West Coast Luxury Baseball Tour

Our 2014 season is really starting to come together. Glenn and I have been scouring the MLB schedules to find the best combinations of games and stadiums for our tour packages. We are really excited about our West Coast Tour in June. It features the Rangers and Red Sox on the road, and we were able to add Seattle on the last day of the tour for a "FULL" West Coast experience.  

We are offering the tour in condensed versions, too. You can choose the California Gold, Southern California, or Baseball on the Bay, if you want a shorter vacation.  

Here are the links to the tour pages for all of the West Coast Tours in June. This is a special Sneak Peek for the fans in our database. These pages are not available to the general public, so you will have to get to them through these links. Thanks for taking a look.

Oakland Coliseum - West Coast Baseball Tour Part VI

Posted by Glenn Dunlap on Mon, Jul 30, 2012 @ 10:45 AM

Oakland Coliseum, or O.co as it's referred to, is rarely on anyone's must see Coliseumlist unless you're either a diehard A's fan or visiting all 30 stadiums on your quest to complete your bucket list. 

Local fans will tell you that visiting the Coliseum before the addition of "Mount Davis" was much more enjoyable. They're referring to the offices, suites and seating all along the outfield fence and visible in this picture. It gets its name from former Raiders owner, Al Davis, who had this addition made for the football season.

The complaint is that the ginormous wall cuts off the view that was once enjoyed of the community and the rolling hills in the distance. I personally hadn't visited the ballpark prior to the remodel so can't speak from experience. 

I will say, though, that A's fans are great. They're not there for gimmicks or ulterior motives. It's about baseball. This made visiting the Coliseum fun even though I didn't have a dog in the hunt, so to speak. Everyone was into the game and having a great time. Maybe it's because they were thumping the Red Sox? Whatever the reason, our group had a great time in Oakland.

As part of the Oakland A's, he won three World Series Championships in 1972, 1973 and 1974. He appeared in six All Star Games and was the first pitcher to start an All Star game for both leagues.

The Mansfield, Louisiana native resides near San Francisco and actively promotes the game of baseball. You can see more of Blue's statistics on the MLB.com site.

We're very excited about the returning of Vida Blue as part of our Big League Player Experiences on our West Coast and Bay Area Tours.
