Hey Chuck,

Congratulations on publishing your book. 

We just ordered my copy of your book and we can't wait to read it!

Roberto, Judy and Sofia

Awesome Paul, this is going to be huge, we have many MLB reps that are interested in reviewing it and interviews will follow after wards..

Martin, the latest on Oakland is shown on the link below:

This was five days ago. Without a move out of Oakland, there is little hope.

I am looking forward to the Marlins new Ballpark in 2012, and going to neutral sites is a good idea. Thanks for the tip!

Best regards,

Emilio

Congrats Emilio!  I know what you mean, once you get to 30, it's hard to not have something to chase!  I try to keep my eyes open for neutral site games.  Disney World, Puerto Rico, etc...  They just can't make these stadiums quick enough!  Is Oakland still set for 2014?

Thanks Roberto! I agree. I am officially still 30/33. However, I would love to count special events such as Playoff Games, World Series, All Star Games. Even though those games occur at ballparks that I have already been to, there is always an excitement about a World Series or Playoff Game that makes it special.

Best regards,

Emilio

Emilio,

Like you, I used to double (quintuple counted for Sun Life Stadium) count ballparks to include all name changes, but it was my wife that stated, its all the same ballpark. From that day forward I only count a ballpark once, no matter the number of name changes.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Roberto

As of May 9, 2011, I am at 30/33.  Of course, looking forward to the new Marlins Ballpark in April 2012.  Would you also count ballpark, if they change their names as well? or is that too much?  Not included in my numbers are the likes of the multiple Marlins Ballpark name changes, and the Giants as well.

Welcome to any new members-I see Martyn30/46 is a new member.  The good news is that my book will be coming out in early spring and will feature many new additions to Craig's awesome ballpark chaser guides.  My expertise is more in the area of car rentals-airport flights and taking advantage of loopholes in all of those traveling industries.

As for the parks themselves, there are definitely people who have more knowledge on any specific park-but the book has a nice close-up look at each of the thirty parks to enhance your visits.

There is going to be a big media tour with the release of this book and it is my hope to bring awareness to the world-about us 'ballpark chasers'-as we are a rare sports fan.  Make sure you tell all of your friends that love baseball chasing too.

The book is going to be called-'The Fastest 30 Ballgames-A World Record Holder's Story.'  Not only does it chronice the 2 summers I chased the world record, but it is filled with stadium descriptions, park nuances, travel tips, lots of links to help you in your road trips, but there are fellow chaser profiles from right here at BP chasers.  Craig Landgren and Ken Lee are my co-authors.  The book will be available on E-books at Amazon& Barnes and Noble. I will keep you up to date as the book goes live..

 

Chuck
