So the 2014 MLB baseball schedule was released yesterday at 1pm. And the planning started at 1:01pm. It seems crazy to be excited about 2014 but let’s face it the Twins suck this year so interest is waning but hey next year is a new year and they will be better…right? I hope! So the schedule has the usually suspects but the thing that interests me the most is the interleague games. These games happen very rarely and there is a 50/50 chance the games will be played at their ball park. That means road trip! So this year was DC and the two Texas stadiums (the two Texas games were not interleague.) 2014 is the year we play the NL West. I have not been to a baseball stadium out west…the closest I came was Arlington, TX and that is barely over the Mississippi River. Ok so it is 369 miles away but you get what I mean, right? LOL!
I thought wouldn’t it be nice if the Twins could play back-to-back series in LA or SF/Oakland. But of course the schedule wasn’t that nice to us. Here are my complaints:
- The Twins play at the Rays in April and it is a mid-week series so…can’t go because work is crazy.
- The Twins play at the Mariners in July and it is a mid-week series so…can’t go because work is crazy.
- The Twins play at the Rockies in July…we have to be there in May for Matthew’s graduation and I really don’t want to go to Colorado twice in one year…so no.
- The Twins play at the Padres and Giants when we are going to be in Colorado for the graduation…this may work.
May 16-20 – Denver (Rockies Stadium)
May 20-22 – San Diego (Petco)
May 22-23 – on our way to San Francisco
May 23-27 – San Francisco/Oakland (AT&T and Coliseum)
4 Ballparks in 11 days! If you want a map, I created this cute little map of our plan. See the little baseballs, planes, the car and the graduation hat? I feel so clever.
