March 11, 2009 - Our East Coast 2 Tour, which runs over the first weekend in June of 2009, begins in New York City for a Friday night Yankees game at New Yankee Stadium. (I can't wait to get back to Manhattan or to get out to the new stadium.) We'll catch the new division rivals Rays taking on the Yankees.
The next day we'll travel by a luxury motorcoach to Boston for a private tour
of Fenway Park, an afternoon to hang out on Yawkey Way, and then take in the Red Sox game. Who else is in town but Josh Hamilton and the Texas Rangers. I can't help but wonder if some of his home run blasts in the All Star Game last year would have cleared the red seat in right field at Fenway? Maybe we'll get to see him do it in person?!
Joining us on this MLB tour is pitching ace, John Tudor, who was drafted by the Boston Red Sox and began his career in Boston. His most notable season was in 1985 when he started 1-7 and then went on a tear of 20-1 to finish the season. John also recorded 10 complete game shutouts that season, a record that hadn't been touched since 1975 when Jim Palmer reached the same peak.
Tudor was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1988 when they won the World Series against the Oakland Athletics. He finished his career with a 117-72 record, 988 strikeouts and a 3.12 ERA.
