I have always loved sports. From hockey to hurling, I have yet to find a sport that I do not enjoy watching. Minor League Baseball, however, has always held a special place in my heart. This summer, after a lifetime of dreaming, I will be moving out to New York to work with a Minor League Baseball team, the Auburn Doubledays, to complete a wide variety of tasks. Even though the Doubledays are five leagues below the Washington Nationals, their parent club in Major League Baseball, the team is built on the community that surrounds it. I could not be more excited to spend time getting to know the inner-workings of a professional baseball team.
On top of working for the Doubledays, I will be traveling around the state of New York reviewing stadiums for Stadium Journey. These posts will be under the Reviews portion of the website, but I will also be sure to mention any additions to that page on here. Also, I will be writing articles about different stadiums at various points of the summer, which can be found on the Articles section of the website.
This website will serve as a platform for me to document my journey through the summer. These posts will focus more on the places I visit, the people I meet, and the stories I hear, rather than the specifics of my work. I will be posting every Sunday morning about the journeys of the past week, with a few other posts in between.
Today, I leave for Auburn, New York. On my way out to New York, I will be stopping in Albany, New York to review Bellizzi Stadium, Home of the Albany Dutchmen of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. After my first week in the office in Auburn, the Doubledays will begin their season on Friday the 17th as they host the Batavia Muckdogs.
Until next week,
