One Ball, No Strikes

Today, I was almost completely unable to focus on getting any real work done whatsoever.  My only objective for most of the day was planning out my route and itinerary for seeing as much baseball as possible in as many different cities as possible.  The following is my tentative route:

May 29:  Milwaukee, Brewers/Mets - Miller Park
May 30:  Chicago, Cards/Cubs - Wrigley Field
May 31:  Detroit, A's/Tigers - Comerica Park
June 1: Pittsburgh, Cubs/Pirates - PNC Park
June 2: New York, Orioles/Yanks - New Yankee Stadium (sadly, I'm two years too late for the House That Ruth Built)
June 3: Boston, A's/Red Sox - Fenway Park
June 4: Philadelphia, Padres/Phillies - Citizens Bank Park
June 5:  This is where things get a little hazy.  I've already been to Camden Yards, back in 2005.  Who were they playing that day?  The Boston Red Sox.  Who are they playing on this day?  The Boston Red Sox.  The universe may be conspiring against me.  I may go on to DC for the Reds/Nationals game that day.  If I decide to take in the game in Baltimore, I'll hit DC the next day.

The Braves play in Los Angeles that weekend, so it is tempting to fly across the country and hit the west coast swing for a few days.  I may have to play this one by ear for now.  Please feel free to comment on this itinerary or offer your own suggestions.
