The Latest From ballpark Insider - Mohegan Sun Block

It's difficult to explain how a new stadium that cost $1,500,000,000 could still have obstructed view seating.

It was only discovered after the fact that the new Yankee Stadium has a major design flaw. The Mohegan Sun Sports Bar that takes up the batter's eye in center field is a rectangular building placed smack in the outfield bleachers. As a result, people sitting in the wrong parts of Sections 201 and 239 may have of a portion of the field blocked from view by a bar for people… Continue

9 Down - Big Weekend Ahead

Hey Chasers - hope everyone is enjoying the season to date. I have now been to 9 ballparks this summer on my way to all 30. This weekend is Comerica on Saturday, Rogers Centre on Sunday and PNC on Monday. If anyone will be at those games please shoot me a message and we can meet for a beer or 3.

I also would like to thank our fearless leader Craig and fellow Ballpark Chaser Dutch for their most generous donations to Shawn Marie's Memorial Fund. It is truly great the support that all… Continue

Ken Burns Baseball, The Tenth Inning

I was really excited to read this article about Ken Burns making another documentary about baseball. The article says he is making a 4-hour special on PBS about the last 16 years in Major League Baseball. I am really looking forward to this. Anyone else see "Baseball"?

College World Series

Has anyone ever been to the College WS in Omaha? I was hoping to go check it out sometime in the future, just to say that I've been there/ done that. Just wondering if it's worth it based on any past experiences. If and when I go, I will have to make sure that my alma mater, LB State, is in it. That way I will have someone to really cheer for.

Back to Nationals Park

I have been to all the current ballparks except Target Field and Chase Field. Next Friday May 21st I will be attending the Baltimore Orioles @ Washington Nationals game. I know the Nats are playing well but the ticket prices were more than I would have expected for a team that has been worst in baseball the past two seasons. I got 4 tix in the lower UD between 3rd and LF for a reasonable $25/ticket. This will be my second trip to Nationals Park. I attended a game there back in 2008 when it… Continue

Hi I'm Sharon from South Central PA. I live in Phillies country but am a Mets fan. I never lived in NY. I guess I like the Mets because my Dad was rooting for the "underdog" in the 1969 World Series. I was 8. I don't remember much about baseball before that. So Dad and I shared that experience and then we sent for yearbooks and such. It was fun pouring over them and collecting baseball cards. I probably had an early Nolan Ryan card! I loved a bumper sticker I saw a few years ago. It said "I… Continue

Game 4: Citi Field

My first visit to City Field was very fun. My girlfriend and I decided to take the bus there and back on the same day and that worked out great. We got to New York with enough time to grab some food and head to the park and it was pretty easy to get to the stadium by train.

Johan Santana was pitching for the Mets so I was really looking forward to this game. I had been to Shea Stadium before but this was my first time seeing the new stadium. I really like it, it reminded of Camden… Continue

5 Down - 25 To Go

The Quest to get to all 30 ballparks this season has gotten off to a great start. First on the schedule was opening night at Fenway Park followed the next afternoon at Turner Field where I saw my beloved Cubs get smacked around by the Braves in the season opener for both teams.

I have also been to the Trop, Progressive Field and Citizen's Bank Park where Travis and Joey (the 30 ballpark 30 days guys) joined me at the the Marlins - Phillies game. It was great hanging out with them and… Continue

Game 3: Homecoming (of sorts)

What a crazy weekend! between the failed car bombing, the oil spills in the gulf and a busted pipe that left Bostonians without water for days, it seem like the bad news would not end. On the positive side, i flew to New Hampshire this weekend to spend some well needed time with family and to make my first journey to Fenway Park.

Even though i grew up a Yankees fan, I have been watching Fenway Park in awe for years. I have always found the design of the park so unique and memorable.… Continue
