Give the Gift of Baseball This Father's Day

Guest Author - Kimberly Misra

Looking for a unique Father’s Day gift that’s sure to please? Consider the gift of baseball. The company Big League Tours is offering a myriad of travel packages for baseball fans this year, including trips to Boston/New York, New York/Cooperstown, Chicago/Milwaukee, Detroit, and St. Louis/Kansas City.

A typical Big League Tour includes the following:

• A “meet and greet” session with a former major league player (a great
photo-op for Dad, especially if he's an autograph collector)
• Accommodations at a centrally located hotel Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
• Ground transportation
• Field level game tickets

On some tours you’ll also be able to watch a practice session or take a tour of the stadium. Trips are available in lengths ranging from two to five nights, depending on which city you choose. Package prices begin at $585 per person. No child’s rate is currently offered, but this doesn’t mean children are discouraged. Glen Dunlap, President of Big League Tours, reports that families make up the majority of his clientele and that he frequently sees two or even three generations traveling together. Given the length of an average ball game however, these tours are probably best suited for older kids who enjoy baseball and don’t mind lengthy bus rides. Many tours have downtime scheduled in, allowing you time to explore your chosen city. If you’d like to spend more time sight-seeing, you can choose an expanded package so you will not have to switch hotels mid-trip.

According to Glen Dunlap, the Boston/New York package has been the most requested this year. A quick look at the Big League Tours website yielded an itinerary for the 3-night, 3-game Boston/New York option offered this June. The trip begins on a Friday with a private tour of Fenway Park and a meet and greet session with a former player, followed by an evening Red Sox game. The following day you travel by train to New York City, check into a new hotel, tour Yankee Stadium, and attend a Mets/Yankees game. On Sunday you’ll have time for sightseeing in New York City before catching one last game.

For further information on trips, check out the website link below and click on the “trip archives” section for daily logs and a photo gallery of past tours. And if Dad’s favorite team isn’t included in the tour lineup this year, don’t despair. Big League Tours will customize a trip just for you, incorporating the same elements as the regular tours.
