Hitting 30 next Wednesday!

Next Wednesday, June 10, I'll be in PNC Park, my 30th baseball stadium. In August 2013 I set out a goal to go to all 30 by August 2015 and I'll do just that. Most people wouldn't see this as an accomplishment but I'm guessing you guys will carry me out of the stadium on your shoulders. Figuratively, of course.

Texas!

Fortunate to attend this year's SAS Global Forum conference in Dallas last week, and that the Rangers and Astros were in town! Knocked off two more on my way to 30, with just 8 teams and 9 parks left to visit. I'll get that down to 7 and 7 later this summer. I'll post up some pictures of my two games.

Cheers!

tickets

I am very excited to do a three game trip to the east coast with my father this year. He has no intention on achieving all 30 stadiums like I do, but this will be the 7th, 8th, and 9th ballpark i have dragged him to and will be my 22nd, 23rd, and 24th ballparks. The greatest stadium was Tiger Stadium! I respect all stadiums, but there was nothing more special than my grandfather taken my dad and I to a ballpark that his grandfather would take his father and him to when he was a kid! The new… Continue

Toronto trip

So I plan on seeing Toronto as my very last stadium to see in my quest to visit all the stadiums. I only chose to see them last is because the flight out to toronto is so expensive its ridiculous to even consider it. Not to mention everything else that goes with it. I need advice how can you get to toronto with a cheap airline and hotel to get to the stadium and back. I wanna hear from the others who been to toronto from the west coast since i live in california

Chicago hotels

After many years of threatening my wife I was going to embark on this journey, I began it last year. Going to San Diego and Miami parks.



This year is Braves, Cubs and White Sox.

Can anyone give info on decent places to stay in Chicago that is near the ball parks? I will not have a car and the distance between parks seems to be about 11 miles but have never been there and have no idea a good neighborhood from bad.

Not looking to stay in a flea bag motel, but not the 4… Continue

Nat's Park in June

Starting in Washington to see my Cubbies in every park the 4th thru the 7th. Staying in Arlington (Crystal City), Metro a block away from hotel. Have paper tickets to 4 games and was wondering if I can get the real ticket from customer service once I enter the park (for scrapbook purposes)? Also, which Ballpark Passport book should I buy? Am I missing anything? Please let me know.

1st park of the season

Hit my 1st park of the season last week going back to PNC which is one of my favorites for sure. Im not a Pirates fan but its really a great place to see a game, great fans there. It also seems to be one of the few remaining parks that still offers soft serve ice cream.

Notes from the purple pessimist – one win does not a season make

The Rockies beat Milwaukee 10-0 today, and I could care less!

Tomorrow night, it'll probably be tied 1-1 in the ninth with Ryan Braun laying down a suicide squeeze bunt – Rockies will lose 2-1, LOL.

The Rockies don't have any depth in their pitching rotation to begin with, and certainly can't withstand a big injury adding to the ones that already exist in the pitching staff. The Rockies will win 70 games, and only 70, in 2015.

Inquiry on Gameday Travel to Colorado, Bay Area

Hey Guys and Gals,

I'm back and I am ready to go exploring many of the ballparks in this country this summer! I will have some extra cash because I graduate and I get a trip or two that I am planning for leisure. My goal is to see some more parks!

With that being said, I am thinking of visiting family in Colorado Springs for a week. This would naturally mean that I would have been accompany me in a Rockies game and would like to know what time to leave might be best or what…

Sometime in May my son and I will be driving to Detroit for a Tigers game and stopping in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, DC, and Baltimore and Philly to catch games there as well. Any recommendations on ticket sources, hotels, fun eating spots etc., are greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Will Ferrell

I have to give kudos to Will Ferrell. He did something I don't think any of us have ever attempted, chasing five ballparks in a single day! And they even let him play, an opportunity afforded me on none of my trips.

Sunshine Pair

I am taking a trip in July to do the Sunshine Pair (Rays & Marlins) We arrive in Tampa and have our time there mostly figured out. We are visiting Tropicana Field, Steinbrenner Field, Yuengling Brewery, Raymond James Stadium, and the SS American Victory. The two days in Miami we only have the Marlins game scheduled. I was hoping someone who lives in the general Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area, or has done this trip, has any suggestions for things to do while we are there. It doesn't have to be…

Texas trip in April

Tentatively, it looks like I will be heading down to Dallas to participate in a conference for work in late April. After the conference ends, I should be able to take in the Rangers at Globe Life Park (Wed - 4/29 vs Mariners) and drive to Houston for an Astros game (Thurs 4/30 vs Mariners). Haven't decided if I will take in a 2nd Astros game on 5/1, or just return to Dallas for another game on 5/1 (A's). Have been browsing through the Chaser Guides, which are extremely helpful, and whatever…

Ideas around town

Thank you for including me on this wonderful site you guys have here! I can't wait to get involved with the community.

I was curious, Me and my buddy who go on all of the baseball trips are heading to Denver and Seattle at the end of May. Does anyone have some ideas on what to do around town for tourists? In Denver we were planning on hitting the US Mint, Transportation museum, and Baseball museum. In Seattle, the road dog brewery tour, space needle and underground tour. If anyone has…
