged my preconception of the city. Visions of Detroit from the news and the movie 8 Mile danced in my head. In our previous visit toContinue reading “Detroit, Michigan September 12th 2009”

Colorado, Sunday June 13th 2010

Once again, the morning dawned dark and cool across Eastern Colorado. Considering Denver enjoys 24 sunny days a month (especially during the warm season), getting three gray and wet days in a row is an unusual string of bad luck. Rather than experiencing highs temperatures in the toasty upper 70s and lower 80s (which isContinue reading “Colorado, Sunday June 13th 2010”

Colorado, Friday June 11th 2010

Our only MLB trip of 2010 took us to Denver, Colorado for the weekend of June 11-13th 2010, for our first visit to Coors Field, home of the Rockies. The flight from Newark, NJ to Denver CO took about three hours and 45 minutes, and after picking up our rental car, we arrived at ourContinue reading “Colorado, Friday June 11th 2010”

Minneapolis, Minnesota – Thursday September 22nd, 2011

Following a late night at Target Field the night before, we had breakfast at the Denny‚Äôs adjacent to our hotel, then relaxed until it was time to leave for the ballpark. Game time was 1210 pm, leaving little time to do much before arriving at the park as the gates opened. We got a goodContinue reading “Minneapolis, Minnesota – Thursday September 22nd, 2011”

Minneapolis, Minnesota – Wednesday, September 21st 2011

Our second MLB trip of the 2011 season took us to Minneapolis to see the Twins at Target Field. Planning the trip for late September, we knew there was a chance that the night game we would attend could be cold, with temperatures in the 30s. Circumstances dictated the timing of our visit, and weContinue reading “Minneapolis, Minnesota – Wednesday, September 21st 2011”

Florida Baseball Trip 2014 – St Petersburg

1. Miami to St Petersburg, Florida Thursday May 8th 2014 The next and final stop of our 2014 MLB tour was St Petersburg, Florida, home of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Florida Baseball Trip 2014 – Miami

Our only Major League Baseball trip of 2014 was focused on the teams in Florida (Miami and St Petersburg). We chose early May for the trip, since it is just before the heat and humidity typically descend on the Peninsula. Because we were starting the trip in New Jersey (which is just out of rangeContinue reading “Florida Baseball Trip 2014 – Miami”
