I started my quest for all 30 ballparks last August, going to 7 in August and September. I have another 13 scheduled through July and may go to more last in the season.
Here's my blog:

Best place to sit? Any must do's while at the park? Fun things to do around town?
Looking for any advice to make my trip better. Thanks!

My friend and I are on our second year of our baseball roadtrip. First year was mid-June with games in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, both New York teams, Boston, and Washington D.C. This summer we are planning 2 weekend trips; first one is in July with a Friday night game in Milwaukee and Saturday and Sunday games in Minneapolis. We have another trip in mind and that is Coors field. We are planning to leave on a friday afternoon/evening out of Chicago (our home city) and fly into Denver. Any advice…Continue

Our 3rd annual summer baseball roadtrip date has been decided. May 15-18. This year we are going to hit Toronto, Boston and the Hall of Fame. Starting from Detroit, Thurday night in Toronto, Friday in Boston(against the Tigers), Saturday Hall of Fame, Sunday driving back home.
Any ideas on some must see spots would be nice, but the biggest question I have is How long does it take to go through the Hall of Fame??. We'll be going before Memorial day so the hours I believe are 9-5.…Continue
I am planning on finishing my all 30 teams in their home stadium goal these next two years, and thought I would pose a question or two on here to those in he know.
Seattle is my main goal, and I was wondering how the transportation to and from the airport to the park is? I recall reading it was a short ride via mass transit, but wanted to get the exact details down before I finalize my plans. More than likely it will be a weekday game, and my goal is to fly into…Continue
This is a trip that my family has been excited for for a while now. We live in New Hampshire, which is kind of trapped in a corner when it comes to seeing games. Therefore, we have to get somewhat creative in our trips, which we love doing together every summer. I turn 16 in July and my dream is to see all 30 stadiums by the time I turn 20.
Anyways... In the last week of April, while my school is on April Break, we will fly out west to see games in Phoenix and Denver over the course…Continue
My wife to be and I have decided to hit the road for our honeymoon this summer after our nuptials in June. Now I know I am a lucky man but she is generally really excited to check out new parks and American cities. We are from Ottawa, Canada and two years ago I took her to Fenway Park and she fell in love with the whole experience. Baseball has been a big part of our relationship as I have been a competitive Little League coach throughout my courtship. This culminated this past summer in my…Continue
We are considering making the trek to Cooperstown for the induction weekend at the end of July and catching a Buffalo Bisons game along the way.
I have been to the Hall of Fame and Cooperstown before but never for the induction weekend. It already looks like the hotels in the area are booked so any advice on where to stay?
Any advice on the induction day itself? How early should we plan to get there in order to have a chance of seeing the stage and hearing the…Continue
I think we have decided to take a trip to the Los Angeles area in mid June and it looks to work out that we will be able to see the Dodgers at the beginning of the week and the Angels at the end of the week.
I have a couple of questions for anyone that lives in the area or is in the know:
1. Is there tailgating allowed in the parking lots at either stadium?
2. It looks like we may be staying in the Pasadena area - any recommendations for family-friendly…Continue
Has anyone done San Francisco, Oakland and Seattle in one trip (driving from SF to Seattle)? How long did it take you? Have 7 stadiums to go and it would be nice if we could go to 3 this summer.
I had always dreamed of visiting all 30 the first summer after I retire but decided last year why wait. I set a goal last year to visit them all within a 5-7 year span. One week long trip and one weekend trip each summer and see all the sights along the way. I began last June when the Giants visited Turner Field for a weekend. This was my official kickoff to this goal although I had been there many times. In July for my week long trip I went to Boston > Cooperstown > NYC. Flew into BOS…Continue
I have landed a job in Korea for the next 12 months. I start work on 14 February.
Opening day for the KBO is March 29 at Jamsil (Seoul), Munhuk (Incheon), Daegu (Daegu) and Sajik (Busan) and the season runs through until the middle of September. I can probably make Sunday afternoon games in Seoul, Incheon and Daejeon from where I will be living. but it will probably make more sense to go for a Saturday evening game and stay overnight. The other stadiums in the south of the…Continue

I've already been to 21 ballparks but for anyone starting out this is pretty cool to get.....www.mlbballparkpassport.com
If you've been to alot already I received as a gift a ballpark map to track what ballparks you've been to.... for this item go to www.mapyourtravels.com
If your travels take you to Denver, just down the street from Coors Field, is a museum that you MUST see. It is the National Ballpark Museum. It boasts an impressive collection of ballpark memorabilia that is more comprehensive than any displayed elsewhere. It is a must see for all Ballpark Chasers as well as anyone else interested in the history of baseball ballparks. It's curator, Bruce "B" Hellerstein, is enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, and an exemplary host.

Saw the Cardinals play the Reds in late August, 2013. The Busch Stadium tour is excellent.
