Baseball Stadium Tour

For years now I’ve wanted to take a summer road trip touring as many baseball stadiums as I possibly can. With a month off between jobs, I’m finally able to. Starting the morning of August 28 in Detroit, I’m headed to 14 baseball stadiums in three weeks and, as a bonus, will be going to 2 football games too. I’m using this here blog to chronicle the trip.

Then there’s the BBQ. Why BBQ instead of, say, hot dogs? Well, for starters, BBQ is awesome. But more to the point, turns out there is some pretty great BBQ outside of KC and Texas and Memphis and the Carolinas (although I will be going to one of those) so I’ll be checking some of it out wherever I can. Having lived in Austin and Houston and Memphis for 6 years, I consider myself somewhat of a BBQ aficionado. We’ll see how the rest of it stacks up.

Hope you decide to check in on my travels from time to time. Should everything go according to plan (please, please let there be no rain outs), I’ll be in these cities for games …
