Baseball Trip Finalized for 2011: New England Bound

newengland.jpgThere’s nothing like lookin to the future, and trying to come up with a trip that we can fit at least six to seven games into a five day span isn’t easy. Next May we’ll be heading east to the New England area, checking out the Minor League teams there, and even hitting a Red Sox game at historic Fenway Park. Our trip will start off on the Triple A level in Rhode Island, watching the Pawtucket Red Sox defend their home field against the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees. It will be a small taste of the Sox-Yanks rivalry, anyway. Day two of our trip we will head up north to Manchester, NH. There we will watch a Double A matchup between the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Binghampton Mets. The third day of our trip will take us up to the great state of Maine for a pair of games. First we’ll see a night game as the Portland Sea Dogs face the Reading Phillies, and we’ll watch the same two teams go at it the next day at noon. After the day game concludes, we’ll head south for some Major League action. I know I don’t care to see baseball live at this level that often, but Fenway is a must for any baseball fan, and Boston is facing the Detroit Tigers, so it’s a chance to see our home team on the road. We also plan to take the tour of Fenway Park the next morning. Our trip will end later that night in Conecticicut, where we’ll watch the New Britain Rock Cats play New Hampshire, who we’ll be seeing for the second time. There will be plenty of other sites for us to see in this part of the country, and I plan to have a beer or two at Cheers in Boston.

  3. Absolutely agree on the Pete Rose thing that you wrote on my post! I think if the “linked” ones get in, then Pete Rose should have his rightful place in C’Town. Thanks for reading my post. Glad to see someone pays as much attention to the minors as you do. Keep up the good work!

  4. Jane-I’m really looking forward to this trip. The PawSox-Yankees game is already almost sold out! I was lucky to get tickets.
    Jeff-I definately enjoy sharing the pics of my tips. Just my dad and I on this one, though. I have same great games lined up for the kids and I this summer, so they won’t feel left out at all.
    HTTM-thanks for reading. I look forward to more work on your blog.

  5. This sounds like a fun trip! I should do something like that, not only to visit more minor league ballparks but also to visit new states. I only been to NH and MA from that map

  6. Hi,
    The trip sounds awesome! I visited New Hampshire last summer and blogged about it here: http://theballparkguide.mlblogs.com/archives/2011/03/new-hampshire—september-10-2010.html

    I’ve been reading and enjoying your blog for some time, and enjoy reading about your trips. I’m heading your way in May, and plan to hit a Whitecaps game. Not sure which date just yet! Enjoy!
