Baseball Road Trip of a Lifetime: Detroit

I never had the chance to go to many baseball games with my Dad. The one time we did hit a game was a Spring Training affair between the Blue Jays and Phillies down in Clearwater, Florida.

I don't remember anything from the game other than walking up to the park, finding it out it was sold out and going back to the car only to see that the guys who parked us on their lawn conveniently packed so many other vehicles in...we couldn't get out.

So we went back to the park, pleaded our case...and was let in.

In the second installment of his "Baseball Road Trip of a Lifetime", fried of The Hall Navin Vaswani and his Dad hit Comerica Park in Detroit and, thankfully, brought home with them more memories.

I made the trek down to Detroit Tuesday morning, bright and early, with my father. I needed a ride to the Motor City and he - pardon the pun - stepped up to the plate. It was, in a way, fitting that The Baseball Road Trip Of A Lifetime began with my Dad and I taking in the matinee between the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals at Comerica Park; I'm glad it worked out that way.
