Leitch: 30 Stadiums in 30 Days

Given unlimited money I’d not only do this but drag other people along with me. I’d definitely just use a private jet, though.

Thursday, April 10: Minnesota. Red-eye! It’s impressive it has taken us this long to hit a red-eye flight. The next couple of days are going to be exhausting, so hang in with us. Because there are again no Western games today, we’re going to zip over to the Twin Cities real fast for an afternoon game, then zip right back out. If you’ve made it this far, you know you don’t need to sleep or shower. The cold of Target Field will wake you up anyway.

11 p.m. TAXI: Cab from Safeco Field to Seattle airport $30.
12:50 a.m. FLIGHT: Delta from Seattle to Minneapolis, $169.
6 a.m. TAXI: Cab from Minneapolis airport to Target Field. $34.
1:10 p.m. GAME: Oakland A’s at Minnesota Twins, 212 Home Plate Terrace, $40.
6:19 p.m. FLIGHT: Frontier Airlines, Minneapolis to San Diego (via Denver), $169
10:15 p.m. TAXI: Cab from San Diego airport to Petco Park. $20.

Friday, April 11: San Diego. Yes, that’s right: You just went from a game to an airport to a game to another airport without ever stopping at a hotel to sleep. You’re a gamer. Here’s your chance to get some sleep, though. You powered through what was essentially a 36-hour day in three different time zones, and once you check into the hotel by Petco Park, you can pass out until first pitch. You’ve earned it.

Midnight. HOTEL: Hotel Indigo Gaslamp, $143.
7:10 p.m. GAME: Detroit Tigers at San Diego Padres, Bleachers, $20.
11 p.m.: HOTEL: Hotel Indigo Gaslamp, $143.
