In 2016 we visited Yankees, Pittsburgh and Tampa! All very good experiences. This year we are planning Mets, Toronto and either Boston or Cleveland! If you have any good recommendations for any of these ballparks, i'd love to hear them.
Just checking this page between the Wildcard Games, and in rereading the thread I realize I knocked off that last National Park site late in the Fall. So, I still have the two western New York ballparks to hit. Since I no longer have that missing NP site to visit, I can perhaps add a ballpark in western or Central PA. Hmmm. Love mulling possible trips like this. Anyway, hope your winter is going well, Craig!
Yes, was a fun summer. I'm pairing ballpark travel with National Park travel to cover as much of the country as I can: National Park sites by day and then ballgames at night. Already know one weekend next year will involve seeing the Bisons and (if f they are still there, and my guess is they will be) the Batavia Muckdogs, along with the only NPS site in western NY I haven't seen. Fun, exciting way to let itineraries kind of design themselves.
Sorry to just respond. Still getting the hang of the page. Yes, I did visit seven new ballparks this year, all MiLB. Three in AAA, three AA and one in the NY-Penn League. Hashing out ballpark goals, some of which may be seeing every MiLB ballpark in NY (two left), seeing the remaining NYPenn League teams (six left), seeing every affiliate of my favorite team (the Yankees, and three so far), seeing an affiliate of all 30 teams (22 so far), seeing every AAA and AA ballpark (12 each so far), seeing a ballgame in all 50 states (over 30), etc. Tom
It was fun going to all the ball parks this year and completing my last one will be a great accomplishment which is the San Diego Padress . I been going. On my off days which are Tuesday and Wednesday's , and that's a lot of traveling . My favorite is San Francisco Giants , Yankees , St. Louis , Miami Marlins , then Pittsburgh are my top 5 parks .
Thanks for the welcome Craig. yes I visited Wrigley, Target Field, and Miller Park this summer. It is hard to get the teams that are fairly close together to play at the same time. So now we will need to go back to Chicago to see the White Sox but maybe fit in Detroit and Toronto on that trip. My sons try to go too and can't take off too much time from work at once. I like your website. Take care.
my brother and I did complete the dream to finish all 30 sites 7 year project one week per year. this year was 2 and half weeks to do the whole west coast seattle, Oakland, sanfran, dodger, angels,padres and diamondbacks, we had a few off days went thru las vegas and went to the grand canyon. great trip many memories and got to do them all with my brother!
I have not had much time to get to games this summer. I went to the Stampede in Cincinnati but have already been there once before. My baseball stadium buddies and I will be visiting Turner Field for the last two games ever when they play out Tigers!!! Looking forward to it should be a great time.
This year I've visited Fenway, Marlins Park, Busch, both Chicago parks, Camden Yards, and Cincinnati. I enjoyed Camden Yards the most but sitting in the monster seats at Fenway for the first time was fun. Your site plus the book Ultimate Baseball Road Trip made it easy to travel and get the most out of the experience.
