Baseball Road Trip of a Lifetime: Philadelphia, Chicago and Minnesota

In the last couple of years, I've been to six different ballparks. In the last week or so, good friend of The Hall Navin Vaswani has been to three of them. The fourth, Target Field, wasn't on my short list of places to go until I saw it.
Hrbek's!

According to a story I found online (thanks Google!), Hrbek's will offer a "Rex Burger," a half-pound burger with fried onions filled with pepper jack cheese honoring his nickname.

"My favorite are the walleye fingers," said former Twin Kent Hrbek, an avid outdoorsman. "There are a lot of walleyes swimming around the lakes in Minnesota without any fingers."

Take THAT Philly cheese steaks and Chicago-style hot dogs!

Something tells me the folks at Target Field didn't name a bathroom after Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett. What? Too soon?!?

Take a gander at the last four places hit on the Baseball Roadtrip of a Lifetime:
You can follow Navin's exploits on Twitter at @eyebleaf or visit his piece of the interwebs over at Sports and the City. As a sidenote, you can also check out all the pictures he's been taking along the way. Just click HERE, look at my favorite picture so far...then check out the rest.


BallHype: hype it up!
