Baseball: The City of Brotherly Love and Beantown

As I mentioned, my journey to all the Major League Baseball cities will come to an end on Saturday, May 1 when we visit Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park. I know we have a few Humzooers living in Philadelphia. Do you know of any baseball-related points of interest around the city? I know the Athletics used to call Philadelphia home before they moved to Kansas City, then again to Oakland. Any old Phillies or A's stops around town?

After our stop in Philadelphia, we're headed to Boston to visit Fenway Park. I was there 10 years ago. Same question. Any Red Sox or old Boston Braves points of interest around town? I know that Boston has a memorial built upon the site of the first World Series game. Do our New England-based Humzooers have any suggestions?

Here's a link to a slide show video presentation that I made on Braves Field and the portions that currently still exist. The site is around a mile from Fenway Park, right on the Green Line trolley line. You get off at the stop by the Agganis Arena. His statue is shown on the video -- as a Boston University football player rather than a Red Sox first baseman.

Bob, thanks for sharing that link to your slide show. You're with the Boston Braves Historical Association? Very cool.
