I recently read a stat that the average age of viewers of the Major League Baseball World Series was 53. As a 38-year-old baseball fan, I’m not sure what that says about me, but as I sit and watch baseball on opening day I can’t help but get excited about the opportunity to travel for some baseball this summer. To me, baseball opening day signals summer travel season is upon us, even though it’s technically still a couple of months away.
What’s a better travel experience for a sports-obsessed fan than a visit to baseball spring training? I’ve traveled for the four major professional sports leagues in North America, not to mention college football and basketball, the Olympics and Premier League soccer. But there is just something about baseball travel that gets me excited.
