Jul 10, 2011 - First day of games

Not a great day today. Caleb's team played two games and lost both of them. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for the Pirates. As for me, I am enjoying the beauty of the scenery, watching over 1000 12 year old boys play baseball, and being with my kids and grandkids. What is better than that?

Jul 9, 2011 - Play Ball!

Hi, We are all in Cooperstown to be with Caleb as he participles in a week of all things baseball. We are staying in a house that is a renovated barn, and it is great! There is a pond in the back yard and there is fishing. Vi and Ruth are coming today, he will love it! Caleb checked in yesterday and Erik went to have breakfast with him this morning. All the teams stay at the park in dorms. There are about 104 teams of 11 or 12 boys each, all 12 years old. At least we hope they are! That's a lot of boys! This afternoon Caleb will be in "the...

Jun 6, 2011 - Glimmerglass State Campground

We spent two nights at the Glimmerglass State Campground located in Cooperstown, NY. Glimmerglass is a small park that is located a short drive from downtown Cooperstown, NY. The park has 37 sites with no hookups. While we were there we walked along their beautiful lake beach, and found a covered bridge near by. Their Black Locus trees were in full bloom.

Sep 28, 2010 - Day Seventeen - Pennsylvania & New York State

Hello Everyone, Today we had a pretty good day as the weather started off shitty but improved as the day went on and ended up being quite nice once we entered New York. Our day started badlthough as I got stuck in a rain storm between the campground office and the RV and even though it was only 45 meters, I got drenched. WHen we finally dried me off and emptied out the shitter for the day, we headed straight to Hershey's Chocolate World for a look around and to buy some goodies to send home to the kids. This place was packed and it was...

Sep 4, 2010 - Cooperstown - National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum

From Ilion Marina & RV Park, Ilion, NY, 10 miles east of Utica within earshot of I-90. After being a bit underwhelmed by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we did our best to hold our expectations of what we would find at the baseball Hall. I hope I don’t offend anyone, but we found the baseball Hall to be far superior to that of football. It was much larger with many more exhibits, encompassing the history of the game & artifacts of various players, teams, ballparks, etc, & more interactive exhibits……I just felt much more connected to the...

We're Wingin' It

Jul 5, 2010 - Through New York State to ... Canada!

We drove north from Cooperstown, passing through Syracuse, and found our way to the 1000 Island Bridge over the St. Lawrence, which leads to the Canadian border. The islands are certainly beautiful, and the customs was easy. We headed up to Ottawa, and checked into a municipal campground outside the city.

Jun 30, 2010 - Cooperstown

When we got on the road this morning, we decided that we would travel cross country to Cooperstown without using any freeways. Glenna and I enjoy slowing down and spending time traveling small town where ever. Today turned into one of those days. We really enjoyed upstate New York. There was obviously a tremendous Allis Chalmers dealer somewhere south of Clayton, New York. We saw dozens of 1970’s vintage AC tractors on farms along the way. They outnumbered John Deere and Case IH combined. The farms were generally small and diversified and...

Jun 15, 2010 - Cooperstown Beverage Trail & Baseball Hall of Fame

We drove toward Cooperstown (about a half hour away from the campground) following the Cooperstown Beverage Trail with stops at Bear Pond Winery, Cooperstown Brewing Company, Ommegang Brewery and Fly Creek Cider Mill. The mill is still operational in the fall and only makes cider from apples grown in NY. Along the drive we toured the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown where we saw a quick movie about baseball history, saw several exhibits on the various baseball players in the Hall of Fame then finally walked through the Hall of Fame...

Aug 13, 2009 - Baseball Hall of Fame

This is Freddy's day. We went to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Freddy is a big New York Yankee's fan, and there is plenty of Yankees in the Hall of Fame. Any baseball fan should come here if they get the chance. I think we spent about 5 - 6 hours looking and reading.

Jun 24, 2009 - The games have ended

The Games have ended As feared, the Georgia Storm was eliminated from the tournament in the first game of sudden death. While the team did not win as many games as they may have wished, they competed well against their opponents and with a couple of breaks could have won at least three more games. Nevertheless, the team seemed to enjoy their trip to Cooperstown and demonstrated good sportsmanship throughout the tournament. It was quite a spectacle with eighty eight teams competing and the Storm playing seven games over three and ½ days of...

Jun 23, 2009 - Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday: In honor of my birthday, we have a free morning with the games both scheduled for later today. Providing the Internet is available at the library, this journal will now be up to date. A later posting will be made covering today’s activities at the ballpark and within a couple of days, the posted pictures will become more of scenery and less of Stephen playing baseball. At this time, we anticipate departing Cooperstown on Thursday, June 25th and heading further north to Ottawa and Montreal Canada. Addendum: Results from the...

Jun 22, 2009 - The Storm Wins!!!!!

The Storm Wins!!!! After three straight losses, two by one run, the North Georgia Storm finally landed in the victory column by a score of 11 to 7. The morning game was lost to a team from Miami by a score of 6 to 5 with the winning run scored in the opponents last at bat. The weather has improved and the fields are beginning to dry so maybe our luck will change. Stephen pitched the first four innings and left the game with a 5 to 4 lead but in the sixth inning the opponents scored two runs to win. The Miami team was huge with at least six...
