September Weekend Getaway
Veterans Administration Memorial Stadium, Chillicothe, Ohio
This Great weekend started off in The Bronx, New York with a road trip to Chillicothe, Ohio for the Tim Martin Baseball Showcase that my Son Steven was participating in. This was the school’s first appearance of hopefully many more for the baseball team to get the players ready for the next level. Playing in Veterans Administration Memorial Stadium the home of the Chillicothe Paints from the Prospect League. With several University, College and a few Pro scouts in attendance to view and evaluate the participants. The players gave it their all on the field and on the final day played a game so they can be evaluated in game time situations. We left Chillicothe and headed North towards Cleveland on a 3 hour drive to make the Indians Baseball game.
Progressive Field/ KeyBank Park
We make it to Progressive Field and enter thru the Left Field Gate and the Ballpark is an Amazing site. We walked around taking it all in and then we found some seats in the lower field level by the Left Field Foul Pole that were way better than the seats we had. It was a great game the Indians winning 6-3. The Cleveland fans were very nice definitely different from what we were used to in Citi Field with our NY Mets. The crowd was more subdued and laid back than the loud and thundering noise of our home team. The whole experience was outstanding I would definitely do it again next time trying to catch a Cavaliers or Browns game being that the venues are so close to each other.
After the game we went to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame an awesome site that sits at the shores of Lake Erie.
We had to wait a day to go inside but it was worth it the exhibits were fantastic. They brought back flashbacks as you saw items from artist that you listened to or greats that you heard of. Due to time constraints we only got to view the basement attractions which took about an hour rushing thru it and there were five other floors to go. This would definitely make Cleveland a return trip to take in all the other attractions of this city with the whole family.
Platinum Membership in our ZYNTRAVEL Club will definitely make the return trip a worth while getaway with the travel credits that I get to apply towards Hotels, Car Rentals, Excursions, and Time Shares.
