baseball-airstreamWhat’s more all-American than heading to Florida in a 2013 Airstream Interstate to see Major League Baseball players put a spring in their steps and a charge in their bats.

The Sunshine State is home to 15 teams comprising the Grapefruit League: the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, Washington Nationals, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins. The remaining 15 MLB teams make up Arizona’s Cactus League.

Pitchers and catchers begin reporting to camp as early as Feb. 11. A full slate of Grapefruit League games begins Feb. 23, running through the end of March.

Spring training affords fans lower ticket prices and a more relaxed atmosphere to see their favorite teams and, along with that, more opportunities to get autographs, photographs and maybe a foul ball or broken bat.

Add to that the chance to soak up some legendary sunshine while much of the rest of the country struggles to shed the last vestiges of winter, and what’s not to like? Plus, many of Florida’s most popular attractions and beaches are within easy driving distance of some spring training sites.

The greater Tampa Bay area, for instance, is home to five Grapefruit League teams, as well as Tampa’s Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo, and Clearwater’s marine aquarium, where Winter the movie star dolphin lives.

Tampa also boasts George M. Steinbrenner Field, where the Yankees hone their lineup. Formerly named Legends Field, the ballpark built in 1996 has dimensions that mimic the old Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

Heading northeast in the 2013 Airstream Interstate, the next spring training stop is Lakeland’s Joker Marchant Stadium to see the American League champion Tigers. Lakeland is within an hour’s drive of two Central Florida Grapefruit League venues: Kissimmee, spring home of the Astros, and, 15 miles away, Lake Buena Vista’s Champion Stadium at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World.

The Braves play practice games at double-decker Champion Stadium, which offers skyboxes, suites, a grassy knoll and other amenities of an MLB ballpark. While in the area, Airstream travelers can hop over to any of the Disney theme parks and to nearby SeaWorld or Universal Studios.

To the east, about 60 miles as the Airstream rolls, is Viera, where the Washington Nationals train at Space Coast Stadium. From there, it’s 75 miles south to Port St. Lucie to see the Mets. Then it’s another 41 miles south to Jupiter’s Roger Dean Stadium, where fans can catch the Marlins and Cardinals.

Leaving the Atlanic coast, the spring training tour heads west to the cities fronting the Gulf of Mexico. Fort Myers boasts a double dip of baseball with the Red Sox and Twins, which play in stadiums some eight miles apart.

The final stop is less than an hour north on Interstate 75 in Port Charlotte, where the Tampa Bay Rays tune up in an area renowed for its sport fishing.

Doing the Grapefruit League circuit in a 2013 Airstream Interstate allows vacationers to bring along many of the comforts of home without stressing about overstuffed suitcases and hefty dining and lodging bills. And that means more money for souvenirs, side trips and baseball tickets.

The numbers are staggering. Estimates are that 50 percent of all first-time marriages end in divorce, 67 percent of second marriages end in divorce, and 74 percent of third marriages fail. Obviously, getting married a third-time is not a good idea!

Now here is my idea: Could Roadtreks save marriages? Think about it. You literally have a second residence sitting in your driveway, with a kitchen, bathroom and shower. When things get too tense with the spouse, instead of hanging around waiting to say something you’ll regret for the rest of your life (and you know eventually you will), you can head to your class b van until cooler heads prevail.

You probably won’t be there long, but even if you are, you have all the comforts of home. There is even an entertainment center with an optional flat screen TV. You can really spend hours in a Roadtrek for some quiet comfort.

I once knew a woman who, while preparing dinner, pulled a frozen pot roast from the crock pot and chucked it across the dining room at her husband! If they had had a Roadtrek, the incident could have been avoided as well as the knot on his head.

When I was married, my wife and I argued almost every night about what to watch – the really important ballgame (and aren’t they all important?) or her boring soap opera that she recorded while at work.  It’s an argument I lost almost every night.  With a Roadtrek, you can just give in, let her watch what she wants, and catch the game in comfort.

Roadtreks also help marital bliss when on the road. Instead of being stuck side by side for long trips, one can drive while the other plays video games, reads a book or listens to music. This means no more back seat driving and we all know how stressful that can be.

I realize when you all first started reading this,  you probably thought I was crazy.  Maybe now not so much though, eh?
