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…

Hall of Fame Classic

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!

About Us

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…

MLB Passport

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…

April 24-28 First Chaser Trip of the Year

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…

I really want to like Cleveland, but Cleveland doesn't always cooperate

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…
