New to the site

Hey everybody, just joined this site today after following on facebook for a long time.  I think it's great that we have this forum to share.  I did the 30 ballpark road trip in 2007 and have kept up with all of the new parks since then, I'll be getting to Miami in June.  I've also been to a bunch of minor league, independent, college summer, NCAA parks and my next park will be my 100th!  My absolute favorite league in the world is the Northwoods League, and if anybody out there has not yet…

One down, 29 to go

My brother Nick passed away suddenly last March.  He wanted to visit all 30 ballparks (among other things), so I'm taking up the mantle for him.

Nick should have turned 30 April 19.  To kick off my own attempt (I'm starting "clean" and not counting any previous games), I organized a birthday party for Nick for family & friends back home at PNC Park yesterday, April 22.  We sold 116 tickets!  And we decided to use the event to raise awareness of the importance of blood…

Promotions!

As a fellow chaser I want to see all 30 parks! Because this is the 100th year anniversary of Fenway, I figured they would have awesome giveaways! But to my surprise they basically have none? Unless I have seen the wrong list? My favorite team Cincinnati, has numerous Bobblehead giveaway, a fleece blanket, garden gnome, garden flag, firework night, etc. I did not see any of this for the Boston red sox. Someone please help/correct me if i am wrong!

Baseball Art

My wife and I took our annual trip to the Twins home opener.  We are undecided on this summer's baseball trip, which will be our 17th park.  I just wanted to share some really cool baseball art done by the folk singer & artist Will Johnson.  Interesting pieces.

Marlins Park!

Well we finally made it to all 30 MLB with the opening of the Marlins new ballpark. First of all let me say, as everyone else has in Miami, "At least it has air conditioning!" I'm going to break up the review in several parts from family friendly parts, to not so family friendly, to areas I liked better than most and other areas of the ballpark.



My son and I were seated in the Clevelander area of the ballpark. I chose this area of the park because you can look right into bullpen of… Continue

Beauty is in the Eye of the Ticket Holder

What makes a great baseball experience for you?

We all have our reasons to rate one team or stadium above another. Whether it be ticket price; a winning team; a team with a rich history and tons of tradition; a stadium with a great atmosphere, food, promotional give-aways and in-game entertainment; great uniforms; hot players; home run hitters; or a fan base who really knows baseball.…

First ballpark trip of 2012

I'm looking forward to visiting Marlins Park in one week as the Marlins return home ro welcome my beloved Astros for the first weekend series in their ballpark on 4/13-15. 

I'm excited to get back on the road to visiting ballparks after missing out last year on my annual summer baseball trip(s).  (Settling into a new job with limited vacation time was my excuse, but I hope to make up for it this summer! And besides, there wasn't a new ballpark to visit last year.)  Also…
