The Commuter Rail Series
The Philadelphia Phillies and the NY Yankees are going to play some winter baseball starting this week. And for the first time since 1950 the Phillies will travel to NYC by train, though Amtrak is a popular choice for a lot of northeast corridor sports travel. While they made the choice because it is much faster and easier than flying or busing the same route, the reception the Phils got on the sidewalk suggests they may stick with the relative seclusion of airports in the future.
