The 2,000/1,500 club

The 2,000/1,500

There is a club, it is an exclusive club, that has only 28 members but the door to this clubhouse isn't closed. Some of members might surprise you. What might be even more surprising are the names not in this club.

If someone was to ask you to name the 28 members of the 3,000 hit club who would you say first? Babe Ruth? Ted Williams? Barry Bonds? Ken Griffry Jr.? If you said any one of those names you are dead wrong. In fact there are…

Pacific Northwest 2013

Back from a very good trip to the pacific northwest. You could hardly ask for better weather or to see better pitchers. Saw Felix Hernandez pitch for the Mariners vs the Angels last Saturday. I also saw Mark Appel pitch for Stanford at Oregon and Mets pitching prospect Zack Wheeler pitch at Reno. The other Minor league stop (Tacoma) did not have a great pitching prospect, but it was the first time I saw Tim Stauffer(for Tuscon) who played high school ball locally (Saratoga,NY) pitch.

I…

Quick Question

Hey everybody, i just had a quick question. Last Year i made my way out to Chicago where i was about to get some cheap tickets to a white sox game that were in the upper deck. When i got to the stadium i found out that with that ticket i could not go to other levels to walk around. Are there any other stadiums where this is the rule so i can watch out for it in the future. Thank you everyone

30 Stadiums in 55 days

I was just looking at the schedule and just for fun was looking at a time in the schedule where all the east coast teams were all at home this summer. Just for fun, I kept going through the schedule in exact geographical order around the country, basically the route you would take to see all 30 stadiums with NO backtracking. I thought for sure as I kept checking each team that I would eventually hit a point where one team would be gone for at least more than a week and it would put a snag in…

Wrigley Field Renovations

Like many of you, I read the stories about the proposed Wrigley Field renovations today, and while I would miss the experience of seeing baseball played, more or less, the same way as it was 100 years ago without much in the way of advertising, video boards, and other on field promotions, I think these changes make sense for the Cubs.

 

It's interesting to me the negative reaction I'm seeing from alot of Cub fans. I've often thought, in many ways, a large number of Cub fans are…
