Triple In the Gap will be taking a hiatus while I gather material for further writing. I will be leaving tomorrow (6-14) for Washington D.C. where I will be meeting my friend Nick, his wife Emily and their son Luke. On the way there I plan to see the Toledo Mudhens and Pittsburgh Pirates. I will in Philadelphia Friday for the Twins/Phillies game and hopefully the White Sox Nationals game on Saturday. Where I stop on the way back has yet to be decided, but I’m leaning towards seeing games in Louisville and Indianapolis.
On a side note, I was planning to write a blog about Armando Gallaraga’s “perfect” game and how it was a better story because of the sportsmanship showed by himself, umpire Jim Joyce, manager Jim Leyland and the Detroit Tigers’ fans. Then I read Tom Verducci’s piece in the newest Sports Illustrated: excellent baseball writing.
Off to D.C.!
