If you have been racking your brain trying to come up with a great itinerary for a road trip, we have a simple, fun, and entertaining solution; take a minor league baseball road trip.
Minor league baseball is great value. Stadiums are small so everyone is close to the action, no matter what section they are sitting in. Level of play is highly competitive; the purpose of the minor leagues is to develop players into major leaguers. Tickets are cheap - you can expect to pay around $12 for decent seats. And there is great entertainment from the U.S. Army Parachute Team landing on a field and delivering the official game ball to the first pitch guest to children racing the team's mascot around the bases, these teams pull out all the stops.
One of the most interesting aspects of minor league baseball is where the stadiums are physically located. Unlike the major leagues where every team is located within close proximity to a major city, minor league teams operate in various geographical locations, from large, medium, and small towns to suburbs of major cities. The benefit of this reality is two fold. First, you get local culture; every ball park has its own unique story with interesting locals. Second, it's easier to locate an RV park close to a ball park in a town, as opposed to a major metropolitan city. Also, some ball parks even allow RVers to dry camp (boondock) in their parking lots.
Whether you're a baseball fan or just plain interested in taking a different kind of RV road trip, a minor league baseball tour is a great way to force yourself out of your travel comfort zone and discover unknown "gems". You will get to see a part of the country you otherwise never would have explored, experience local culture, drive on interesting roads, and witness some great baseball action. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and play ball!
