Baseball Summer: Cleveland

We flew from NYC to Cleveland and arrived a day before the tour group from Broach Baseball tours got there.

The Cleveland Indians were paying the New York Yankees. This would be the second time we got to see the great Derek Jeter on his farewell to Baseball tour. As it turned out, we saw the final start of a pitcher named Masahiro Tanaka who the Yankees had paid a kings ransom to come over to them from Japan. In Japan he had a phenomenal season and it looked like he was going to be worth every Yen he would be paid. But he came out of this game in the sixth inning with a torn ligament in his elbow. Oh well, basically there went the Yankee’s season.

Before this game we visited the Rock & Roll hall of fame.

The HOF was right down the street from our hotel, Staying on a stree called Roc & Roll Blvd was kind of cool.

The building was ultra-modern and I had high hopes for the experience.

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a Deadhead. I was looking forward to seeing how the HOF handled my favorite band.

The first thing you see when you walk in is a display of guitars from Jerry Garcia.

OK, so this might be good. NOT. This museum should be called the Dick Clark HOF. It was almost strictly top forty. I was bored beyond words.

Back to Baseball.

Progressive Field in Cleveland was about as stimulating as the R&R HOF. My notes mention nothing about food, so it must not have been very good.

One thing my notes mention is that there are not enough mens rooms, and after standing in a long line to get in, you have to stand in another line to get to one of the very few urinals. Not good.

We watched the Yankees  lose. We then joined up with the tour. We were now off to Detroit.

Thanks for reading. Make a comment, even if it is about standing in line for the bathroom. Share with a friend!
