WHY IT RATES: Travel agents and advisors working with clients who love baseball should be selling them on the 2019 trips offered by Sports Travel and Tours.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
It may be football and hockey season now, but it’s already time to start thinking about the 2019 baseball season because Sports Travel and Tours, a sports travel agency, developed and announced our line-up of adventures!
Featuring classics like Windy City Plus and Central Express, Sports Travel and Tours’ season next year will also hold some newer trip options such as Ocean, Desert, Mountains and a Major-Minor Northeast trip that will make a stop at their offices in Hatfield, Massachusetts.
There are 18 travel packages in total next year, and they begin on June 6, 2019, and end with a trip that begins August 10, 2019. These treks will take baseball fans across the country for games, stadium tours, and sightseeing.
Among the classic trips back by popular demand are the East Coast Classic, which includes four stadium tours and city tours of Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C. View photographs, documents, and artifacts at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, check out the historic Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and get up close to the action at six different games.
As always, Sports Travel and Tours is eager to help travelers make it to the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony on July 21, 2019, as well as all the festivities that come with it, like the Parade of Legends through Cooperstown, New York, and the Legends of the Game Roundtable at Doubleday Field. The Induction Plus and Eastern Loop tour packages are your ticket there!
The ever-popular Major Minor trip is back, too, but after a year spent exploring the West Coast, it’s coming to the Northeast, featuring stops in all six New England states to see six minor league games and one major league game at Fenway Stadium. New features include a visit to the elegant Newport Mansions, and a barbecue at Sports Travel and Tours’ home base in Hatfield, giving travelers a chance to put faces to the names and voices they’ve heard over the phone.
A brand new trip that’s on the roster is Ocean, Desert, Mountains, which centers on Southern California cities along with Phoenix and Denver. Tour Dodger Stadium, baseball’s third-oldest stadium and one of the game’s most beautiful, plus explore San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter and enjoy six games.
