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..

Hey all,

Love the site!

So I've run out of ballparks, and am looking to add neutral site parks while I wait for Miami and Oakland to open.  Does anyone have any good tips on finding out about neutral site games?

 

I'm hoping to add Hiram Bithorn in 2011 if the Marlins go back to San Juan.  I've never had a chance to catch any of the games down there.

 

Has anyone heard anything more about the Marlins home series v. the Mariners June 24-26 being moved elsewhere due to U2 concert in Miami?

 

Thanks in advance for any advice you might have!


Cheers,
Martyn

I think despite not being to the newer ballparks as long as you have been to the city for a game before you can almost sense what the crowd will still be like at the new ballparks. The parks I have been to that no longer exist are -SHEA STADIUM/OLD YANKEE STADIUM/THE METRODOME AND OLYMPIC STADIUM. I think Football would be okay to visit all the stadiums as they are all different but that is harder to do with games only being on Sundays mostly. Baseball lends itself to this better than the other sports also because of ticket prices and the weather is generally better across the board becuase it is during summertime.

Chuck, this is great. We (Sofia, her mom and me) did all current parks last summer. Now we need to get to Target field. Without the family I have hit 6 ballparks that no longer exist: Memorial Stadium, old Yankee Stadium, Shea, RFK, Candlestick, and old Busch Stadium. And the stadium the Marlins play in with the 10 or so different names! ;)

I've been to all of the Major League cities having seen games in 41 different stadiums. Alas, the opening of Target Field this year has once again left me one short of the active 30. I hoped to close it out this year but was unable to schedule a trip. In the words of all Mets fans, "wait until next year". I look forward to finish (again) in time to have to return to Florida in 2012.

For good measures, I have 12 minor league (so far) and 7 assorted others (unaffiliated leagues, Doubleday Field, Nagoya Dome, etc) to add as well.

That field is so much better then the METRODOME. As hardcore fans like we all are--baseball is better outdoors--although I do like the modern parks that have the retractable roofs like Miller and Safeco to protect against the elements but it would have cost $150million to the STATE of MN and that is a lot of dough for maybe a handful of rainouts
