There is nothing better than watching a baseball game in person. The crack of the bat, the pop of the glove, the smell of the field, the taste of the hot dogs. It all makes for a great time watching a ball game. In 2013, my brother and myself had the opportunity to watch a game in several different ball parks. Some were large Major League stadiums, some were minor league or independent league stadiums, others were fields where kids get to play the game they love. Enjoy the tour of our 2013 baseball season.
