Excitement is in the air as the League Championship Series kicks off today in the American League featuring Baltimore against Kansas City in the best of 7.

Started my day off with a great visit to Auburn University, but then struck out trying to attend a Montgomery Biscuits game. As the saying goes, three is a charm, so I started on another adventure. I raced out of the gift shop and headed back to my car. I cracked my second energy drink […]

After leaving my self guided tour of Auburn University, I continued South on I-85 towards Montgomery, Alabama. The goal was to see a Montgomery Biscuits game, AA Affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Having off time from work I enjoy hitting the open road, driving to new places and checking out “things.” The other day I made the drive, about an hour and a half, to Auburn University, home to the Tigers. With some advice from my friend Kelly, who graduated from there, I took the rest upon […]

Only I can turn a nine hour drive into a 12 hour drive. Just ask my mom, who sat in the car screaming at me the entire time, it is not for the lack of speed that I drive. It is all due to the number of baseball stadiums that I stop to see along […]
