No other sport so tickles the national fancy — and stimulates all a red-blooded American’s senses — as baseball. The crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the aroma of roasting peanuts and yes, the crunch of Cracker Jacks, are about as all-American as you can get.
On these Steamboating Baseball Vacations, you’ll take a glimpse into the dugout and get the inside story on some of the sport’s greatest plays and players from special onboard guests who were on the field when the big games took place.
Meet baseball champions including Ron Blomberg, baseball’s first designated hitter, called “the Jewish Mickey Mantle,” and Art Shamsky, who set baseball history when he smacked in four home runs in four consecutive at-bats. Also on-board will be professional baseball umpire Al Clark, Former Associated Press newsman Dan Schlossberg and Former New York Yankees lefty pitcher Fritz Peterson.
On a Steamboating Baseball Vacation, legends of America’s national sport bring the game to life aboard the grand American Queen. Batter up and join us on the 2014 Baseball Legends Cruise!
