Bay Area Road Trip

Hello all:

I'm planning a trip to see the Oakland A's play but want to stay in San Francisco and commute to a couple of games. This is my 9th stadium and the 7th of our mother/daughter quest to see the Boston Red Sox play in every AL stadium. Would appreciate any advance ballparkchaser fans can provide on where to stay...what to see...where to sit...and best way to get to and from the stadium.

Final question, "does anyone know what hotel the Red Sox stay at when in…

University of South Carolina

Just back from a weekend series at University of South Carolina. Very nice college ballpark and very nice people. Fridays game got rained out and was rescheduled for as part of a doubleheader on Sunday. The parking lot I parked in Friday let me park for free for the makeup game. Also a fan gave me a souvenier coca-cola bottle from their 2011 national championship year. This was my 70th park seeing a college game and first college park seeing a nio-hitter as my Albany team got no-hit by SC in…

What do you do?

I was looking to see what it is that everybody has on there "Must do list" when they go to a ballgame. I have to do the following things:

1.Keep my ticket stub

2.Walk around the inside and outside of each stadium

3.Keep Score

4.Get plenty of pictures of the stadium

5.Buy a team hat

6.Eat the signature ballpark food (see my stadium foods blog)

Looking forward to see what everybody else does. Again if anybody has any good foods they have had in Colorado,…

Baseball Fans Bucket List, Spring Training, and Looking Back at Turner Field

Yesterday I wrote about having picked up a book titled The Baseball Fan's Bucket List. This book has a list of 162 things that we baseball fan's must see, do, get & experience. I'm sure most of you have already done a good number of the things listed in this book, such as Take a Baseball Road Trip ( Listed #1 ), Go to Opening Day ( Listed #3 ), and there's some things that some of us may never do, like Throw Out the First Pitch ( #139 on the list ) or Host a Minor League Ball Player (…

Great site...

Great site, glad to see people who share the passion of MLB and the ballparks. I've been to a bunch, but still have a long way to go. PNC Park is my favorite, the view on the river is amazing. I've been to the Vet, Old Yankee and Shea as well as the current stadiums I have marked above. I am a big Phillies fan, O's are my AL team and since I now live close to Denver, I am a Rockies fan by default. This summer I have a trip planned to US Cellular, Wrigley (again), Miller Park and Target…

Booking 2013's Ball Trip

I'm in the planning stages of planning our 2013 ball trip. We (me, my two brothers, dad and uncle) are tying up loose ends on the east coast and are trying to figure out where to go this year.

Looking for someone that may have access to 5 tickets to either the Yankees or the Indians. Looking at the weekend of July 5th for our trip this year.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks everyone......
GO Jays Go!

Top 10 MiLB and NOF Parks

Since the quest to see all 30 MLB parks is over for my son and I we are looking for a good top 10 of MiLB and NOF (non-affiliated) parks. I would like to get a feel of what everyone here believes is their top 10. There are two rules. One, the ballpark must host some MiLB or NOF teams at least once a season (Rickwood Field falls into this category). Two, it can be anywhere in the world (NOF fails into this category). I've heard seeing a game in the Dominican Republic is phenomenal. So strike…

Dallas/Texas Rangers

Hello everyone! Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions on something fun or unique that I should check out in the Dallas area this spring? We will be there for 2 days and the only plan I have is going to a Friday night Rangers game. We will be traveling with a very energenic 3 yr old so keeping that in mind, bars will be out for us. Thanks for any suggestions!

Greetings from SoCal.

I am glad to have found this little corner of the world wide web.

I was born 4/22/70 and have been a baseball fan my whole life.

I have attended tons of games at Dodger Stadium but my first love will always be Anaheim Stadium/Edison Field/Angel Stadium of Anaheim. My story is I'm sure like so many others. It was 1975 and my dad wanted to take me to see the Angels take on the 3 time defending World Series Champion Oakland A's. I can still remember walking hand in hand with my…

Next post....2013

Hello chasers, its been a while. Had a wild 2012. Had a death in the family this holiday season, so christmas was an emotional one for us. I also enrolled in school, which takes a lot of my time. As a 49ers fan, the Super Bowl didn't go as I hoped, but, there's always next year.



The 2013 MLB schedule is out, and I am not sure how I feel about some of the changes. I personally like the old days with no inter league, though, I kind of think it's bout time the AL west has more… Continue
