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…Continue

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…Continue

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;…Continue

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

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!
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
|Team Name||Stadium Name||Visited (Year of First Visit)|
|Arizona Diamondbacks||Chase Field (was Bank One Ballpark)||Yes (1998)|
|Atlanta Braves||Sun Trust Park||Not Yet|
|Baltimore Orioles||Oriole Park at Camden…|
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!
45 MLB ballparks under my belt, twice in my life I've been to all current. 4 more makes it 3! Flying out to Minneapolis, New York then Miami to make it to the round number of 49... Looks like I'll have to wait for Atlanta's opening in 2017 to make it to 50. Wave if you see me!

Chaser places to go would be a little bar at Jack London Square called,"Heinolds First and Last Bar. You can drink your beers outside in the sand patio and the bar itself is one of a kind.. Fun super little place and not all that far from the stadium.

I am planning on the Diamondback game on July 19. Is anyone else available to join me? I am travelling by myself to Phoenix. I also need suggestions for where to park (are there shuttles?) and if it is possible to move from 1 level of the stadium to another. Some stadiums, such as White Sox and Dodgers, you cannot get from 1 level to another. Most stadiums you can move levels, and if by yourself usually can upgrade to a better seat. Also is Stubhub/Ticket Monster, etc., the best place to get…Continue
