What's Left?

Version 4.2, reflecting the trips taken and planned through 2017.

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:
  • San Francisco Giants
  • Oakland Athletics
  • Sacramento River Cats
  • Reno Aces
  • Modesto Nuts
  • San Jose Giants
  • Stockton Ports
Lake Ontario (and vicinity)

Several of these teams were on a 2016 itinerary that had to be shortened.
  • Auburn Doubledays
  • Batavia Muckdogs
  • Binghamton Rumble Ponies
  • Buffalo Bisons
  • Erie SeaWolves
  • Rochester Red Wings
  • Toronto Blue Jays
Florida

We didn't get to all nine games as planned in 2016 and the Brevard County Manatees moved to a new stadium and rebranded themselves as the Florida Fire Frogs. That leaves Melvin with five teams to see and Rob with two. If it doesn't take too long to build, we might come back to visit the new home of the Tampa Bay Rays, still only a concept.
  • Bradenton Marauders
  • (Port) Charlotte Stone Crabs
  • Clearwater Threshers
  • Dunedin Blue Jays
  • Florida Fire Frogs
