Our favorite way to check off our bucket list isn’t always where tohitting a variety of sports in one city but rather the old fashioned way. Getting in the car and driving down that interstate to the next stadium on your list.

While many of you have aspirations of visiting all the MLB parks there are, these 2017 road trips are sure to help you accomplish that sooner than later. Take a look at our top 4 picks from this year’s schedule to see 4, 5, or even 6 games in a week.

#1 Leading Off

The first and earliest trip on the schedule takes us to I-95 and the East Coast for an AL/NL East fans dream. Six games in six days is well within reason with no game being more than a two hour drive north. Each game in this pick 6 is an in division matchup with my personal favorite O’s vs. Yanks.
