Since the trip is now officially last year, I figured it was about time to put it into the archives, so to speak.
I went back to the original posts about the trip and edited them into a full trip report, including the photos and even some of the comments. I also wrote a page on which I discuss some of the planning that went into the trip. The best news for people who want to read about the trip is that you don’t have to start at the “bottom” and work up; now that it’s not in blog form, it reads normally. The link to the narrative is also at the top of this page.
Don’t worry, I didn’t delete the original posts. They’re still in the blog archives (scroll down to the bottom of this page and select “August 2004” or “September 2004”).
Jason: A fine read. So, how many ballparks remain that you yet have to visit?
Jim: There are now 13 major league ballparks I haven’t been to (counting RFK Stadium in Washington). Any interest in a long weekend trip to Phoenix and Denver at some point this year?
Jason: Sure. Any interest in checking out a whole bunch of minor league games in California next year?
Jason: And I just noticed the new title of the site. Funny!
Jim: Re the previous comment, for posterity: this blog was briefly named “Baseball-Related Program Activities of Anaheim.” (I almost named it “Los Angeles Baseball-Related Program Activites of Anaheim,” but decided that was just a little too ridiculous. Maybe that’s why I’m not a baseball team owner!)
thatbob: Why schedule a long weekend roadtrip to Phoenix later this year when it might be easier to include it in a Baseball Related Programing Activities West Coast Road Trip 2005. After all, it’s only a 5.5 hour drive from San Diego, but a whole 7(!) hours from Los Angeles!
