Chevrolet elected to give a group of writers and fans a unique opportunity to head out on a baseball road trip, entirely on their dime. They reached out to us here at FanSided about the opportunity – offering up tickets, accommodations, gas, and the use of a brand new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze to get from one park to the next – so it seemed like a no-brainer to open the opportunity up to the talented group of MLB writers here at the network.
Chris Greene – one of our Co-editors at Redbird Rants, our St. Louis Cardinals team site – jumped at the opportunity and will be chronicling his adventures for us here, at Call to the Pen. Here’s the first of Chris’ installments, with more to come.
Hello! Most of you probably don’t know me (unless you swing by Redbird Rants periodically), but I am going to be covering some different teams for a couple of games. My name is Chris Greene, and I am one of the co-editors for the St. Louis Cardinals blog, Redbird Rants.
Chevrolet recently contacted Fansided and offered its baseball writers a trip to cover a few games around the country. They wanted to send us to some games, lend us a brand new 2014 Chevy Cruze, and have us do some writing about the sports and the car. So I am getting shipped to Texas to cover baseball games courtesy of Chevrolet. As you can imagine, even as a Cardinals fan, I am very grateful.
Here are the games that I will be attending:
September 27, 8:10p.m. EST – New York Yankees at Houston Astros
September 29, 3:05p.m. EST – Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers
As I go to the games, you’ll be able to follow my posts right here at Fansided! I plan to talk about the games, the car, the cities, perhaps a restaurant or two, and anything else that pops into my head.
If you want me to look at anything specific (watch a particular player and give you my thoughts, visit a certain restaurant and tell you what I think, etc.) or have any advice as to where I should go, what I should do, or where I should eat, feel free to leave a comment!
Additionally, I encourage you all to follow me on twitter (@Ovadia116). I’ll be putting up my thoughts, ideas, feelings, and (of course) pictures from all of my experiences. You can also ask questions or share ideas with me there. I’ll do my best to keep up with you all.
Anyway, I’m off to pack! You’ll be hearing from me over the course of my trip. Feel free to stay in touch and share your thoughts and ideas.
