Hello all !!! It has been a long time since I have posted about anything here. I hope you've all had a good new year. I certainly can't wait for the baseball season to start. And we all know that the official countdown to spring training starts immediatly after the Super Bowl. As for the Super Bowl, it can't end soon enough for me especially with my 49ERS narrowly missing it this year.
Anyways, I hope you fellow ballpark travelers have your plans set for this summer. …Continue
I am planning on making it down to Miami with my two sons for Opening Day, our tenth in a row together, which will be my 54th major league ballpark, including all of the current ones and 24 that are no longer in existence or being used. Can't wait!

Bought a ticket yesterday for the March 28th game at the Tokyo Dome between the A's and the Mariners. Using frequent flier mileage for the flight from Newark, NJ, and only staying over one night in Tokyo, so the cost should be manageable. I've been to Tokyo before, courtesy of Uncle Sam, so am not concerned with sightseeing this time around. This ought to be a very unusual experience, and I'll be sure to post some highlights after my return.
