With Memorial Day coming up and the it worked out where I don’t have to work the weekend or the holiday, it’s the perfect time for a trip! We’ll head on up to Portland, ME on Saturday morning. Hadlock Field is on tap for Sunday Afternoon game between the Sea Dogs and Connecticut. Then on Monday, we’ll head to one of the worse-named ballparks in the country Merchantsauto.com Stadium in Manchester, NH to see the Fisher Cats play Trenton. I’m excited as this is the first stadium in a couple months, with Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City being the last visit. That one was clutch that it worked out as there is only a few days where it hosts a sporting event (the A-10 basketball championship).
I was really hoping the AHL Pirates would still be in the playoffs, not only so I could see the Cumberland County Civic Center, but seeing the Sabres prospects would be great (still heartbroken they are no longer with my hometown Amerks). I’ll still try to check out the facility while I’m up there though.
The last summer holiday trip to Pittsburgh-Altoona (PNC Park and Blair County Ballpark) worked out perfectly with the weather and it’s looking like we should be able to squeeze out a couple mostly dry days here too.
Looking forward to a couple new ballparks and visiting a beautiful city and section of the country. I’ll have more posts with details on the trip next week, otherwise expect to see more updates to the site!
