For the past seven years me and my son (age 17) and a couple uncles (my best friends) go to Cooperstown for the induction ceremony. This has been a fun way to teach my son about the game and it's rich history. Since there is no real inductions this year, we decided to tour the mid-west.

Went to Baltimore for the day. Taxi to and from the airport. Started in Eutaw Street where the smell of the food was great.
