To the Berkshires and Capital District


After a wonderful family vacation on a Caribbean Cruise, I am happy to be back in the saddle and shortly after getting back to The States, we’re ready to hit the road for some stadiums. It’s been awhile since our last visit, especially given that I was at the Rockland Boulders wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. Thankfully, the relentless heat looks to break nicely for a pair of games this weekend. This trip is brief, but productive as I’ll leave NJ Saturday afternoon for the Berkshires. There lies Pittsfield and I’ll take in a Collegiate Wood-Bat League game at Wahconah Park, where I’m eagerly looking forward to going back in time to a truly historic stadium. After the game, I’ll stay in NY and avoid the outrageous hotel prices. The next game is in Troy, where the ValleyCats play against Lowell in a 5 PM affair. Not sure where I will spend my time before the game as I’ll either find something in Eastern NY or head back to Pittsfield (about 45 minutes from Troy) for the midday. Two ballparks if the weather cooperates and the latter stadium will get me to 6 NY-Penn League ballparks out of their 14. Back next week with a wrap-up!
