2013 Minor League Roadtrip

Posted by William Lee Coleman III | Thursday, February 21, 2013 | Category: |

  Early on in the planning stage for my 2013 trip,  my attention was focused on seeing all the teams in the Appalachian League at home with some South Atlantic League teams mixed in for fun.  My trips are usually compacted in a week that embraces the option of seeing two games in two different cities the same day. However, the Appalachian League features some absurd scheduling and has a history of very view day games. Plus, its a short season league meaning I wouldn't be able to to do the trip until late June. My excitement level for the trip diminished very quickly. My attention then shifted to an area of the United States that I have never visited. After a couple of weeks of planning and consulting with the wife, I decided on doing the Midwest League. This trip will provide a nice mixture of players from organizations that I dont normally see in the Southern League and a nice mixture of both new and old stadiums. I might even get to visit the Field of Dreams and the Bob Feller Musuem.

The Midwest League features 16 teams spread across 7 states. I knew from the start that it wasn't possible for me to see all 16 teams at home so what started with me just seeing the teams in Iowa grew into some thing bigger when I noticed the 2013 Midwest League schedule featured one week where it was  possible to see all the West Division teams playing at home vs an Eastern Division team in late April and early May. That really sold me on the trip. I will be seeing all the Midwest League teams minus the West Michigan Whitecaps in a six day period. A Brewers game also fits in nicely to my itinerary. I will see the Eastern Division teams of the Midwest League at home a year or two from now.

I plan to depart Pensacola early on the 27th of April, fly directly into Milwaukee, pray for no snow,and then see the following games:

Beliot: Snappers April 27th vs  South Bend Silver Hawks 2:00 pm

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers : April 28th vs South Bend Silver Hawks 1:05 pm

Milwaukee Brewers: April 29th vs Pittsburgh Pirates 7:05 pm

Cedar Rapids Kernels : April 30th vs Lancaster Lugnuts 12:05 pm

Quad Cities Bandits : April 30th vs Great Lakes Loons 7 pm

Clinton Lumber Kings : May 1st vs Dayton Dragons 6:30 pm

Burlington Bees : May 2nd vs Fort Wayne Tin Caps 11:30 am

Peoria Chiefs: May 3rd vs Lake County Captains 11 am

Kane County Cougars : May 3rd vs Bowling Green Hot Rods 6:30 pm

    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
