Baseball Traveling – Where Should I Go?

Baseball Traveling – Where Should I Go?

I have finally decided to do some serious baseball traveling.

When I originally came to Korea in late 2009, I wanted to use it as a springboard of sorts to see baseball in Asia. I have enjoyed my time here and have been afforded the chance to see Korean baseball up close.

Korean baseball fans are very passionate. They bring an excitement to the game I have rarely seen in the USA. I don’t know how many places I will travel to and see the same excitement, at least not on the level here. However, I am anxious to get out and see baseball in different countries.

I am not finished in South Korea until early next year. In the meantime, I will be planning my trip.

I have a lot of places I want to go, too many in fact. So over the coming months I will be narrowing down my list. I am very excited to get out and see what the baseball scene is like in other parts of the world.

I hope to see baseball in countries where the game is growing and thriving and in places where it might not be. I want to talk to those who play, coach, or just watch and find out why they do it. How did they find the game and why do they like it?

It’s going to be an interesting journey, and I hope you will follow along with me. I’ll be reaching out to people along the way for information on where to travel to and who to see. So if you know of a beautiful stadium, raucous crowds, or just teams with great history please let me know.

My journey will start in Europe and will take me from western to eastern Europe. After which I will fly or train to Asia. Many of the countries I will go to have established league but not all of them.

Ideally I’d like to make it to Central and South America next, but that may have to wait for another year. It will depend on my financials and if I am still wanting to stay on the road that long.

So far the countries I am looking at are:
Czech Republic

This list is in constant flux however and I haven’t decided how far in advance I want to schedule. The cities will depend on team schedules for next year as well as any contacts I am able to talk to and the suggestions they have.

What do you think? Would you add a place or take one away?

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit. ~Al Gallagher, 1971
