Trip to the Parks, 2012 Edition

As some of you guys know, Mrs. Rogue and I take a trip every year to check out a few of the other ballparks around the country. Trying to do all of them at once, while awesome, would be impractical for us. So we're settling for anywhere from 2-4 per trip. At least that way we'll make progress.

Well, our next one is around the corner; we leave in just under a couple weeks and I thought I'd ask if anyone has any "Must-See" recommendations at our destinations. We're also wondering if any McCoven will be around at any of these places.

The trip is as follows:

6/30: Arrive in Chicago late, probably grab Gino's East Pizza for dinner after checking in at the hotel (good thing they're open late)

7/1: Astros @ Cubs (to make up for last year's SF@ CHI game being rained out), and then immediately afterward, departing for Detroit

7/2: Twins @ Tigers

7/3: Drive to Cleveland and check out the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, then see Angels @ Indians

7/4: Drive to Pittsburgh just in time for the 3 Rivers Regatta & 4th of July Celebration

7/5: Contribute to the Pittsburgh tourism industry

7/6: Giants @ Pirates (If they don't skip Timmy's start, we draw Zito)

7/7: Repeat of 7/5 and maybe 7/6 if circumstances allow

7/8: Back to the Bay Area (and, sadly, reality)

So, anything we absolutely can't miss in any of these places? And, is anybody going to be at any of these games? You can see our schedule is pretty tight at times, but we're certainly interested in hearing what other people think of these places and what they have to offer.
