In 2013 I completed one of my bucket list items of going to all of the MLB ballparks. Fenway Park was the only one I hadn't taken my picture at, so we went back there in 2015, took the tour and had our picture taken.
Now with the Braves opening Sun Trust Park next month, I just got tickets to opening day. Looking forward to seeing another new ballpark!
Looking forward to a trip 3 weeks away, heading to Phoenix where a group of 4 buddies are meeting up, and I will be hitting four "firsts":
1) NCAA Final Four! Sorry, not baseball related, but I've been to 7-8 1st/2nd rounds of the NCAA Tourney, but never a Final 4! Was lucky enough to get tickets this year, after many unsuccessful attempts.
2) Spring Training! We will catch 2, possibly 3 games, as follows:
- 3/30 12:10 Rockies @ Padres at Peoria Stadium
My son and I always compete to see how many triple peanuts we can get out of a bag at the games we go to. There was a game I went to without him so I took a photo of my triple to send him in the name of good-natured taunting.
Here is a collection of my triples since that time - hope you enjoy!
45 MLB ballparks under my belt, twice in my life I've been to all current. 4 more makes it 3! Flying out to Minneapolis, New York then Miami to make it to the round number of 49... Looks like I'll have to wait for Atlanta's opening in 2017 to make it to 50. Wave if you see me!

Chaser places to go would be a little bar at Jack London Square called,"Heinolds First and Last Bar. You can drink your beers outside in the sand patio and the bar itself is one of a kind.. Fun super little place and not all that far from the stadium.

I am planning on the Diamondback game on July 19. Is anyone else available to join me? I am travelling by myself to Phoenix. I also need suggestions for where to park (are there shuttles?) and if it is possible to move from 1 level of the stadium to another. Some stadiums, such as White Sox and Dodgers, you cannot get from 1 level to another. Most stadiums you can move levels, and if by yourself usually can upgrade to a better seat. Also is Stubhub/Ticket Monster, etc., the best place to get…Continue

I have been to 22 of the 30 current MLB ballparks but have enjoyed the national past time at 38 parks. Huh?, you ask. I have been to 1096 regular season or playoff games (I don't count spring training) and have retained the ticket stubs for all of them. Some of these games are at stadii and parks that are only memories or if you're lucky, these sights of ancient gatherings have a marker, a plaque, or part of the structure still standing. Montreal's Stade Olympique , the Houston Astrodome,…Continue

I am excited to be going to three ballparks in three days with my Dad: Detroit, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. It will be great time with my Dad and I will get to cross off three new ballparks. I used a ton of useful info from Ballpark Chasers to plan the trip.
I'm just getting started here, and have plans to start a blog of my own about all things as a stay at home dad. One part of this blog is the quest my son and I am on to visit all the ball parks.
We don't plan on doing them all this year, or the year after. We hopefully have a very long time to complete our quest.
I used to travel on business before my wife and I decided to have kids and I started to stay home to raise my family. Usually when I would visit a new…

We have 23 out of 30 MLB parks in the bag now. We take a Jay Buckley trip next week and will get 5 more.
The field may be new, but the team, of course, is not. My son Frank and I have been to several games at Wrigley, but we’ve never been to US Cellular Field. My boyfriend John and his daughter joined us for this chilly spring game.
We drove all day to make it to Chicago for a 7:05 game on a Friday night. I was a little anxious about our arrival time due to…Continue
