Blog on the Run

Dearest patrons of The Serious Tip,

Your beloved blog is going on tour. Hello Cleveland! Well, not really that type of tour. More like a tour of the Grapefruit League.

Starting with tonight's contest between the Florida State Seminoles and the Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, Fla., I will be travelling throughout the Central Florida landscape attempting to take in as much baseball as possible. Other games I hope to attend include:

Dodgers at Nationals in Melbourne Viera - March 4th
Yankees at Pirates in Bradenton - March 10th (assuming I don't find easy tickets to the upcoming ACC Tournament)
Mets at Tigers in Lakeland - March 11th
Indians at Devil Rays in St. Petersburg - March 17th
Braves at Reds in Sarasota - March 18th
Blue Jays at Twins in Fort Myers - March 23rd
Marlins at Red Sox in Fort Myers - March 25th
Mets at Devil Rays in Tropicana Field - March 31st

Unfortunately, because I am employed and The Man makes me go to work, I won't have the opportunity to see the Orioles, Cardinals, or Astros. However, if I attend every game I hope to, by Opening Day I will have seen 15 of the 18 Grapefruit League teams at eight different ballparks.

Of course, as should be expected, I will be writing and posting entries as I tour, providing details on the sights, sounds, and experiences of each game. I might even be able to shed a little insight on what to expect during the 2007 baseball season. And finally, to my readers in or visiting Florida, feel free to drop me a line at if you would like to meet up over a dog and a beer or two, or three, or nine. See you there.
