Talk about a tough schedule.
Double-A Akron manager Tim Bogar’s club is currently on an 11-day road trip. At the end of those 11 days, Bogar will hop on a plane in Bowie, Md., and fly to San Francisco to participate in his second straight Futures Game.
After those two days, which turn into three with the travel back to the east coast, Bogar will fly to Norwich, Conn., for the Eastern League all-star game on July 11 before finally meeting up back with his team in Altoona, Pa.–for another four-game series on the road.
“I’m basically on a 20-day road trip right now,” Bogar said. “With all the fast food that’s likely to be involved I might wind up looking like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man before it’s over.
“But having the opportunity to go to the Futures Game is an honor any year, and going to any all-star game is always a lot of fun and a great opportunity. The travel this year is just a little haywire.”
