The national pastime, not the regional pastime

These days I hear a foolish adage kicked around way too often: there's no reason to like baseball unless you have a team playing; it has no reason to exist outside of your local or favorite team! Your team or the mega market Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, Dodgers, Angels if its not one of them!



No disrespect whatsoever to everyone here with team loyalties, but give me a break! If that were true, ballpark chasing would not be as fun, and this site wouldn't exist. All those rotisserie,… Continue

Baseball Bucket List

Since I've seen other people posting about this book, I thought I'd post my progress list.....

This list comes from the book "The Baseball Fan's Bucket List. 162 Things you must see, do, get & experience before you die." by Robert and Jenna Santelli. It'll take my whole life to finish it, but I'm working on it. (X)-denotes I've completed the action.

1. (X)-Take a Baseball Road Trip

2. (X)-Visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (Cooperstown. NY)

Coors Field Seating Tips

I'm going out to visit Coors Field for the first time in September for the Red Sox series. It's the final homestand of the year for the Rockies. I wanted to see if anyone could offer advice as to where to sit? There's limited quantity for seats left through the Rockies, so I am trying to buy early (unless I find a season ticket holder willing to sell). I'd like to hear your thoughts on the best place to sit, or if the sections I was considering are good. The most reasonable ones left on the…

Texas Tips?

Greetings Chasers. My wife and I are headed to Texas in 2 weeks to catch Rangers/Red Sox Friday and Astros/Tigers Saturday. These will be our 17th & 18th parks and are very excited. Just looking for any must do experiences around those parks and in between from those of you with Texas experience. Time is limited as we are flying into Ft Worth Friday afternoon and out of Houston Sunday morning. Thanks for any dining, drinking, & experience suggestions!

Chicago - White Sox-Twins, Sat 4/21/13

We went to Chicago for the day to see the Twins play the White Sox. Beautiful blue sky, a little cool in the shade. Close game until later in the game when Josh Willingham hit a bases-loaded clearing double to make it 5-2.

Took a taxi from/to the airport. Easy stadium to walk around in. Quite a few White Sox players had spots where they were giving autographs before the game.

Looking for info for AT&T Park and Safeco Field

My apologies if you've already read my post on the Chasers' facebook group page but I figured there are probably quite a few who aren't all that into the whole facebook thing.

Hope everyone is enjoying the young 2013 season.

I'm heading out to the West Coast in a couple of months and am looking to take in games at both AT&T Park and Safeco Field. I'd really appreciate if anyone can give me some info on either of those ballparks, and am particularly interested in where is best…

My Love/Hate Relationship with Stubhub

Let me get one thing out there right now. I love Stubhub. It's singlehandedly revolutionized the secondary market for event ticket sales. I no longer am forced to endure the unpleasant experience of haggling with nefarious characters in dark alleys for overpriced tickets that may or may not allow me entrance into the stadium when I walk up to the gate. In this day and age of electronic ticket scanners, I'd go as far as to say the security of Stubhub is an absolute necessity for the baseball…

Visits to Past Ballparks

Besides the visits to current Major League ballparks, I have been fortunate to have visited many of the lost ballparks over my lifetime.

My first ballgame was between the Pirates and Redlegs (as they were known in the 1950s) at old Crosley Field in Cincinnati in 1953, the Redlegs winning 9-2. The following year my family moved to the Washington, DC area and I saw my first of many games at Griffith Stadium. Two games really stand out in my memory. The first one was in 1956 between the…

Good start to 2013

Well 2 weeks into the season and have had an oppurtunity to get to 3 parks between April 4th and April 9th. Started off the trip in Chicago on April 4th at US Cellular (first time at this park). Then followed it up with Mets game at Citi Field on April 7th and then again seeing the Mets in Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park. Working on next trip but may just go to a few minor league parks during a long weekend.
