I used to spend most of my time on holiday pretending I was working, and working pretending I was on holiday, which has been a very fortunate way to discover the world.

Baseball, as an Object of Tourism.

Baseball, one of America’s favorite past-times. No longer do fans have to be content to watch this pleasant sport in their own backyard, for in today’s world, baseball tourism is becoming a major trend in travel. Visiting the many fine baseball stadiums around the United States is a wonderful way to structure a trip, whether by plane, train, or getting behind the wheel for road trip. Or, while you’re in a city for business or leisure, check out what games might be happening in town during your stay. With baseball-themed travel, you may just end up at a historic game.

On the photo, I appear with Juan Marichal (born October 20, 1937 in Laguna Verde, Dominican Republic) who is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball. Playing for the San Francisco Giants most of his career, also played for the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers for the final two seasons of his career. Marichal was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983.
