2013 Baseball Trip-Game 4: Hoppin’ good fun in Greensboro

It’s a shame Jordan and I weren’t able to welcome Mike to Greensboro when he was visiting a few weeks ago, but he wrote about it on his Minoring in Baseball blog. Enjoy his thoughts on the park and the game, and check out the great pictures he got! Also, check out his blog for stories about the othe ballparks he visited while in the area.

Thanks for coming out, Mike! Glad you enjoyed your visit.


See ya at the ballpark!

        Oh, we hit the Bulls game the next day, and the Dash a couple of days later. We saw 10 games in all in NC, then a Whitecaps game here in Michigan. All great ballparks down there. I really liked Durham and Asheville, too.

    Bah! Looks like I can only do 2 levels of replies…. Glad you had a great time down here, Mike. We definitely have lots of opportunity for baseball. I *love* Durham, as well. I haven’t been to a game in Asheville yet, but I only hear good things about their park and the experience.

    Looking forward to your next visit to the Carolinas, and I hope I’ll be able to join you for a game or two when you’re back in the area. And if I ever make it to Michigan, you know I’ll be in touch.
