Terrible Photos of Ballparks from the Interstate: Volume I

Today, the author and his wife completed the first leg of a two-day journey in a U-Haul truck from the north of Michigan to an undisclosed location in New Hampshire that will serve as our new home.

Generating weblog content whilst driving a 17-foot truck presents some challenges. For all their virtues, wives are decidedly intolerant of husbands who attempt to perform internet work from within the confines of a driver’s seat. Fortunately, certain ballclubs have done everyone the total solid of constructing ballparks close enough to Interstate 90 so that absurd men with limited ambitions — like the present author, for example — can parlay that into writing of no consequence.

With that in mind, I present the following — which is to say, probably all the ballparks you can see from the stretch of I-90 between Toledo and Buffalo.

All Pro Freight Stadium
All Pro Freight Stadium is located in Avon, Ohio, and serves as home to the Lake Erie Crushers of the independent Frontier League. Here’s a terrible photo of it from the interstate:

Lake Erie

Progressive Field
Known formerly as Jacobs Field, Progressive Field is located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, and serves as home to the Cleveland Clevelanders of Major League Baseball. Here’s a terrible photo of it from the interstate:

    If I had to live in New Hampshire, I would not tell people its location either.

    Is it a coincidence that the Western world is on the brink of conflict with Russia as NotGraphs is coming to an end?

    I can’t wait to see US Cellular Field! I can probably help out with Target Field as well.

    New Hampshire sounds like a mighty fine place to hide out from disgruntled NotGraphs commenters.

    You know who drives cross-country without pulling over somewhere in Northern Ohio in order to bitch about their sore lower back and ask their wife to drive the truck? A MAN, CISTULLI, A GODDAMN MAN.

    The first photo, presumably taken while driving at exactly the speed limit, insinuated that you were a MAN who likes DANGER and gave me hope that #NotGraphsWouldBeKept, but then you went and let your WIFE drive the TRUCK.

    Dayn Perry once received analingus from a dwarf while driving a 1972 V-8 FORD (big block) without power steering, and you can’t blog while driving?

    Live Free Or Die, Cistulli.

    This is a topic that could be crowd sourced.

    Sort of like the running of this blog.

    If you truly loved us, Carson, like you said you did after our special night together, you’d consider this as an option.

    you can see the Wilmington Blue Rocks stadium in delaware and the Aberdeen Iron Brids stadium in Maryland if you take 95 south. but that’s probably out of the way.

    Angel Stadium is too pretty from the interstate. AT&T park has an overhead bridge view which is also too pretty. O Co is fairly dilapidated and has a fairly meh view from the interstate

    Fuck it I’ll throw in some Western New York sons a bitches. You can see Coca Cola Field in Buffalo off of the 190, you can see Frontier Field in Rochester off of the 490. If you can somehow see Dwyer Stadium in Batavia from the 90 you deserve a good butt fucking because I don’t believe you.

    You can see Camden Yards from I-95 though you have to get through a sea of purple from M&T Bank Stadium to do so. And also perhaps the largest trash incinerator on the interstate system.

    Next time I head down to Kentucky taking 75, I’ll try to get shots of Comerica without getting shot. Then I’ll get a terrible shot of Great American Ballpark which is conveniently blocked by Paul Brown Stadium. There’s also the Florence Freedom Frontier League stadium off 75 I can get a terrible shot of. (hooray for finishing a sentence with a preposition!)
