My wife and I just completed our 4th summer baseball road trip together and our 1st with our daughter Megan (born in February.) We had a great time seeing my Mets play at Nationals Park and Citizen's Bank and seeing Steph's Yanks at Camden Yards. It was our first trip to Nationals Park and Camden Yards and we have high opinions of both. All three parks were especially accommodating with a 6 month old, especially in (although I hate to say it) Philadelphia. Not sure where next year will take…Continue

My 2014 baseball journey was a 6 day, 8 stadium journey to witness 9 games. Starting on June 27th and ending July 3rd, a total of 14 teams were seen during the trip.
Friday, June 27th- Angels at Royals. Late to the game, ended up missing Trout's 490 foot home run in the top of the 1st. Still kicking myself over that
Saturday, June 28th- Rays at Orioles. Highlight of the game was sneaking into the section behind the plate during the 4th inning after purchasing 13 dollar upper…Continue
I was up in San Francisco for work this weekend and was staying in Alameda so I decided to see the Giants game Friday night. I caught the ferry across, which worked out perfectly, no parking issues, no traffic problems at all! The game was good (but the Giants lost in the 10th) and the park was awesome, but chilly! I also met some really awesome people waiting for the ferry back.
I have two stadiums left for this year (Dodger Stadium and Angel Stadium). I am going to the Angels game…Continue

It's that time of year again. After my very fun and busy Florida road trip last year (20 games in 12 days!), I am scaling it back a bit and only going to 6 games in 5 days. I am leaving on Wednesday and will be going to see the White Sox, Brewers and Cubs and minor league games in Beloit, South Bend and Kane County (Cubs and Kane County will be on the same day). I am also doing a stadium tour of Wrigley on the day my trip ends, since the Cubs will be on the road that day and, according to…Continue

Just got back from an 15 game 11 park trip through the midwest and east coast. Out of the old parks I much preferred Fenway to Wrigley. Out of the new parks I felt Camden Yards was a notch above the rest. The city experience I enjoyed the most was staying in Manhattan and taking the subway to 2 Mets and 2 Yankees games. The park I was most dissapointed in was PNC in Pittsburgh just because of the high expectations I had. The park was great when you were in your seats but the concourses were…Continue

In my quest to hit every ballpark, I am also trying to eat the ballpark signature food at each stadium. I've done my homework on most stadiums, gotten some good suggestions from people (Kurt Smith's E-Guides), and ventured out and sampled some. I try to get something different if I go back to a park I have already been to. I am again ask the you the readers to help me out with suggestions on what to get, things you like, or things you have heard to get.
I have just returned from…Continue
