Hi Craig (or possibly whatever autobot that sent me the email)...

First of all, I think your site is such a great idea, its the only one of its kind I could find.  But I do have a suggestion, if at all possible... I really think you could set up a template for a little more graphically clearer list of ballparks people have been to for their pages.  Quite simply, just a rundown list of the parks they've been to, and on each line: the ballpark, a picture of the ballpark, and then any notes the user wants to add about their trip to the ballpark (star rating, date attended, etc.)  I think it'd make for a nice read and an easier quick look for other people as to which parks they've attended.  Something like:

STADIUMS I'VE VISITED:

(PIC OF STADIUM)  Dodger Stadium       my home stadium. Great dogs!

(PIC OF STADIUM)  AT&T Park                great retro look, extra fun for kids

(PIC OF STADIUM)  Petco Park                have to sit in sandbox in right field

Something like that.  Anyway, thanks again, ad look forward to seeing the site grow!

best,

Tom Huang

We are planning a minor league weekend in July.  Harrisburg on Friday, State College on Saturday and Reading on Sunday.   I'm also trying to talk my wife into going to see the Pirates at Indians next weekend.

Next week my son and i are going to Atlanta, then joining up with my Dad in Florida to see a game in Miami and Tampa. After that the only stadium my son and i will not have gone to is Coors Field in Colorado.

Definitely would love to write a piece for your site! Any size restrictions? One page of a word doc? Character limit etc? We'll get one to you soon! Thanks Craig. Heard a lot of good about your site. Excited to be a part of it!

Thanks Craig!  My stepson and I want to visit all 30.  We went to PNC last year - his first MLB game.  This summer we will hit Camden Yard and Nationals Park.  Looking forward to using this site.

Tnx Craig. I am having a tough time using the mapping thing. I've entered in the parks that I've been to, hit the green button and not much happens. What am I doing wrong?

Also, I wonder if there is a ranking of most lifetime parks visited? I'm curious who's on top on this site. Love the site and will pass on to my friends. I've been a "Ballpark Chaser" for years, but I really never have a name for it.

It's funny. When I was in my twenties, and went to baseball stadium tours, invaribly we'd talk about stadiums visited, and I was in awe of the old guy with 25+ stadiums viewed. Now I'm the old guy!

After I posted my reply, I saw the Ballpark guides... That is awesome!! Keep up the good word and I'll continue to spread the word...

Thanks for the welcome. I've thrown out a few posts so far. I'm trying to spread the word about this site... Seems there should be much more traffic here. I like reading the posts from around the country, but I feel more and more jealous by the minute... haha

Great site Craig. The first stadium I ever went to was Veteran's Stadium 1986. In 2003 I met my future wife and ever since every year we have been adding stadiums. This year we go to #29 and #30. Miami Marlins then a trip to Tropicana Field to finish up all the stadiums. I've also been to 10 stadiums no longer with us. My wife needs Comerica Park and she will also have all 30 stadiums. Including this years trip which includes a bonus trip to Atlanta and our favorite stadium Busch stadium the ending mileage comes to 38,800 miles. What a great way to see every stadium and the country.

Hi Craig,

Yes.  I'll be doing a West Coast swing in June including Oakland, Los Angeles, Anaheim, and San Diego.  While there I hope to also catch a San Jose Giants or Sacramento River Cats game.  

I'm moving to Cleveland in July and hope to add Detroit to my list this summer (I've already been to Progressive Field and Great American Ballpark). 

Thanks for adding me to the site!

Craig,

No specific plans, but I do have a couple questions. Firstly, do you happen to know of a resource for recommended RV parks that are convenient to ballparks? Secondly, can you recommend a method for viewing/comparing the schedules of several teams at once to plan a rolling tour of several sites?

 

Thanks, Chris

Thanks for letting me in. And yes, today 5/6/12, my son and I are finishing our 614 day, 30,658 mile journey and hitting #30 in Houston. We started our last leg on 4/28 with stops in Atlanta, Miami, Tampa, Toronto, Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh last night. What a journey it has been. We have a wealth of knowledge for any others that are making their quest!

Thanks Craig. Love the site! Yes! Stadium 18 and 19 with Minnesota and Milwaukee. Trying to get to two a year with my wife and two sons who are 7 and 3. I live in Los Angeles. Thanks for this site!

Hi Craig,

Actually I am going to Citizens Bank Park next week to see Phillies/Mets game and also to Oriole Park for the Rangers/Orioles game as well.  Looking forward to both, should be fun.

Next ballpark is Fenway

We plan on going to several Sacramento River Cats games this season, our local team, (A's Triple-a team).  I'm a HUGE Cardinals fan and we'll be driving to Nebraska later this summer. On our way the Cards will be in Denver so we're going to catch a game at Coors Field.  I have never been there but have heard its an awesome ball park.  This is awesome site.  Thanks!

Hi Craig... Thanks for the message. Been a huge baseball fan since I was a kid. Before 2007, I had only seen my hometown stadium, Camden Yards, which is beautiful. Now I've seen 26 of the 30 MLB stadiums. In April, I was at Coors field in Denver. This memorial day weekend, I'll be in Arizona to see Chase field. In August, I'll see AT&T park and the Oakland coliseum. I'll finish in Miami probably early next year. Can't believe I've seen all these stadiums. Its a lot of fun seeing these great stadiums and seeing the sights in all the cities.
