Road Scholar
Program #18452RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Hear the crack of the bat and see the world’s best players up close at four spring training games (weather permitting). Meet retired players and umpires, learn about the Negro League and delve into the history of baseball, its rules and its legends. Learn about and attend games of three storied teams who train in Florida: the Philadelphia Phillies, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Baltimore Orioles.


Highlights

• Enjoy four spring training ballgames (schedule released in December) featuring the Phillies, Pirates and O’s.
• Delve into the history of the old ballgame from the 19th century to today.
• “C’mon blue!” Learn about life calling balls and strikes from a retired MLB ump.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile per day. Stairs at ballparks.
