One of my plans for 2011 is, now that I have a little more freedom of movement, to hit up a new ballpark each month. April will probably be tough with tax deadlines that month but beginning with May, I’d like to do some short road trips. I’m planning on visiting both the White Caps and the Loons but I’d like to maybe venture out as far as Erie and Buffalo (maybe hitting Cleveland on the way back). Most trips will be for just one night (hit a night game in one town, check out and then hit an afternoon game in another) and they’ll be somewhat planned on the fly (my schedule with my son is month to month) but that’s the goal.
So I’m looking for suggestions. West Michigan is a must and easy. I’m going to visit Dow Field and the Loons in July (this one is already set). Louisville is also in the plans. I’m thinking of doing a Fort Wayne/Indianapolis trip and a Erie/Buffalo or Cleveland Indians trip but if you have any recommendations, let me know. And if you live in one of those areas, drop me a line and we can catch a game.
