Summer is finally here, and it's time to engage in two great American traditions of the season: hitting the road and going out to the ballpark.
ESPN SportsTravel has put together 10 sample road tours across the country which visit some of the best ballparks in both the majors and the minors, plus a few special baseball stops along the way, such as the Hall of Fame and the Field of Dreams movie site.
Look for dates for these or any other major or minor league road trip you'd like to take with our Baseball Road Trip Planner*, which allows you to compare and sort schedules for teams you choose. Enjoy.
