Game in Frisco

Hey fellow chasers, especially those in the Frisco area.  Since I'm about done with the Major/Minor league parks (6 minor league parks right now)  my next bucket list is to see the Twins at every MLB park.  I'm over halfway there.  Anyway, I'm flying out to Frisco to see them Friday June 8th, then heading right back to the airport to fly home.  Using miles so it should be fairly cheap.  Any tips would be helpful.  Is it CalTrain that goes to the park?  Does that leave the airport?  BART?  Any…See More

Hi everybody. Was wondering about the parking in Miami. On their website you can buy a parking pass for one of the garages with the word "reserved" behind it or not.

An addendum to my previous post. Should have mentioned I'll be driving, so parking must be taken into consideration. Don't mind leaving the car somewhere for four days, but should be factored in. Thanks again, Jim.

Hey fellow chasers, have a question for you, hoping you can help me out. Next July I'm heading East to catch the Staten Island and Brooklyn short season teams. Am very familiar with

NYC and the subway system, and of course the costs. What I'm hoping someone can help me out with is where to stay, reasonably inexpensive, and somewhat close to a subway station.

Wondering about staying in Jersey, but haven't yet explored that option, and getting over to NYC. Grateful for any tips you…

I am leaving (driving) from Dayton OH, picking up a friend in Chicago and then driving up to Madison to pick up another ballpark chaser.  Should be quite the trip, been looking forward to seeing Target Field since its open.  Never been to Mpls. area. What other sites are worth seeing, easiest way to get decent tickets, things to see or do around the ballpark. We are all in our mid 20's, keep that in mind! Thanks Jim
