Hey, Craig. Thanks for the warm welcome! No "big" ballpark trips planned this year; however, living in Southern California, oddly enough I'll be seeing my first game at Petco Park on August 1st. Hard to believe Petco's been around 8-9 years, I live 100 miles from the stadium and I've never seen a game there!! I was also supposed to take my son to Cincinnati right before Labor Day but his school schedule ended up being an issue, so, maybe next year!! Anyway, I look forward to many future trips to all the big league parks...
We'd love to have you stay with us, Craig! It's a great hotel, especially for baseball fans. Not only do we have views INTO the stadium, but you can find baseball memorabilia all throughout the hotel, mostly in the form of great old photos of past Cardinal greats!
Fifth Third Field in Dayton is great! The best part about it though, is it is always a packed house! The Dragons will pass the Portland Trailblazers later this summer for most consecutive sellouts by a professional team. The celebration is July 23 and I have heard co-owners Magic Johnson and Archie Griffin have been invited among many others.
Thanks Craig, I'm not yet a chaser like most of you but my wife and I try going to a different ballpark when we visit a city. I am going to Kansas City in August for a Yankees, Royals game. We're staying downtown and plan on taking public transportation around, including to Kauffman Stadium. Any suggestions for best and possibly least expensive way to do that? Thank you, Randy
Actually, yes! We've been to Camden Yards, Fenway Park, July 17th at Citi Field, then in mid August, Toronto, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Nationals, and Philly. Very excited. Your site is awesome, btw!!
