Mike’s baseball challenge….game 1

July 11, 2013

It has been a while but I finally made it to a Major League game and lived to tell about it! My challenge of all the teams in 9 years now took me to Cleveland where the Indians hosted the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Indians won the game three to zero behind the fine pitching of Ubaldo Jimenez and the Indians bullpen.  The game was delayed about 40 minutes by a downpour. Below are a few pictures I shot during the game.

Well there it is my first game of the journey. I love Progressive Field and am an Indians fan. For some reason I have seen the Blue Jays play many times down through the years so this seemed a great game to start with. I had a great time and hope you enjoyed reading about it.

Mike’s baseball challenge!

I love Baseball and I love traveling. I also love reading about travel and I love to write too. I just turned 40 last October. My challenge is to see every Major League Baseball team play in person by the time I’m 50. This isn’t a huge challenge but I am 3 to 4 hours away from Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. Check back during baseball season to see and hear where I end up and the people I encounter.
