All 30 MLB Completed

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…

Half Way There!

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.…

My Journey

I started this journey in 2006 without really knowing at the time that I would aspire to see every stadium in the MLB. I've always been a huge fan of baseball and played little league on up to sophomore year of high school, but I never thought of going to see all 30 as that's quite a huge undertaking especially for a kid brought up in a rural area with no access to pro parks whatsoever. However my first baseball game would change all that. I remember watching the local news on my cousin's couch… Continue

Chasing in Japan

Alright baseball chaser folks I accidentally ran into something with Meg Minard's help (Thanks Meg!). While doing some research on sites in Japan I came across the Japanese Wikipedia version of the "List of Japanese Baseball Stadiums". Now before you get to the link let me explain a couple of things about translations.

In Japan there are two leagues that can be classified like major and minor in baseball leagues we frequent. In Japan the Major league or commonly known as NPB (divided…

Day Trip to Marlins Park

Had a successful trip to Marlins Park yesterday and got my ballpark total up to 66, where it's likely to stay for some time until the A's build a new park or MLB schedules more games in foreign venues.

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…

Last Call for 2012

"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),…
