I am happy and excited to announce our 2016 schedule of baseball tours!
Tour #1 is going to be a lot of fun for many reasons. The trip starts off by making our first visit to the College World Series. I have been to Omaha many times for the College World Series on my own or with a group of kids that I coached in the summer, but all of those experiences was at Rosenblatt Stadium. I have only heard good things about the new venue, TD Ameritrade Park, and am excited to see it.
I love American History and specifically enjoy the Sixties and studying the JFK years. Although I have been to Dealey Plaza twice before, it is truly a humbling experience to visit the site of the JFK assassination. While in town for a Texas Rangers game, we will be spending both nights in the same Hampton Inn.
Another highlight is personal, yet our touring group is going to be pleasantly surprised by seeing and meeting Jordan Harazin in Nashville if he’s not on tour. Jordan was just sitting in my Government/Economics classroom 4 1/2 years ago and now he’s on his own recording music and “living the dream.” We saw him on a tour in 2014 and everyone in our group of 50+ people were thoroughly impressed, even the ones who don’t care for country music. In addition to being a great singer/song writer, he does a great Johnny Cash tribute.
I have been to each of these Major League stadiums before and am excited to get back to see them again.
Tour #2 is unique because of all of the Halls of Fame we will be attending. Whether we’re talking football, baseball, basketball, or hockey, we’re going to see each Hall of Fame. In addition to just sports, we’re also going to visit the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
This tour is special because it also gives one the opportunity to see the last two remaining classic parks (Fenway Park and Wrigley Field), in addition to another fan favorite – Yankee Stadium.
We are also going to make our first visit to a Toronto Blue Jays game. I have been hesitant to do this in the past, but have decided this is the year to give it a go after speaking with other companies and how they handle border crossings. It is much simpler than I thought it would be, although travelers will need to make sure to have a passport. I am looking forward to it.
There may be a Tour #3 but nothing will be official until April. If you have any interest in this tour, which would include a game at Yankee Stadium on the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, please contact us. I think it would be special to be in NYC on 9/11, 2016. The trip would include home games for every team on the East Coast (Red Sox, Yankees, Mets, Phillies, Orioles, and Nationals) and would begin/end near the airport in Newark, New Jersey (Newark Liberty International Airport).
Thank you for reading about our 2016 schedule of tours and remember to please contact us if you have any questions. Thanks again and I look forward to potentially seeing you on a tour next summer!
