Me, my brother and a friend are thinking of doing this trip May 13-22nd. Its alot of games and driving in 10 days....do you think its feasable?
13th - Twins vs. Blue Jays - 7:10pm - Target Field
14th - Brewers vs. Pirates - 3:10pm - Miller Park
15th - Cubs vs. Giants - 1:20pm - Wrigley Field
16th - White Sox vs. Rangers - 7:10pm - US Cellular Field
17th - Tigers vs. Blue Jays - 7:05pm - Comerica Park
18th - Blue Jays vs. Rays - 7:07pm - Rogers Centre
19th - No Game
20th - Red Sox vs. Cubs - 7:10pm - Fenway Park
21st - Yankees vs. Mets - 7:10pm - Yankee Stadium
22nd - Phillies vs. Rangers - 1:35pm - Citizens Bank Park
This looks do-able to me. It's all pretty much containted to the northern mid-west/northeast. Hope you get to see my Giants beat the cubs.
Paul, this is an easy trip. Minnesota to Milwaukee is only 5.5 hours(hint:stay at a Motel 6 is Minnesota so you can check in at 12 PM-gives you a three hour head start for a rest. You will need to leave at 7 am on the 14th to make Miller Park. You have 2 games more to stay in Chicago which is easy. I would priceline bid a Milwaukee stay on the 14th as you can get a hotel for $30-35 which is way cheaper then Chicago. Heading out on the 16th you should stay at the Best Western in Valpraiso, Indiana-it is only 15 minutes from the I-90 Hwy/ one hour from US Cellular-and would probably go for $80 per night.
I take it there is no game the 19th because you guys have a function to attend? If you are looking for somethin in between the cities of Toronto and Boston-don't forget about the Baseball Hall Of Fame-which is half way to Boston from Toronto. Cooperstown is only 3.5-4 hours away from Boston. You best have lots of small bills and coins for this. You can expect to pay $15 of tolls in Chicago-another $10 getting to Detroit-$4 for going over the bridge back into the USA from the Rogers Center-another $20-25 in driving to Boston and you know the New York scene for tolls. Are you driving one of your guys car-or are you renting?
Me and my Pal are going to fly to Minneapolis, my brother lives in ohio so he will drive to the Twin Cities and we will drive in his car the rest of the way. I have friends in Minnesota, so we can crash with them, as well as in Toronto. I live in NY, on long island, so we will stay overnight at my place between NYY and Phillies. My brother will drop us back home, stay a day more and head back home.
Now I just need him to hurry up and get his passport!
