Over Labor Day weekend I'm going to do Atlanta, Tamps, and Miami. I'm going to fly into Atlanta on Saturday, go to the ballgame, and then fly out Sunday morning. Can I get to and from the game in an hour or less using MARTA? If I stay by the airport, which hotel do you recommend?
I'm flying into Tampa Sunday morning and out Sunday night. It looks like there's no public transportation to get to and from Tropicana Field, so I guess I need to rent a car?
What about getting to the…Continue
I plan my trips based on a weekend where I can see three games in reasonable proximity to each other. This limits my options. There are only so many weekends the Astros and Rangers are both home. So I don't choose the teams. If you can, you should.
I checked out Stubhub.com tickets in the Terrace Infield Box for the Orioles. Tickets for a game with the White Sox showed a bunch of tickets available for between $18 and $22. For the Red Sox there was nothing less than $66. For…Continue
I live in Southern California, so this trip actually works out better. This would be a great trip for anyone on West Coast. Megabus in combination with a few Greyhound rides, or just the 60 day Greyhound pass would work great, all the bus times work with this schedule, much cheaper than driving and no parking fees.

I did Fenway last night. More about that here.
I'm supposed to chase Baltimore tonight. I'm looking at the ballpark. No rain yet, but they're calling for it. It doesn't count if it's rained out.
I just got tickets to the Hall of Fame Classic in Cooperstown on Memorial Day Weekend. Anyone else planning to be up there then? SO excited. Package includes a meet-and-greet with former players and some Hall of Famers. Have not been to Cooperstown in over a decade and this seems like the perfect time to return!
Ben Archer here. My dad, Steve Archer, started this company back in 1995. Since then I've been able to stand on the field of many ballparks, most of which aren't around anymore. In fact I've probably been in more extinct ballparks than current.
Great idea for a site. Thought we'd be able to share some of our experiences while getting awareness out about Archer Seating and the memorabilia available from these old ballparks.
Our latest projects seem to be all…Continue

Has anyone recently ordered and received a MLB Passport through mlbpassport.com? I placed an order last week and still have not received any kind of shipping info. Also, I never received an official order confirmation, I emailed the contact at mlbpassport.com and they assured me that they got the order but still no official receipt from them. Just wondering how long they usually take to ship out? I am flying out to Minnesota in 2 week to visit Target field, I would be bummed if I don't have…Continue
I'm two weeks away from my first chaser trip of the year. I know I've written about how I plan these, so here it is in action.
Game 8: Thursday, April 24, 2014, Yankees at Red Sox, Fenway Park
I fly on a non-stop from LA to Boston that arrives in to Boston at 4 PM. It's on American, which isn't my preferred airline, and it leaves at 7 AM. I don't like doing that. But that's the only flight I can get that I know I'll make…Continue
Going to Chase Field next week - Any advice on seats and food?
I really wanted to like Cleveland. Penny says she felt the same way.
Cleveland is one of our local teams, at least what we can call local (since we don't actually live in a city). We live in West Virginia, on the Ohio River. We're two-and-a-half hours from Pittsburgh and Cleveland, a little more than three from Cincinnati. We, therefore, call Cleveland accessible. So, it would be nice to love going to an Indians game.
Here are some other reasons we want to be Indians…Continue

My baseball craving was only very slightly sated by an emergency trip to Daejeon to see the Hanwha Eagles on Saturday 15th April, but that trip was rushed. Very rushed. So I didn’t have time to have much of a wander around what looks to be a very nice stadium.
I made sure I had plenty of time for wandering when I headed into Jamsil Stadium in Seoul for a Saturday spring training game – KIA Tigers at LG Twins. It’s a rather tedious and uncomfortable 2 hours on a very…Continue

In honor of opening day, list how many stadiums you've been to, how many you're going to, how many are new, and how many defunct stadiums you've been to.
Been to: 15 stadiums
Going to this year: 19 stadiums (12 new)
Defunct: 9 stadiums
Yes, I'm going big chasing this year.
So the plan as of now for this season is to make my annual Chicago trip to see the White Sox on June 18th vs. the Giants. I had planned to make Minnesota my new park to visit, but I am now traveling to San Diego in July. They were just building Petco when I was last there in 2002 so I visited Jack Murphy that year. So on the 4th of July, I will be crossing Petco off my list for park #16. Probably going to take the kids to Detroit late in July to see the White Sox.
Just discovered this site... looking forward to interacting with you all! I'm a huge Mets fan living in the middle of Cardnals country in St. Louis... makes for some pretty interesting interactions with the fans here.
I have a blog about my experiences visiting the first 13 stadiums... check it out if you're so inclined. Looking forward to answering questions and interacting with everyone here!

I recommend Stubhub. First, Stubhub's pricing is all in. So the price you see includes all the fees. It's almost always cheaper than the prices the team is selling them for. And they don't list all their fees on their prices. Also, Stubhub gives you rewards points. So if you buy enough tickets to any game, you'll eventually earn a discount on later tickets. Buying Padre tickets from the team doesn't help you later to buy Dodger tickets for less.
If you're like me, you're…Continue

The wife and I just finalized our 2014 ballpark trip. We are flying from Kansas City and flying into Indianapolis. We only have 4 nights from May 9th-13th. From there, our itinerary is...
Day 1: Drive from Indianapolis to Louisville. Go to Churchill Downs for live horse racing. Then, finish off the night by going to a Louisville Bats game.
Day 2: Visit the Louisville Slugger museum/factory and take the tour. From there, drive to Cincinnati and watch the Reds…
