Can't believe you drive 2.5 hours for a game and then home. If it is more than 1.5 hours for me I'm staying the night. I haven't really adjusted my thinking though to the ridiculous one game a day mindset.
Haven't done it often yet, but the we are doing it this week. For example game is in about an hour. Staying in NJ until same tomorrow is a PITA. Also allows son to get his lifting in, etc. Probably close to a 2 hour drive.
We did PBR NYS games in a day, 4 hour drive there and back to face 10 batters. Was worth it, and probably should have stayed but didn't mind the drive.
Attending PBR Future Games next week in western PA as a PO. Will likely stay the night.
