By the time October rolls around, baseball fans pretty much know if their favorite team is possibly a contender for the playoffs, for which of course, the final two teams standing will head to the fall classic known in the baseball world as the World Series. Of course, stalwart baseball fans know there are a few teams that seem to make post-season play an annual event, while some Cinderella stories sometimes prevail. Here are a few towns you can visit on your next camping trip that will most likely be all agog about the post-season:

Los Angeles: The Dodgers were the first team of the 2022 season to clinch a playoff spot, marking their 10th consecutive post-season effort. If you’re planning a camping trip to Soledad RV & Camping Resort, you’re in Dodger territory. If you’re looking to take in a game, Dodger Stadium is the place and tickets can be found at mlb.com/dodgers/tickets. Another option is to schedule a tour of the stadium, available on game day and non-game days. The tour lasts 90 minutes and is $25 for adults and $20 for children, and the stadium offers senior and military personnel discounts. For tour information, visit mlb.com/dodgers/tours. Other Los Angeles attractions include the Griffith Observatory, Santa Monica Pier, and the La Brea Tar Pits. BTW, you might want to keep Soledad in mind for future camping as the Dodgers are favored to win the World Series this year.

Cleveland: The Cleveland Guardians are headed to their sixteenth post-season appearance (although this will be the first time as the newly renamed Guardians). The team’s home games are held at Progressive Field, one of 10 MLB ballparks to use solar panels. Tours of the park are offered from May through September and cost $20 for adults, $18 for senior and military and $12 for children (children aged 2 and younger are free). Book a stay at Kenisee Lake RV Campground and you’re about an hour away from the ballpark. Other Cleveland attractions include the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort

Houston: Mid-September was lucky for the Houston Astros as they became the American League West Champion with a win over the Tampa Bay Rays on September 16. The team was founded in 1962 but did not win a World Series Championship until 2017. Book a stay at Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort if you plan on taking in a game or one of the many tours available at Minute Maid Park. One fun, and unique, feature of Minute Maid Park, which was built in 2000, is the Minute Maid Train, a 56-foot- long replica of an 1862 steam locomotive. It moves whenever an Astro hits a home run, when the Astros first take the field in the first inning and whenever the Astros win. Other Houston attractions include the Space Center Houston, beautiful Hermann Park, and the Houston Zoo. Similar to the Dodgers, according to Las Vegas odds, the Astros are favored to win it all if the Dodgers are somehow eliminated. 

Atlanta Braves Stadium – Atlanta, GA

Atlanta: The Braves have four World Series titles already and are heading to the post-season this year looking for Number Five. The Braves play their home games at Truist Park, which was opened in 2017, making it the second newest ballpark in the league (the Texas Rangers’ Globe Field opened in 2020). Tours are available daily and include highlights such as Monument Garden, Hank Aaron Terrace, and the Braves’ dugout. If you’re planning to camp at Pine Mountain RV Resort, you’re about an hour from Atlanta and all things Braves. Other nearby attractions include Calloway Gardens, the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola.
