UPDATED BALLPARK RANKINGS FOR BASEBALL NOVEL

NEW OFFICIAL BALLPARK CHASER RANKINGS



I am writing the novel as we speak and it donned on me to change the rankings because of the NEW/OLD YANKEE STADIUM differential when you put the rankings of the NEW PARK as opposed to the old STADIUM. THE YANKEE STADIUM that closed in 2008 would have ranked 2nd overall-instead NEW YANKEE STADIUM will get the ranking of 13th overall as rated on by 15 chasers rankings who have been to all of the parks.

BALLPARK EATS, IN, OUT, OR AROUND THE GOOD OLD YARD

Hey everyone !!! It's been awhile since I've been here. As for my Dodgers, it hasn't been quite the year I was expecting. Anyways, as we all know, especially you fellow ballpark chaser, food, especially road eats, is as much a part of our national pastime as the great game of baseball. And lately, I've been snapping some shots of some good eating, be it in, out, around the old yard, and be it before, during, or after the game. So I thought I'd share with you some pics that I added in a new… Continue

Looking for Cleveland fans to attend a game

Hi all,

I'm going to be in Cleveland this weekend, and I'd like to check Progressive Field off my list of ballparks to visit. I'm planning to go to the Sunday afternoon game (8/15). Is anybody in the area going to the game? Any suggestions on where to get seats? I'm from San Diego, so I'm used to getting tickets fairly easily. Is that the case in Cleveland too?

It's very educational & entertaining.

I think it's a must see for all ballpark chasers especially those who haven't been to every park yet.

I'm in replay mode these days.

I got to Target Field to give me 56 major league parks total.

Thank you.

Yours truly,

Gary Herman
