Every year, our family takes a road trip for vacation. For the past several years, we have tried very hard to incorporate a Major League Baseball game into that trip. This year is no different. Actually, this year will be a LOT different!
You see, this year, we are going to see TWO baseball games at two different parks. That's not even the best part. The best part? I will finally get to see the Cleveland Indians play at The Jake! Wahoo! (Yeah, yeah, to me it will ALWAYS be The Jake.)
Most of my side of the family lives in/near Pittsburgh, so this year our vacation will take us back to my hometown. When we go, we will catch a game in Cleveland at the beginning of the week and then a Pirates game near the end of the week! Wahoo! I have never looked forward to June so much - not even when I was a kid waiting for the first day of summer break!
The great thing about seeing the Pirates play? Some of my extended family will be joining us! I can't even remember the last time I saw a ballgame with my Mom's brother and and sister. Heck, I'm not even sure we ever did, though I think we did. Probably back in '77 or '78 maybe?
This is the #5 thing on my Bucket List, and since two of those have already been crossed off, seeing the Indians play *IN* Cleveland is actually #3 on my of things still to do! Wahoo!! I.AM.EXCITED!
