How I Became a Corporate Sell Out at Miller Park



I guess this is what it feels like to sell out. I vowed I would never let this happen, but it did. I was in the Milwaukee area for work and had the opportunity to attend the Brewers/Mets game from the Dew Deck at Miller Park. And I wore slacks to the ballgame. …

US Cellular Field review

Well, I'm a White Sox fan, so this may not be an accurate source. But my opinion: The Cell is a charm. Not as friendly as the cross-town rivals' park (so friendly its nickname is "The Friendly Confines"), but the park has a claim to fame: The FUNdamentals Deck. I've been there and I raced the Scott Posednik cutout. I was winning, but he sped up to win, but it was close that contest. Then, I played some video games. Turns out my then-favorite player Alexei Ramirez was at bat in MLB 2K-something.… Continue

The Washington Post has a great article today that highlights the life of a starting pitcher. Details some of the stuff that happens on the days between starts. It's a great read:

Our 2014 SoCal Baseball Trip

We just returned from a family trip to Southern California that included visits to Disneyland, Hollywood, Sequoia National Park, the San Diego Zoo and, of course, ballparks!

Angels Stadium

On Tuesday, July 8th, we attended the Angels and Blue Jays game at Angel Stadium. Upon entering at the main gate, the two massive Angels hats are even bigger in person than they look. We loved the fact that there was the MLB…

What About the Little Guy?

As we prepare to enter the All-Star Break, the table is set once again for the pinnacle exhibition of the mid-season sabbatical for 95% of MLB’s paid performers: The Home Run Derby.

Just as high-speed collisions are to NASCAR spectators, baseball fans love the long ball. While the format of this statistically meaningless display of baseball’s feats of strength continues to evolve, it continues to entertain the masses through psychological bliss that parallels that of weekend duck…

My Take on Wrigley Field

A few years back I created a sports "bucket list" (and for me there are a lot of things I want to do before I "sign off" on this Earth), and while I did not list by "priority" without question if I did, going to Wrigley Field is at the top or near the top of my bucket list.  

I think anybody who saw the Cubs on WGN as a kid would remember the scenes of that park, whether it was seeing the ivy-covered wall, the manual scoreboard, panning the front of the park with the famed…

North Carolina

Great NC trip last week. Lucking out on weather and scheduling, caught 10 games in 7 days - every minor league team in the state (plus Danville, VA, right over the border).  Charlotte's new stadium is top-10, Hickory, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and Durham parks are all top rate, and the others are all terrific and enjoyable places to watch a ballgame.
