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…

Texas ballpark trip

I'm heading out to stadiums #20 and 21 for this year.  Going to watch the Astros then Rangers.  Any "absolute have to do's"?  For a family?

Rust Belt

I just completed a trip to the Rust Belt with my brother for stadiums #5-#8. We thought the trip was going to be our worst one, but we were pleasantly surprised. Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are all very nice cities.

We found the best BBQ chicken we've ever had at Red Smoke BBQ in Detroit's Greektown. It was moist, well seasoned, and out of this world when paired with their cherry molasses BBQ sauce.

In Cleveland we stayed at the Drury Inn Downtown. Drury Inns…

Finished!

Saw my last 5 MLB ballparks this week on the East Coast. Have now been to all 30 of the current MLB  ballparks. Visited 27 of them in the last two seasons. Had a great time and met some great people along the way. Caught two foul balls this season, definitely a highlight. Went to my first Stadium Opener in Atlanta. Now it's time to start tackling the MiLB. Have only seen 6 of those so far so I have a long way to go. Hopefully bump into some more Chasers and Stampeders along the way,

Are the Yankees back?

How will the Yankees fare this World Series?

It is now eight years since the New York Yankees last won the World Series and they have not been back to the season finale since beating the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 in 2009, but the signs are good that the sleeping giants may be awakening.

With six weeks of the season gone, the Bronx Bombers sit atop the American League East standings and are well placed to challenge…

Game 1

I went to my first ever Major League Baseball game with my mom.  I suppose it is appropriate, then, that for the first game of this trip, I went with my mom.  Here we are by the old Home Run Apple from Shea Stadium, which sits out front of the stadium.

The Mets pay homage to…

The Plan

I am not sure when I first got the idea.  Probably in late high school or early college.  It wasn't a sudden realization, more of a slow dawning. 

I want to see a baseball game at every Major League Baseball stadium.

Maybe it was because my first game was at Wrigley Field.  I walked out into the stands and thought, "What beautiful wonder is this, with pristine green grass and ivy covered walls under wide open blue sky?"  (Actually, I was seven or eight;…

Photo Diary from Wrigley Field Home Opener 2017

Cold and blustery night.  Ridiculous weather delays.  Got little sleep.  Totally worth it.

Been to them all

In 2013 I completed one of my bucket list items of going to all of the MLB ballparks. Fenway Park was the only one I hadn't taken my picture at, so we went back there in 2015, took the tour and had our picture taken.

Now with the Braves opening Sun Trust Park next month, I just got tickets to opening day. Looking forward to seeing another new ballpark!

Four Firsts for me!

Looking forward to a trip 3 weeks away, heading to Phoenix where a group of 4 buddies are meeting up, and I will be hitting four "firsts":

1) NCAA Final Four! Sorry, not baseball related, but I've been to 7-8 1st/2nd rounds of the NCAA Tourney, but never a Final 4!  Was lucky enough to get tickets this year, after many unsuccessful attempts.

2) Spring Training!  We will catch 2, possibly 3 games, as follows:

  - 3/30 12:10 Rockies @ Padres at Peoria Stadium

  -…

Here's a quirky thing I started doing at the ballgames I go to...

My son and I always compete to see how many triple peanuts we can get out of a bag at the games we go to.  There was a game I went to without him so I took a photo of my triple to send him in the name of good-natured taunting.  

Here is a collection of my triples since that time - hope you enjoy!
