UPDATED 5/26 – Kevin’s 2018 Baseball Tour


There are two activities I love to follow in the summer – drum corps and baseball.  I’m sure you’re already aware of my drum corps fixation, so let’s talk about baseball for a bit.

2016 Baseball Tour – Mahoning Valley Scrappers vs. Batavia Muckdogs (6/27/2016)

Aaand it’s back to single A ball, this time short season. Hey, I didn’t say I was going in order of league.

The Mahoning Valley Scrappers’ season is about to start as I write this. When I go to the game on the 27th, they’ll have played for just over a week. One of the great things about the lower level minor league teams is how intimate and community based their stadiums are. You can tell that going to a Scrappers game is something which Youngstown area families love to do. Of course, I’m going by myself, but I still enjoy the charm.

If you’d like to join me at the game, let me know in the comments section below. Minor league games are fun to attend and are very affordable compared to major league teams like the Indians. I’ll also be posting some of Mr photos on social media so be sure to friends and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Foursquare, and Flickr.
