Ballpark Chasers Weekend - Need a Grill Man!

HI Chasers,

The ballpark chasers weekend is 3 weeks from now, so of course we are making moves to ensure a weekend of fun.

We are looking for an experienced grill person to help us out cook some of the delicious hot dogs and hamburgers we will be doling out. We will kick in a free Manfish brewing T-shirt for your help.

Baseball Hall of Fame

I've never been to the Baseball Hall of Fame and was thinking of going. Have any of you been? What did you think? Is induction weekend great or an overpriced madhouse? Is that the time to go or should I go another time? What minor league ballparks nearby did you go to?

Safety At The Ballpark: Is Expanded Safety Netting Necessary?

Recent injuries at MLB ballparks have renewed discussions of expanded safety netting at the major and minor league level.  Some have suggested netting from dugout to dugout while others have taken it one step further and would like to see netting from foul pole to foul pole.  A class action law suit by an Oakland A's season ticket holder contends that Major League Baseball has been negligent in terms of guaranteeing fan safety and has demanded further safety netting.

Those who…

Saturday vist to DC - Pirates vs Nationals!

Just back from visiting my 7th ballpark. This past Saturday was treated to near perfect game! Max Scherzer's no hitter was bitter-sweet. Great seeing a no-hitter, but no against my Pirates. Impressed by the ballbark and what appears to be development in the area surrounding the ballpark. Was fairly easy to get to and from the park despite a sellout game. And the home fans and concession attendants were all very friendly to us out of towners! Overall I great day at the park!

Hitting 30 next Wednesday!

Next Wednesday, June 10, I'll be in PNC Park, my 30th baseball stadium. In August 2013 I set out a goal to go to all 30 by August 2015 and I'll do just that. Most people wouldn't see this as an accomplishment but I'm guessing you guys will carry me out of the stadium on your shoulders. Figuratively, of course.

Texas!

Fortunate to attend this year's SAS Global Forum conference in Dallas last week, and that the Rangers and Astros were in town! Knocked off two more on my way to 30, with just 8 teams and 9 parks left to visit. I'll get that down to 7 and 7 later this summer. I'll post up some pictures of my two games.

Cheers!

tickets

I am very excited to do a three game trip to the east coast with my father this year. He has no intention on achieving all 30 stadiums like I do, but this will be the 7th, 8th, and 9th ballpark i have dragged him to and will be my 22nd, 23rd, and 24th ballparks. The greatest stadium was Tiger Stadium! I respect all stadiums, but there was nothing more special than my grandfather taken my dad and I to a ballpark that his grandfather would take his father and him to when he was a kid! The new… Continue

Toronto trip

So I plan on seeing Toronto as my very last stadium to see in my quest to visit all the stadiums. I only chose to see them last is because the flight out to toronto is so expensive its ridiculous to even consider it. Not to mention everything else that goes with it. I need advice how can you get to toronto with a cheap airline and hotel to get to the stadium and back. I wanna hear from the others who been to toronto from the west coast since i live in california

Chicago hotels

After many years of threatening my wife I was going to embark on this journey, I began it last year. Going to San Diego and Miami parks.



This year is Braves, Cubs and White Sox.

Can anyone give info on decent places to stay in Chicago that is near the ball parks? I will not have a car and the distance between parks seems to be about 11 miles but have never been there and have no idea a good neighborhood from bad.

Not looking to stay in a flea bag motel, but not the 4… Continue

Nat's Park in June

Starting in Washington to see my Cubbies in every park the 4th thru the 7th. Staying in Arlington (Crystal City), Metro a block away from hotel. Have paper tickets to 4 games and was wondering if I can get the real ticket from customer service once I enter the park (for scrapbook purposes)? Also, which Ballpark Passport book should I buy? Am I missing anything? Please let me know.

1st park of the season

Hit my 1st park of the season last week going back to PNC which is one of my favorites for sure. Im not a Pirates fan but its really a great place to see a game, great fans there. It also seems to be one of the few remaining parks that still offers soft serve ice cream.

Notes from the purple pessimist – one win does not a season make

The Rockies beat Milwaukee 10-0 today, and I could care less!

Tomorrow night, it'll probably be tied 1-1 in the ninth with Ryan Braun laying down a suicide squeeze bunt – Rockies will lose 2-1, LOL.

The Rockies don't have any depth in their pitching rotation to begin with, and certainly can't withstand a big injury adding to the ones that already exist in the pitching staff. The Rockies will win 70 games, and only 70, in 2015.
