Editor's note: Each Wednesday from April 11 to May 23, NESN.com will highlight some of the cities the Red Sox visit on road trips this season. This week, we spotlight Baltimore and New York, where the Red Sox will play from Sept. 28 to Oct. 3. This will be the last road trip of the season for Boston.
In baseball's long regular season, anything can happen over the span of 162 games. Upsetting (or exciting) early-season runs can be long forgotten by the time September rolls around.
Many of the Red Sox' early-season losses (including one to the Yankees on Fenway's 100th anniversary) may be avenged by the time the leaves are changing colors. Of course, looking ahead to Boston's last road trip of the season means looking at opportunities for that very revenge.
From Sept. 28 to Oct. 3, the Red Sox will take a tour through Baltimore and New York, facing their division rival Orioles and Yankees. Boston may have its chance at revenge, but what about the fans? What is Red Sox Nation supposed to do when not taking in a game at Camden Yards or Yankee Stadium?
Well, as division rivals since the birth of the AL East in 1969, fans have had plenty of time to take in the various sites around Baltimore and the Big Apple. But as the Red Sox look for revenge, fans can use their spare time to revisit old favorites and hopefully find new gems in these cities.
In order to help the Boston faithful tour the cities of Red Sox foes, we put together a handy guide of the must-see attractions in Baltimore and New York. As the Sox take their last regular season road trip, be sure to catch some of our favorite sites along the way.
