On the Beat with Drayton McLane

Recently, I spent some time in Houston, on the annual baseball trip Scott, Matt and I take.  Once again, Steve Grande, Media Relations Manager, and the Houston Astros organization were extremely kind to Global Traveler and us.
We scored a first for Global Traveler and Johngy's Beat by talking to an owner of a major sports team.  Early during batting practice, Astros owner Drayton McLane came over to us and gave us a big Texas greeting and talked a little baseball and travel.  He promised to come back later to talk to us on video.
Although he was very busy, McLane kept his promise and gave us a quick answer about his favorite cities.  I like his reasoning for why he picked certain cities.  It's simple and logical!
This past Wednesday, my online piece about this Houston experience for Global Traveler ran.  To check out Global Traveler's blogs and to read "My Favorite Ballpark", click here.
Thanks again to the Astros and to McLane for all of their hospitality.
