I have to admit, I find it hard even for me to sell something that has no dates, no itinerary and no price yet.
But all I can say is this….I put this idea into the head of a bunch of guys and they are chomping at the bit for the ultimate travelling baseball playing and viewing caravan experience out there.
There are some companies that take their clients on 3 or 4 day junkets to various MLB Parks which I think is pretty cool. But I don’t know of any baseball tour group that will give a very small amount of players (approx. 28) the chance to play in 3 or 4 different minor league parks and go to a few MLB games also, while enjoying the countryside in a chartered bus and staying at 3 and 4 star hotels.
Get 28 guys, every player gets 2 PATP uniforms with his name and number on it, we go to the park every day and chose up sides. Get the pitchers and catchers in a group…divide them up then the remaining guys and play non pressure baseball all day at a new site. Have lunch during the day (another hot dog probably knowing Scott!) and back on the bus for a couple cold ones and back to hotel or MLB Park for a fun night.
Come on…is this not a great idea or what. When I mentioned it to several players recently in Durham they went crazy for it and the response since we put it in the summer sale promo has been great.
So, let’s do this…I’ll work on this in the next 2 months…you sign up and pay a refundable $200 deposit. We will keep track of the registrations as they come in and when we announce the dates, destinations and price, those wanting to play will pay the balance and those who can’t make the event will be given a full refund no questions asked.
I am targeting 2 area’s…..New England and the greater Washington D.C. Baltimore area….
This will be one hell of a trip…..we might even have a daily Kangaroo Court….(I’ll see if Jon Warden will join us)
Guys this will be awesome…it’s a no lose situation…..we may have stumbled on a new concept of adult baseball….be at the inaugural event! Register below for “The Road Trip”
