MLB Opening Weekend Trip Planned


When winter is over, rental car agencies have a surplus of vehicles in Florida which need to be driven to other locations. Rather than pay drivers to do so, they offer one-way deals to paying customers, sometimes as cheap as $6 a day. In the past, you would have to drive the car to the northeast, but this year the southeast is also an acceptable drop-off destination. Thus a four-day rental from Tampa to Atlanta is only $50 (damn those airport taxes, which more than double the cost). And wouldn't you know it? The Blue Jays open in Tampa on April 3 and the Nationals open in Atlanta on April 4. To make the trip worthwhile, I'll be seeing some college baseball and Lightning hockey NASL as well.

The full schedule is here:
Fri, Apr 1 Texas A&M Aggies at Florida Gators (NCAA Baseball, SEC) 7:00
Sat, Apr 2 The Citadel Bulldogs at Stetson Hatters (NCAA Baseball) 12:00
Sat, Apr 2 New Jersey Devils at Tampa Bay Lightning 7:00
Sat, Apr 2 Indy Eleven at Tampa Bay Rowdies 7:30
Sun, Apr 3 Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays (Home Opener) 4:05
Mon, Apr 4 Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves (Home Opener) 4:10
As always, updates will be posted here when I get around to it, so check back once in a while.

Best,

Sean
