Nats Headed to Cleveland, Are you?

We're making the trip to Cleveland for the three game series of interleague play.  Sunday will be Stephen Strasburg's road debut and I'm sure that it will be very exciting there too. I have friends in the Cleveland area that aren't even baseball fans that are going on Sunday just to see what "Strasmania" is all about.

The Cleveland Indians are now managed by the Washington Nationals former manager, Manny Acta.  Austin Kearns is playing left field and Anderson Hernandez was just called up last week so it will be like old home week in Cleveland.

Here are a few old pictures from our last trip to Cleveland for a ballgame (July 2006) and some promotion information for this weekend.

Our last trip to Cleveland for baseball was on July 9, 2006.  Ronnie Belliard and Aaron Boone were with the Indians then. Jake Westbrook pitched and that is who is pitching against the Nationals on Friday, June 11, 2010.
