Pirates Walk Off Homer has the Cubs Walking the Plank

Since the latest game that I attended was so exciting, I wanted to share my latest post on my blog coryattheballpark:

PNC Park in Pittsburgh, which opened in 2001, is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful ballparks…

Angels Singing in the Rain - Thanks to a Veteran Star and a Rising Phenom

I’ve been going to ballparks since the age of 4 when I rounded the bases with Melvin Mora’s quintuplets after the game at the Orioles’ old Spring Training facility in Fort Lauderdale in 2005. That experience ignited my passion to visit as many ballparks as possible: 21 so far.

In 2011 I started the blog coryattheballpark to charter my impressions as my Dad…

Yard Goats & PawSox

Has anyone been to the new Dunkin' Donuts Park in Hartford?  I went last week and it is gorgeous, in my top-20.  Also took in a game in wonderful McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, which is still one of the top places (top-10?) to see a game; after 75 years it holds up better than most parks, though the rumors strongly suggest the team might move. If so, hopefully another team can make use of this wonderful facility - tearing it down would be a sin. BTW, caught parts of 4 games in the Cape Cod…

Updated Ballpark List

I updated my active ballparks list and added a fun little map at the bottom. I may be able to make a trip to Great Falls in a couple of weeks, but I'm likely done chasing for the summer. http://starspangledcampers.com/2018/07/16/jeffs-ballpark-list/

Ultimate guide to AT&T Park

Few ballparks are more picturesque than San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Perched on the corner of the city at the point where South Beach meets Mission Bay, since its opening in 2000, the ballpark has been celebrated as one of the most beautiful in MLB.

 

Eighteen years ago, the Giants’ first series at their new ground was fittingly against the old enemy, the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers were also their last opponents in the final games played at their previous home of…

Monterrey!

Having missed seeing a game in Monterrey, Mexico, when MLB last played there in 1999, I was determined not to make up for that this time around.  I contacted the nominal home team, the San Diego Padres, who were very kind and helpful in my obtaining a ticket.…

Little Cubs Field - Freeport, Illinois

If you are ever in the Freeport, Illinois area make sure to stop by and take in Little Cubs Field, a scale version of Wrigley Field used for youth baseball games.

It is open to the public so you can also participate in some epic Wiffle Ball action.  I felt 10 years old again!  Check out some photos here: …

Chase Field Accommodation Recommendation

Just got finished with Chase Field. 

I ended up staying in the Arts District midtown area at the Wyndham Garden Midtown on North Second Street. Although the hotel itself is very dated and needs a bit of a face-lift, the people were nice and very helpful. The rooms are satisfactory. Nothing special. Lower end on the pride too. I paid about $100 per night.

However, the reason I recommend this hotel, and more specifically this area near Central Avenue is the ease of use of the…

Minor League Parks

Hey everybody, I am new to this website and was curious about the passport program. Do the minor league stadiums have passport stamp locations within them like the MLB teams do? Thanks for the feedback and I'm excited to be a part of the group!

Heading to Great American Ballpark

My group and I will be heading to Cincinnati this summer and we will be staying near the ballpark. I'm wondering if the easiest/cheapest way from the airport  to downtown would be an Uber or taxi seeing as how there will be seven of us. Also we usually walk to most places around the area so I'm looking for some good sport bars or restaurants close by, and does anyone know  if the places I've seen on the Kentucky side are accessible by walking? Thanks in advance.

Rain Delays, Slug Fests, and Steaks at Ted's - Sun Trust Park, Atlanta, GA, 2017

We returned to Atlanta to see a Braves game this past summer in the inaugural season of Sun Trust Park, keeping alive a quest among four friends to visit every major league ballpark.  If they built it, we would come.

What counts?

Do you have qualifications for what constitutes as "visiting a ballpark"? I saw a college football game at Yankee Stadium in 2010 (ND vs. Army). I counted this with the reasoning being that it was a major sporting event, was a few hours long and had a huge crowd. Just curious what others' thoughts are on this subject.

Hitting the Road with my Dad

My dad and I are taking a baseball road trip Wed-Sat of this week, I can't wait.  It was actually about 5 years ago that my dad asked me if I was going to try to go to all of the MLB stadiums at some point.  I had always liked going to different stadiums when I could but I had never made a point of traveling just to see stadiums or thought of seeing all 30 as a goal.  At the time, I had seen I believe 5 of the current stadiums.

So, we'll be starting in Chicago to see the Dodgers play…
