There is nothing like joining 40 other fans from all around the country traveling to big league stadiums and talking baseball.

Broach Sports Tours has dedicated its entire schedule of 2012 Major League Baseball tours to the memory of longtime tour guide Stevette Mathis.

    Mathis died unexpectedly after a brief illness in January, leaving behind a legacy as being a wonderful lady and the ultimate baseball fan. In fact, she was named the Radio Shack “Extreme Baseball Fan” of 2003.

    A retired teacher from Gastonia, N.C., Stevette joined Broach Sports Tours as a tour guide after originally going on one of Broach’s baseball trips merely as a fan. It quickly became apparent to president Tom Broach that Mathis had the passion and personality to be a great host and a fabulous representative of the company.

    “Nobody was more passionate about baseball and having a great time at the ballpark than Stevette,” Broach said. “She loved baseball, she loved people, and she had an enthusiasm that rubbed off on every person on the tour. We miss her dearly.”

    Broach Sports Tours, based in Charlotte, N.C. has been an industry leader in sports and group travel packages since 1992.

    Broach is offering 27 various Major League Baseball packages this summer, visiting all 30 Major League ballparks.

    Trips range from weekend getaways to Atlanta, New York, Boston and Washington, to 12-day excursions on the East and West Coasts. Several East Coast tours include visits to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    The 12-day West Coast tour kicks off the summer season on June 12, running through June 23. The tour starts with two games in Seattle, then continues on to San Francisco, Oakland, the Los Angeles Dodgers (two games), Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, San Diego and Phoenix (two games plus a trip to the Grand Canyon).

    Broach recently announced the purchase of several new 56-seat state-of-the-art Broach Coach motorcoaches to add to its fleet.
    “For a die-hard baseball fan, our tours offer the best vacation you could ever experience,” Broach said. “There is nothing like joining 40 other fans from all around the country traveling to big league stadiums and talking baseball. Our new motorcoaches even include DirecTV so we can watch Baseball Tonight riding to our hotel after the game.”
