Well, I am officially starting my quest to visit all MLB stadiums, and am trying to group/pair visits and have the following schedule planned out. Does anyone have advice on best way to map out some of these trips?
My goal is to visit 5-6 stadiums per year with 3-4 trips each year. Here's the line up based on 3 trips a year:
2015 - 1) Marlins Park (opening day); 2) Tropicana Field; 3) Dodger Stadium/Angel Stadium/ Petco Park
2016 - 1) Comerica Park/ Progressive Field/ Great American BallPark; 2) Target Field; 3) Chase Field
2017 - 1) Atlanta (opening day @ new park); 2) Yankee Stadium/Citi Field; 3) Globe Life Park/ Minute Maid
2018 - 1) PNC Park; 2) Safeco; 3) miller park/ us cellular/ Wrigley (post renovation).
2019 - 1) AT&T/Orange Coliseum; 2) Kauffman Stadium/Busch Stadium; 3) Rogers Centre
2020 - 1) Citizens Park/Camden yards/ Nationals Park; 2) Coors Field; 3) Fenway
I live in Miami so am starting out with FL teams this year along with a trip to California. Curious if anyone else has mapped out all the stadiums and if you might have a different strategy to see all the stadiums?
My most aggressive trip was St. Louis, Cincinnati, Chicago (only U.S. Cellular), and Milwaukee. It's a nice loop.
I have made it to all of the current parks, but 99% of my "ballpark collection" has been through use of a baseball tour agency (Jay Buckley). You may want to look on their website to get some ideas of some sample itineraries for multi-city trips.
Also FYI - you can get to Miller Park from Chicago without driving - for a same/day trip - take the Hiawatha line on Amtrak. The train takes you to downtown milwaukee, then you can hop on a "90" stadium bus out to Miller Park. It's about a 90 minute train trip one way, and very economical ($22 one way)
