Road Trip

I want to coordinate a road trip, visiting 6 ball parks in August. Let's see if I can get a schedule together. I want to go to Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

Boston - vs Oakland August 2 & 3, TBD and 1:35 pm Bought
Philadelphia - Aug 5 vs Florida, 7:05 pm Bought
Baltimore - Aug 8 vs Texas, 7:05 pm Bought
Washington - Aug 12 vs New York Mets, 7:10 pm Bought
Pittsburgh - Aug 13 vs Cincinnati, 7:05 pm On sale March 8
Cleveland - Aug 14 vs Baltimore, 7:05 pm Bought

Due to the holiday, I would only need off August 1-15, 10 days. This schedule is also good as I don't have to hand around one place for to long and I get to skip through Pittsburgh in only 1 day!
Leave Toronto August 1, stay in Boston 1st, 2nd and 3rd, drive to Philadelphia, stay the 4th, 5th, 6th, drive to Baltimore, stay the 7th, 8th, 9th, drive to Washington, stay the 10th, 11th and 12th, drive to Pittsburgh, stay the 13th, drive to Cleveland, stay the 14th, 15th and 16th, drive to Toronto and home!

Boston Aug 1, 2 & 3 - http://www.bostonhostel.org/ $37/night, or for the same price you can get a 3 bed dorm at the University beside Fenway Park
Philadelphia 4, 5 & 6 - http://www.bankstreethostel.com/ $22/night, sweet!
Baltimore 7, 8 - http://www.baltimorehostel.org/ $25/night
Washington 9, 10, 11 & 12 - http://www.hiwashingtondc.org/ $28/night
Pittsburgh 13 - Pittsburgh has one hostel, it's closed. :( This Motel 6 is $34/night. Sweet!
Cleveland 14, 15 & 16 - Cleveland has one hostel, a mere 38 miles from downtown. :( This Motel 6 is $44/night. But again, 14 miles away.

I'd've thought you might want to budget some more time for Pittsburgh:

Also: I have a vague notion of what you might look for to stay at in Cleveland -- remind me when I see you.
