I have always wanted to do it, and this summer I am finally going to: a baseball summer. Strange as it may seem for someone from England, but I have always been fascinated by the American summer and, more specifically, the love of baseball. As I have travelled around the world, I have found myself increasingly drawn to the baseball games on ESPN. Eventually, I made a special trip to Houston to take in my first MLB game: the Chicago Cubs @ Houston Astros. It was everything I'd expected, and more: a train running across the ballpark when there was a home run, and margaritas served in your seats. There's nothing like it in England. Even at the Royal Opera House, you have to collect your own drinks.
Well, to get back on track, this summer I am finally going to do my American baseball tour! Starting in Florida, I'm going to drive across America and take in about 10 mlb games in different cities. It's going to be a baseball summer.
