This year our trip is to see the Nats v. Mets at Nationals Park and Orioles v. Red Sox at Camden Yards.
A couple of years ago I don't think I would have been too excited to see the Orioles or Nationals but if they are as good as last year, this should be a good trip. I have already been to Camden Yards and got to see Eddie Murray hit his 501st home run. I can't wait to get back and show my kids - I absolutely loved the ballpark experience there. I think the boys will love the Babe Ruth birthplace museum, too.
Nationals Park will be new for me so I am jacked to add a new park to the list this year. With Washington and Baltimore being so close, it will be nice to have such a short drive and will give us more time in Washington to see the sights.
Of course, although we made plans with our congressman's office starting in February to secure a spot on a White House tour, we were later informed that all tours were cancelled due to the Sequestration budget cuts. Boo.
We are also planning a separate trip to Indianapolis in June to see the Durham Bulls take on the Indianapolis Indians at Victory Field. We were in Indy in January for a swim meet and took a walk around the park – it looks like a nice place to see a game with the Indy skyline in the background.
And as I write this, the Cubs are in first place. I don’t image that I will be able to say that much longer as this looks like it will be a long year for Northside baseball fans.
