Several months ago, I had started to slowly think about what it would be like to pull a Back to the Future. Basically hop into the Delorean and go off into some place in the past.
With this thought in mind, I was thinking more about baseball.
What teams would I want to see most? What stadiums would I want to visit? What players would I want to see?
Then I let it drift off some.
Recently, I got to thinking about this again and want to revisit it. But, I’m going to take it a little more in-depth, instead of just listing a few things. This is going to take some research on my side of things, but I’m looking forward to that aspect of things.
Originally, my plan was to talk about 10 teams I’d like to see, 10 stadiums I would have liked to have watched a game at, and 10 players I’d like to have watched. The plan was a single blog post for each one – so 30 posts in all.
Then I realized that would become a tad redundant when all said and done.
So, how to be able to cover what I want to do, yet still keep it short enough so it doesn’t become drawn out? I figured I’d do a happy medium in that I’ll split each category into two posts (so six total) doing 10-6, then 5-1 of each category.
The basic reason behind this isn’t just to announce it, but to also have something I can look back on and know what my thought process was!
So, I will be breaking it down like so:
- 10 Players I’d like to have watches – two posts
- 10 Teams I’d liked to have seen – two posts
- 10 Stadiums I’d liked to have seen a game in – two posts
Now, there might be some overlap with these lists. For example, Player A might be on Team C or something like that. But with some of the greatest players in history playing for some of the greatest teams, it’s tough not to have that overlap.
Stadiums will likely be all over the place.
I am not sure how long this will take me, but my plan is to have all of them done before I start posting anything and then maybe doing it weekly for six weeks. If I get some time to do some research, it will be faster. If not, it might take me a few months.
We’ll see how it goes.
But until then, feel free to drop a comment or two about some of your favorite historical teams/stadiums/players. My lists are not concrete by any means, so I’m always willing to look at others from baseball history!
