Take a cruise with baseball greats

Some cruise company is offering cruises with various baseball greats this fall. Or in some cases near-greats, but they’re all better than you. They all take place between November and March. Here are the offerings:

  • A seven-night Western Caribbean cruise Ferguson Jenkins, Glenn Beckert, Frank Howard and Bill Russell;
  • A 10-night Western Caribbean cruise with Tommy Davis, Amos Otis, Jack Billingham and Dave Campbell;
  • A seven-night Western Caribbean with Ken Griffey, Sr., Jim Fregosi, Darold Knowles), “and another player to be named”;
  • A seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise with Vida Blue, Randy Hundley, Jessie Barfield, Cookie Rojas, “and another player to be named”; and
  • A seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise with Gorman Thomas, John Lieber, Tony Taylor and Ken Berry.

I’d probably pick one of the cruises with the “player to be named later” because, you know, mystery. That is, unless the last one is the Ken Berry from “F-Troop” and “Mama’s Family” as opposed to the former White Sox outfielder.

Set a course for adventure, your mind on a new romance.

    I would pick the one with Barfield and the PTBNL I would also turn to Cookie Rojas for his tips on sea sickness.

      As in “how to toss your cookies”?

    Are the misspelled names (ex: “Jessie Barfield,” “John Lieber,” etc.) your doing Craig, or the cruise company’s?

    I hope they’re the company’s fault and that Jesse Barfield throws 394-foot strike from the bow to the stern and hits the cruise director flush in the nuts as retaliation for using the girls’ spelling of his name.

      That’s a pretty small cruise liner…

    I will go with Randy Hundley to find out why his son stunk when he was with the Cubs.

    How about twenty minutes stuck in an elevator in Gary, Indiana with Slobbering Ozzie and a panoramic view of the rust belt?
