It has been quite an eventful year since I signed up for Ballpark Chasers last year. I have been visiting out of town stadiums off and on since 1985 and while my count steadily climbed, I never completed all parks in MLB.
This year, on August 18, I completed that goal with a visit to Safeco Field, the last place I hadnt been. With that game, I have now visited all 30 parks in MLB and 36 in total, including those that are no more.
I had a very aggressive travel schedule this…Continue

With a visit to Great American Ballpark this past weekend I am officially at 15 current parks and halfway to 30. I even saw my first AAA game in Columbus on Thursday night.
I guess I was a chaser even before I knew that's what it is.…Continue

Flew out of Newark at 6AM, landed in Miami (MIA) at 9. Had some chow, killed time with a book until 10:30, then headed for the ballpark. From MIA, look for signs for the MIA Mover and Metrorail. In most cases you will take an elevator up to level three, then follow signs to the MIA…Continue

"Turn out the lights, the party's over", the famous tune Dandy Don Meredith would croon on the old Monday Night Football broadcasts as the game wound down. For me, unfortunately the same is true, as the baseball travel season is over and I start back to work on Thursday. So for my last call of the summer, I travelled to upstate NY, on the way visiting Great American Ballpark for the second time, and making stops at Canal Park (Akron), Classic Park (Eastlake OH), Jerry Uht Park (Erie),…Continue
