    I’m retired from baseball fandom as of Sept. 2019. But as I’ve posted elsewhere I’m hitting the Predators regular season finale next month and I imagine some games for the local USL club are in my future. But I’ve also vowed to be less of a slave to the sports calendar on the other side of this.

    Exactly, there's no guarantee we will even see the Jays playing in Toronto this season. Guess there will be no Inter County season either, huh, Elliotte?

    Unless things go completely off the rails, I’m planning on grabbing a few game at the ballpark in late July/August. Really missed it last year.

    Definitely plan to get to Coors Field in the coming weeks.

    I will go to as many as I can, and I always liked to distance at the ballpark anyway.

    I have been trying to get tickets to my new hometown team the Coastal Carolina Chanticleer but they have limited seating and I keep missing the chance to get tickets on line. I just went to the site to check the correct spelling and I see they are stopping for a week due to covid protocol.

    Also looking forward to seeing the Myrtle Beach Pelicans this year. They are a Cubs affiliate. Hope to see the Red Sox farm teams, hoping they play each other. I haven't checked yet as they are delayed.

    I haven't been to a game since I left the biz, and haven't gone as a paying fan since 2016. I miss going, but I also don't want to deal with the hassle. I'm fully vaccinated, so there probably won't be any hassle per se, but it won't be the same as before. There's a lot going on in my life with a toddler in the house and another one on the way, if I'm not going to have a good time like before, not sure it's worth it. That said, knowing my luck, the first game I'll go to will last 16 innings and I'll stay because I refuse to leave a game early if I've paid for the ticket.

    I do want to go to Camden Yards at some point, but I'd rather wait until Maryland opens up a bit more. Won't be the same without a couple of Natty Bohs at Pickles pregame.
