NYM Welcome Back Veterans

I was recently contacted by a member of the Wounded Warrior Project who was contacted by the New York Mets and www.welcomebackveterans.org on my behalf.  This is a pretty amazing program.  During every game of the 2012 season the New York Mets will honor one veteran at the end of the third inning.  The veteran will appear on the Jumbo Tron and be thanked for his or her service.  They will be sitting in the first row behind the…

Will you be at any of these games?

I've been working on the details of this trip.  I know where I'm going to be when and how long it is going to take to get to each park.  What I am still working on is where I'm going to stay when.  If you know any good places to stay in any of these cities or anywhere between them send me an email at Baseballdreamin45@yahoo.com.  Here is where I will be on game day and the finer details of the trip.  If you would like to come along or meet me…

The airlines wanted me to surrender my only child to fly into Seattle, so we opted for Denver instead this year.  Flight and hotel is booked.  I just need some advice on how to handle the ticket and the subsequent drinking when we get there.  I have noticed that the tickets are pricey on the Rockies website, yet somewhat reasonable through StubHub.  Any suggestions?

Calling out all Park Experts

Hello Chasers,

As part of my World Record Pursuit, I am interviewing 30 baseball experts for the 30 MLB parks.  Your bio (plus 6 or 8 pictures_ will be prominently displayed on a feature article the same day I will be visiting the park.  A lot of it will be about the park and sights of the given.  I will be focusing a lot on traditions,  the fans, the team itself and their relevance to the city.  Nothing big.  The first couple of questions will introduce your bio.  The whole…
