San Francisco Oakland

I once again am going on a roadtrip, which takes me to San Fran and Oakland. Looking at hotels, they are just ridiculously expensive. What do you guys recommend for a decent hotel preferably 2 star and up in one of these two cities for maybe 120 or less.

"What a cool goal- to see all 30 MLB ballparks"

My journey officially stated in July 2010, but I didn't know it at the time. What started out as a road trip from Milwaukee to Pittsburgh to visit family and squeeze in a Brewers game at PNC quickly turned into a new life goal. Jokingly, my then fiance suggested we attempt to see all 30 ballparks. I eagerly agreed. We are both huge baseball fans and love to travel, so I thought why not?!

My intentions were to see 2 ballparks a…

Official World Record Attempt - 30 games in 25 days

Ok Chasers,

 

With the help of Josh Robbins, I believe that I have narrowed down the best possible attempt at seeing all 30 Ballparks in 25 days by land. This has become an obsession for me over the past 10 years, and every summer I planned it, something happened to derail it. This is more than likely the last possible year I will be able to attempt this feat and this is the reason why.

In 2010 I was diagnosed with Relapsing/Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. It really slowed…

Today I will begin attending games all five California MLB ballparks in 29 hours!!!

Hi Chasers!

I just joined this group and I'm excited to be in it. I wanted to let you know what I'm doing starting today Sunday, May 25. I figured out how I can visit all five Calif ballparks while a game was going on. I don't think this has ever been done before so this will be fun to see if I can pull it off. Here's the schedule.

Sunday May 25

Petco Park-Padres vs Cubs at 1:05pm, watch one inning and then drive 93 miles to

Angel Stadium-Angels vs Royals…

Minnesota, Milwaukee, Detroit

My son and I will be visiting three new parks this season. Detroit, Minnesota, and Milwaukee. I am looking for some suggestions on some things to do particularly in Milwaukee. My kids are young so looking for "family friendly" ideas. Also if anyone has parking suggestions for Detroit I would welcome those as well.

Introduction/Question about possible summer ballpark trip?

Hello everyone, 

First off, thank you to the admins for allowing me into this great group of avid baseball fans who enjoy the game for what it is! 

I figured I would formally introduce myself to you all. If you couldn't tell, my name is Garrett, and I am a 22 year old college student who resides in Metro Detroit area, and yes I am proud of being from here. I call Comerica Park my home park and feel me to ask me for any suggestions on eating and hotel accomodations when you come…

Atlanta, Tampa, and Miami

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…

Avoid the Red Sox and Yankees

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…

2014 Summer Roadtrip starting from West Coast

        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.

June 6  SD vs Was

         7  Ari vs Atl

        10 Texas vs Mia

        12 Houston vs Ari

        14  Atlanta vs…

Chasing Baltimore

I did Fenway last night. More about that here.

http://all30stadiums.blogspot.com/2014/04/game-7-april-24-2014-yankees-at-red-sox.html

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.

Dodger Stadium Revisited

My review of Dodger Stadium last August was largely negative. And that was before I hit a bunch of modern stadiums later that week. The stadium just doesn't hold up, because it's old and hasn't been updated. I went back last night because my Phillies are in town. So I…
