Travel Video of the Week: Transforming Sydney Cricket Ground into a baseball field

If you read my story this week from Sydney, Australia, you know that I was Down Under for Opening Day of the 2014 MLB season. The March 22nd game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks marked the first time ever that a regular season professional baseball game was hosted on the Australian continent—and it was held at the hallowed Sydney Cricket Ground. Sydney Cricket Ground, though, is not a baseball stadium, so its crew had to transform it into one. Led by Murray Cook, they did an impressive and timely job, as seen in the video above.

  1. I read few posts on this site and I conceive that your web site is very interesting and has got sets of excellent info.

  2. Sydney is NOT the capital of Australia – never has been and never will be! By the by, Canberra is our capital. I’m pleased that you enjoyed your trip though. Try the South Austrlaian wine country next time.

    • Thanks! I know. One of my editor’s put that together and I didn’t proof read it it. I’ve been to S.A. and loved it!

      Yep that was me, Andy, and I know better, especially after spending all of August exploring your brilliant country. Thanks for the catch, mate!
