Preparing for Hibernation (& Waiting for the 2012 Baseball Tours)

October 21, 2011 - You’ve probably all heard the Rogers Hornsby quote, "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."

The World Series can be such an exciting end to the baseball season, unless you think like Mr. Hornsby.  The fact about the World Series is the first team to win four games officially brings the end the baseball season.  Does that make your heart ache the way it does mine? 

Busch Stadium, Home of the St. Louis CardinalsWhile I’ll continue to root for my favored champion for the next several days, deep down I’ll be preparing my mind for what is to come...the saddest day of the year for a baseball fan. Then, like Mr. Hornsby, I'll spend the winter waiting for spring, dreaming about baseball. And planning which stadiums I'll visit with Big League Tours!

What an amazing finish to the 2011 MLB IMG 3009 resized 600season! One of the most improbable scenarios played out in front of our eyes. The Cardinals were 10.5 games back in September and came all the way back to capture the World Series title for the 11th time in franchise history. Click here to see the box score and video wrap up on MLB.com.

One thing that we have found on our baseball tours, St. Louis is a baseball town - the team, stadium and fans are all top notch. It's always a favorite stop for our travelers on their baseball vacation packages.

As we put together our 2012 baseball tour packages, we'll be looking to head to St. Louis on a Midwestern tour. If you want to visit Busch Stadium or see the Cardinals on the road, sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know the details of our tours!
