Chasers

It was about a year ago when I found ballparkchasers.com.  I was sitting in Afghanistan and I had decided that I wanted to not just talk about a dream but be able to come home to the United States and fullfill one.  I did a simple google search and found this community.  It has simply been the most important connection of my entire trip.  Tonight was the most fullfilling experience I've had thus far. 

 

I attended a game at Safeco Field in Seattle.  Through this website I met…

Hi all

So here I am pushing 70, and I finally found something my teen-aged son actually wants to do with me--chase ball parks. We did our two local parks (SF Bay Area) when he was younger, then started doing trips. 2010 was San Diego-Anaheim-LA, then 2011 was SF to Chicago White Sox to Dallas to St. Louis to Philadelphia to Washington to Atlanta to Tampa Bay to Miami back to SF, 8 parks in 12 days. This year we're just now buying tickets, but it looks like SF to Denver to Milwaukee to Baltimore to…

Chasing outside of North America

I've been thinking about chasing ballparks around the world lately. My reasoning behind this is we'll be moving out of the country in Summer 2013 and I still want to see baseball at least somewhere. So my question is this, "does seeing baseball stadiums outside of North America count towards the total?"

Your thoughts?

The Great Baseball Race Blog

Hello Chasers,

 

As baseball fans all across the country, I wanted to share with you a personal project I'm working on this season, aside from hitting a few ballparks of course.

 

I call it the "Great Baseball Race" and with it, I track the ups and downs of the divisional races as a simple line graph. You can see the hot and cold streaks through the weeks and how far back 5.5 games really is.

 

I update it every Monday and would love for yall to check it out…

Today is number 30

Hello fellow chasers!



Hard to believe, but after 614 days, 30,700 miles on 9 trips, we visit Houston today and can say we have hit all the current MLB parks. What an adventure it has been for my Son and I. We have learned so much about how to "get Eric done"!



Our adventure started on July 10, 2010 with a simple text picture. I happened to be in Chicago and instead of sitting in the hotel room, I bought a cheap seat to a White Sox game. I sent Christopher an mms pic. He… Continue

WSJ Article May 3 2012 DC Baseball

Check out today's Wall Street Journal front page piece on DC Nationals restricting ticket sales to DC, Md and Va zips only. Team COO wants an all National fanbase in the ballpark. The funny thing is, the crowd is typically all decked out in red, so you can't tell if its Natl or Philly fans. And the Nats' CFO can't distinguish Nats vs Philly greenbacks in the coffers. Oh! And by the way, Philly Sports Fans are probably the best travelling fan base in the country. Too many work arounds for…
