What's Left?

On the one hand, this page is the inverse of The List. Functionally, it's more of a planning tool for us. You can, with no offense taken, just click the button now. What? You're still here? Okay then, let's do this semi-geographically.

Northern California

The abomination that is Mount Davis at O.co Coliseum,
from Melvin's 2013 trip.

Here is a compact itinerary where the teams that are farthest apart are less than 250 miles from each other. On some past trips, we have covered that many miles in a single day, some times more than once on the same trip. From high to low:
  • Oakland Athletics
  • San Francisco Giants
  • Reno Aces
  • Sacramento River Cats
  • Modesto Nuts
  • San Jose Giants
  • Stockton Ports
Pacific Northwest

Carved posts, Alert Bay; Edward S. Curtis (c. 1914)

Rob has family in Oregon and Washington, so he has seen most of these teams. From north to south:
  • Vancouver Canadians
  • Everett AquaSox
  • Seattle Mariners
  • Tacoma Rainers
  • Hillsboro Hops
  • Salem-Keizer Volcanoes
  • Eugene Emeralds
Florida

We didn't get to all nine games as planned in 2016 and the Brevard County Manatees moved and rebranded themselves as the Florida Fire Frogs. That leaves Melvin with six teams to see and Rob with two.
  • Bradenton Marauders
  • (Port) Charlotte Stone Crabs
  • Clearwater Threshers
  • Dunedin Blue Jays
  • Florida Fire Frogs
  • Lakeland Flying Tigers
