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

I have been to 23 of the 30 current MLB ballparks but have enjoyed the national past time at 36 parks. Huh?, you ask. I have been to 1023 regular season or playoff games (I don't count spring training) and have retained the ticket stubs for all of them. Some of these games are at stadii and parks that are only memories or if you're lucky, these sights of ancient gatherings have a marker, a plaque, or part of the structure still standing. Montreal's Stade Olympique , the Houston Astrodome,…Continue

I am excited to be going to three ballparks in three days with my Dad: Detroit, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. It will be great time with my Dad and I will get to cross off three new ballparks. I used a ton of useful info from Ballpark Chasers to plan the trip.
I'm just getting started here, and have plans to start a blog of my own about all things as a stay at home dad. One part of this blog is the quest my son and I am on to visit all the ball parks.
We don't plan on doing them all this year, or the year after. We hopefully have a very long time to complete our quest.
I used to travel on business before my wife and I decided to have kids and I started to stay home to raise my family. Usually when I would visit a new…

We have 23 out of 30 MLB parks in the bag now. We take a Jay Buckley trip next week and will get 5 more.Continue
The field may be new, but the team, of course, is not. My son Frank and I have been to several games at Wrigley, but we’ve never been to US Cellular Field. My boyfriend John and his daughter joined us for this chilly spring game.
We drove all day to make it to Chicago for a 7:05 game on a Friday night. I…Continue

Just got back from a vacation to Cartagena. What a great trip. I figured some folks here would find this interesting so I thought I'd share. I'll try to keep it short and let the pictures do the talking.
One of the highlights of the trip was chasing down a game somewhere in Cartagena. I knew going down there, their winter leagues at the stadium were not going on. However, I had read about street ball leagues that play on Sundays (for many their only day off) and was hoping to catch a…Continue
Hi, if anyone's interested, I was on TV a few weeks ago talking about ballparks. Since it was in CT we talked about Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park, and also I added in Camden Yards, PNC Park and Citizens Bank Park. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=432T4ob8nfk

Hello, Ballpark Chasers. My name is Matt, I'm from the greater Pittsburgh area, and I live and die with the Pittsburgh Pirates (mostly die, until recently).
I go to 35 or 40 games a year at PNC Park. I love seeing other ballparks too, and I've done a few weekend trips to see the Pirates play on the road in nearby stadiums. It's always been my dream to take a road trip and see all 30 parks, though. I hope I'm at a point someday that I'll be able to do that.
Every fall, when MLB…Continue
Good Morning, I will be in Washington June 28th-July 1st and was wondering if any one had an recommendations for hotels near the stadium. I'm not really looking to spend a mint, but im also not looking for a Motel 6. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My Chaser experience includes buying a game used base from each ball park I visit that day. Most parks have a authentic game used equipment store or kiosk. I cannot find any such information on this with the White Sox. Does any know who to contact for such a request? ....Thank you for your help!
Hitting St. Louis at Pittsburg Wednesday, Bosox at Cleveland Thursday, and Rays at Baltimore Friday. 3 more stadiums to get me up to 14 over all. Hope it warms up a little.

The designated hitter was instituted in the American League in 1973. The rule, that lets a position player hit in place of the pitcher, was the brainchild of notorious Chicago White Sox owner Bill Veeck.*
If the Designated Hitter comes to the National League in 2017, I predict position players will be allowed to re-enter games by 2020. If those things become reality, the active roster limit should remain at 25 players to keep some strategy in the game.
*Note: This blog post…Continue
