On Tuesday March 4, 2014 my wife and I left Cape Coral FL and headed to Clearwater to watch the Jays play and evening game with the Phillies. While in the area I went to Dunedin to pick up a 2014 Training Camp pin. I got to the Blue Jays store at 2:36 p.m. at the Florida Auto Exchange stadium. The store was closed. I saw staff inside counting their receipts and I pleaded to sell me a pin. I was wearing my blue jays hat, I informed them I had cash and I just drove 3 hours to get there.…Continue

By the way for those Jay fans who have never been to Dunedin it is by far the worst Spring Training facility that I have seen to date. It is truly minor league and the practice field area is old, tired and unkept. It is an embarrassment. Wake up Jays… build it and they will come.

I can only afford to make one baseball trip this season, and I am torn between going to Seattle on my birthday, to see my favorite team, the Mets play two games at Safeco, or see the Cubs play the Cardinals at Wrigley, and the Mets play the Brewers at Miller Park.
I've never been to either city before, and both trips will cost about the same.
The way I see it, is if I go to Seattle, I will be able to see my favorite team play on my birthday, in a city that they might not play in…
I'm going to Kansas City and St. Louis on the same trip in June. I'll arrive in Kansas City on Saturday morning for a Saturday afternoon game. Then I'll head to St. Louis for a Sunday afternoon game. The big problem for me is that there's only one airline that flies from Kansas City to St. Louis, Southwest. They only have one flight between the end of the Saturday game and the start of the Sunday game. It arrives in St. Louis at 12:25 PM, only 45 minutes before the first pitch. That could be…Continue
Due to my wife starting a new job recently (and not having much vacation time) this years road trip, my 10th year taking one, will be different than years past. Normally we take a full week or two to travel. This year instead of one big trip, there will be several small trips. Sadly though, only two or three new ballparks will be visited. Nashville and Huntsville will definitely be visited at the end of June. I want to see both stadiums before the Sounds move into their new ballpark and…Continue

As I’ve surfed ballpark related sites over the years I’ve seen a number of “rate the ballpark” sites, but in almost all cases, the criteria are completely subjective – they are one person’s (or a few people’s) opinion. I was curious on a grander scale, so I ran through Facebook Places and harvested and compiled their rankings from the 30 MLB stadium pages.
They’re rated there by the general public on a 1 to 5 star basis, but as about 70% of the responders use a default five stars, I…Continue
I will be visiting my first out-of-town ballpark of the season in April. I am going to go to the Marlins v. Mariners game on April 19th. I wanted to get to Miami last year, but wasn't able to, so I'm really looking forward to it this year! I'll only be in town for the day, flying out the next morning, but I was able to make it work with my schedule. If anyone is interested in meeting up at the game let me know.
I've made a few changes to the schedule for this season:
Game 1: August 25, 2013, Red Sox at Dodgers, Dodger Stadium
Game 2: August 30, 2013, Angels at Brewers, Miller Park
Game 3: August 31, 2013, Phillies at Cubs, Wrigley Field
Game 4: September 1, 2013, Indians at Tigers, Comerica Park
Game 5: September 2, 2013, Orioles at Indians, Progressive Field
Game 6: September 3, 2013, Cardinals at Reds, Great American Ballpark
Game 7: September 7, 2013, Rockies…

I plan on taking a one day trip to miller park can anyone out there tell me the best mode for transport I will rent a car but I hate doing that on a one day
Game tickets - When I read Will Leitch's 30 Games in 30 Days, I was surprised that he decided "I'll get the cheapest upper deck tickets possible." Is he nuts? He spends $300+ flying in, taking a cab, and staying a hotel, but he wants to save a little money on the game ticket? The game is the reason you're doing this. Stay in a less expensive hotel. Take public transportation. But when you're spending this much money getting there you should sit in the seat you want to sit…Continue

Apparently, the Mets have Bark at the Park days, when you can bring your dog and sit on the Pepsi Porch. Never thought I would do this, but bought a ticket for April 6th for me, my wife and our puppy if any NYC-area dog owners might be interested in joining. Baseball and dogs...together at last! It benefits the North Shore Animal League.

Anyone going to spring trainiing in Florida in mid-March? If you are and would like to meet up, I'll be at:
Wed 3/12 - Tampa (Yankees)
Thu 3/13 - Lakeland (Tigers)
Sat 3/15 - Orlando (Braves)
Would love to meet any fellow chasers who will be in the neighborhood!
The first thing to remember when going on a baseball stadium road trip is why you're doing it. You want to see the game! Since the games have fixed starting times, you may need to choose a more expensive flight or travel at an early hour. But really what's the point of going when you only see half the game? If you can't make it work that you see all of it, skip that city.
Trip Length - I've scheduled multiple games, usually three, on all my trips. If you schedule three games in three…Continue
