A couple of years ago I decided to embrace the part of my life that follows “Fever Pitch” and fully own that I love baseball, I love traveling for baseball, and it doesn’t matter that most of my time outside of teaching involves thinking/watching/playing/analyzing/writing baseball.
Since then, I’ve gone on two baseball themed road trips. In summer 2015, I drove to Savannah, GA and back since it was the last summer that the Sand Gnats would be a Mets team. I was fortunate enough on that trip to also see the Greenville Drive, Durham Bulls, Carolina Mudcats, Norfolk Tide, Richmond Squirrels, and the Trenton Thunder (+the Baltimore Orioles, and there was one rainout: the Bristol Pirates).
Last spring I drove out to Cleveland when the Mets went there and I picked up a few more minor league games with the Wilmington Blue Rocks, Altoona Curve, Binghamton Mets and the Harrisburg Senators (+a rainout in Syracuse).
I’m currently planning a few more trips for this year including an April drive down to Miami and an early July drive to St. Louis.
Who should I see on the way? Why should I see them?
