Baseball Movies/Shows (TV Is Missing A Big Opportunity!)

I'm sitting here enjoying Major League, which I always find myself digging out at this time of year. The fact that I'm heading to Cleveland in April makes the movie that much more fun. There've been countless posts over the years about which baseball movie is the best. Which one is your favorite? Which one is the most realistic? Who's the best baseball actor in a movie? Really the list goes on and on. The thing I've really noticed over the years though is that TV is missing a giant opportunity.… Continue

2010 All-Star Game tickets

Anyone know when the all-star game or HR Derby tix will go on sale to the non-season ticket holding general public? I can't find anything on the Angels site, except for all-star celebration activities, which I'm not really interested in attending, except for the actual game or HR Derby. They are way too expensive on StubHub, etc...

I'm going back to Cali...

So the wife and I planned a trip to Disneyland with some friends and their kids for this coming August. Over the past week or so I have been looking into driving to LA, even if just by myself. As it turns out, I will be going solo. That worries me not. If you're gonna be driving and you're gonna be in town when there are games being played, seems silly not to take in said games, yeah? I FULLY AGREE! So here is what I am looking at:



August 17th:
Depart Lacey, WA @ 4am (no later… Continue

All 30 in one season - Again

Last season I accomplished the goal of seeing an official MLB game at all 30 MLB ballparks in one season. I met so many wonderful people and had some really great experiences. This season I am going to do all 30 again only I am partnering with the Sudden arrhythmia death syndromes (SADS) foundation in raising awareness as well as money for the Shawn M DeVries Memorial Fund which benefits the SADS foundation. Each year over 350,000 people, many under the age of 30, die from SADS related heart… Continue

Just three weeks to my first of four baseball roadtrips this season

Down to Tucson. It's supposed to snow (showers and flurries - not a storm) for the next five days here so it will be a nice reprieve to be down in AZ for an extended weekend. I'll be seeing a lot of tourist stuff, as well.

Tickets to First Series at Target Field

I'm very excited to be able to go and represent Stadium Journey to do a review of Target Field as part of their first series against the Red Sox. Now let's just hope it doesn't snow. Does anyone have recommendations for bars or restaurants near the park?

Road Trip Options -- HOF?

I'm working on finalizing this year's trip. I have it down to 2 itineraries, both packed to the gills (per normal). Question I'd ask is who's been to Cooperstown? How long did you spend there? Was it long enough? What do you think the perfect amount of time to spend there is? I think I spent a good 2-3hrs at the Slugger Museum in Louisville.

Road Trip Option #1 (7 games in 4 days, 2 states, 2 countries)

4/27 - Fly out 11pm

4/28 - Arrive in Detroit at 6am. 11:35…

Caribbean Series starts today!!!

Hey friends,



If you've never watched the Caribbean Series, do yourself a favor and check it out. I became a fan in 2005 and watch it religiously on TV every year. It's broadcasted on the MLB Network in English or on ESPN Deportes in Spanish. The passion and level of play is pretty unreal. It first began in 1949 and is played with the winners of each Winter League in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. You even get MLB players in the mix. This year it's in… Continue

First Pitch at Florida Marlins new Ballpark!

Here is the answer to a future Marlins trivia question. Josh Johnson threw out the ceremonial first pitch last week on the grounds of the Marlins new ballpark site. I guess we know who their franchise player is...receiving $39 million dollars just moments before.
