Summer baseball and Abe Lincoln

For Cleveland Indians baseball fans this summer’s schedule offers up a inter league special. The north coast of Ohio boys’ of summer travel to Chicago’s Wrigley Field for the 1st time and play the beloved Cubs Jun 19th, 20th and 21st. It’s going to be daytime baseball at its best. You cannot beat the festive ballpark atmosphere complete with its ivy covered walls and pre and post game activities in the eclectic neighborhood termed Wrigleyville that surrounds the field.

My drive to the Windy City is going to be routed via Kentucky, southern Indiana and then Illinois.

Intermediate stops in the Bluegrass will be at the Mary Todd Lincoln house in Louisville, KY then over to Hodgenville KY for a visit to Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace and boyhood home (,

From here the plan is to travel north cross the mighty Ohio and overnight in Spencer County, Indiana ( another location rich in early Lincoln history.

I've got some research to do on my lodging so I'll report back when this task is completed.

Happy travels!
