Around the Majors in 60 Days: Stealing Home with Navin Vaswani
By Ian Hunter
Visiting each of Major League Baseball's 30 ballparks are one of the things that rank at the top of baseball fans Bucket Lists and certainly constitutes as being the "baseball road trip of a lifetime".
Not only did this man scratch that off his Bucket List, but he did it in less than 60 days. I am of course talking about Navin Vaswani of Sports and the City, but you probably know him as one of the friendliest people in the blogosphere as "eyebleaf".
A few months ago, Navin was doing some soul-searching in his homeland and quickly realized he wanted to fulfill the dream that most baseball fans have envisioned, but never have been able to accomplish.
Navin teamed up with the Globe and Mail and set out on the Baseball Road Trip of the Lifetime known as "Stealing Home".
I'm sure you've been following along as he experienced the highs of the pinnacle of baseball's finest ballparks, to the lowest lows when it comes to stadiums that are better suited being demolished.
I was very fortunate to get to talk to Navin about his journey through all 30 MLB ballparks, and what it meant to him. Take a listen to the interview below:
Let me reiterate as I said in the podcast, this baseball adventure couldn't have happened to a better person.
Navin exemplifies what blogging for your home team is all about, and you won't find anybody who's a better beacon for the Toronto Blue Jays (or sports in Toronto in general for that matter) than him.
