Ryan- You have picked four of the top stadiums in the Major League Baseball in my opinion. My two favorite stadiums in the game are PNC Park in Pittsburgh and Target Field in Minnesota. Camden Yards remains one of the more scenic parks in baseball and while Kaufman Stadium has lost some of its charm after the renovation, it remains one to visit. To answer your question, I would probably opt for the Pittsburgh/Baltimore trip in May.
Matthew- Tough question to answer in a small space, but briefly here is my path. I attended Michigan State and studied broadcasting. I was also very involved in campus radio and had an opportunity to hone my skills by calling Spartan baseball, basketball and hockey at MSU. After graduating, I worked in several different towns including Peoria, IL, Davenport, IA and Tucson, AZ before I landed my first big league job with the Angels in 1995.
Rhett- The Tigers have some options heading into spring training. Bruce Rondon will most likely get the first shot depending what happens in spring training. The Tigers may also deal for a candidate if they feel Rondon is not ready. In any event, you can probably forget about Jose Valverde returning. His post season implosion signaled the end of his tenure in Detroit.
