I’d dreamed about it for years. The “Summer of Doug”. While it wasn’t a full summer, it was an Aug that ended with a week of ballgames, Broadway, and 10 lbs.
What are my baseball trips really about? You might be surprised. Another awesome trip to Fenway Park, and a game of catch at Dodger Stadium!
What can happen over 3 years? A surprising amount of travel, a Super Bowl parade, and a World Series. And that was just the start.
Was my trip to Florida to see the Marlins and Rays an ‘obligatory’ trip? Yes, but that’s certainly not how I ‘sold’ it to my wife!
It’s a battle of the ballparks! In one corner, Nationals Park. A perfectly average ballpark in every way. In the other corner, Camden Yards, a top 5 ballpark no-doubter!
What happens when Sears decides to lay off a bunch of people? I get offered a promotion and catch a few ballgames at Miller Park and US Cellular Field.
