LMT Stop #2: Savannah, GA

Excellent Adventure Day # 38

Cardinals Don’t Swim

Mid May in Middle Georgia is usually already high summer and 1991 was no exception so it was hot and humid with thundershowers as we drove from Macon over to Savannah along Interstate-16. When we got to Grayson Stadium it looked like a perfect night for baseball but when we walked into the office the team told us that night’s game against the Columbia Mets had been postponed and when we walked into the stadium we could see why. It was blue sky above but the outfield was under water. You’ll hear more about it in the video.

…”Give me Just a Little More Time

There aren’t many things to regret about our magical 1991 season but I do wish we had a chance to see more of each town we visited. Quite often the only glimpse of the surrounding area was from our seats. I hope to go back some day and once tourist sites are safely reopened here are a few sites I’d check out if I had a whole day or better yet a week!

Until We Meet Again

Who knows how long it will be until we can collectively be taken out to the ballgame again but in the meantime here are a few links in this community where you can do some good, find some important content and help us all get to the other side of this difficult season.

Low Mileage Tour Stop #2

Excellent Adventure: Day 38

This episode of the Low Mileage Tour on 435 Voices includes the second part of my interview with baseball historian and sportswriter Rob Grubbs. This time we’re talking about the second of two stops we made in historic Georgia ballparks, this one, unfortunately, washed out by rain – we’re visiting about Grayson Stadium in lovely Savannah.

We learn about one of Rob’s favorite baseball memories as a kid, the differences between Luther Williams Field and Grayson Stadium and Savannah’s colonial roots. Myron Noodleman even shows up.
