2010 Baseball Roadtrip

I just bought the final set of tickets for The Third Annual Cook Grandfather-Father-Son Baseball Roadtrip of 2010 (click to see full-sized picture):

Welcome to Mannywood.jpg
Hey, California – state of my birth, HERE WE COME!

  • Oakland-Aladema County Colesium: check
  • Dodger Stadium: you bet’cha
  • Petco Park: you know it
  • Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Orange County, CA: wouldn’t miss it
  • AT&T Park:  indubitably

A couple Roadtrip notes and factoids:

  1. This will be my first time in over 30 years visiting the site of my MLB debut, which at the time was called Anaheim Stadium, but now hosts a team allegedly from “Los Angeles.”  Hey, Angels.  I’m not buying it.  And guess what?  Neither is my credit card company.  My credit card statement says I bought the tickets from the “California Angels.”
  2. My uncle and his family live in Orange County and for the first time in the storied history of the Great Cook Grandfather-Father-Son Baseball Roadtrip, we are hoping to have a guest roadtripper for one game — my Dad’s brother and my uncle, Carl.  Looking forward to it!
  3. Also for the first time in C.G.-F.-S.B.R. history, we will be meeting up with our beloved Seattle Mariners for a couple games.  Go Mariners!
  4. At 5, this will be the most stadiums we’ve ever visited during one roadtrip.
  5. At 6, this will be the most games we’ve ever attended during one roadtrip.
  6. This will be the first roadtrip where all games take place in the same state.
  7. This will be Tim’s first time visiting California.
  8. For the third year in a row, Tim will get to run professional base paths on the roadtrip.  We love “Kids Run The Bases” days!
