Marlins Park August 2015

Finally got to Marlins Park this month, and liked it a lot. We took a trip down to Miami for an overnight just to get to the park - although stayed in South Beach so did an Art Deco walking tour as well, absolutely worthwhile. I saw what I figured must be Marlins Park from the air as we were coming in for landing, and confirmed in the taxi on the way there that yes, that is what I saw. We thought it was big and flashy, and while it would look awful just about anywhere else, was absolutely…

Summer 2015 - Ranking the Ballparks

So I've now been to 13 current MLB parks. I thought I'd try to rank them in this post. I'm not going to include Citi Field because I went in 2010, before I became a true "chaser." So there will be 12. I had a good time at each park and would go back to any of them, I just like some more than others. Bear with me, this is long - I bolded the parks if you just want to quickly see my rankings w/o all the commentary.

12. US Cellular Field (went once, in 2013). Easy to get…

Summer 2015 Ballpark Chasing, Pt. 2 - Chase Field

After the 2 games at Wrigley, I figured my next ballpark would be Chase Field in Phoenix, just after the All Star Break. I wanted to find out something about the park first, and that's when I came across Ballpark Chasers. This site has turned out to be an incredible resource!

In 2012, I was at a Tigers game with my dad when he asked me if I was going to try to get to all 30 MLB parks. That's when the idea started to really appeal to me. We had been to a few when I was a kid and I had…

Summer 2015 Ballpark Chasing

I recently got back from an awesome road trip in which I drove about 7,000 miles total. I visited a lot of friends and family, saw and did some incredible things, and of course, went to a bunch of different ballparks.

Coming into this year, I had seen 8 current MLB parks and no current minor league ones, plus 4 defunct MLB parks and 1 defunct MiLB park. On my trip I saw a total of 11 games in 10 different parks - 8 MLB, 2 MiLB. Of these, 5 of the MLB parks were new to me and both MiLB…

Any advice for a destination plan?

So I have seen now six ball parks where my beloved Redsox played in. I am wanting to see though if anyone has advice on what they do to see their games? Do you have certain cities in order? Do you go to certain ballparks due to vicinity or cost? My next stop will be Toronto next year. Then perhaps try to finish off all east coast in NY, Atlanta, Ohio's two, and Tampa bay. Sure would be open to any advice.

Ballpark 4!

Visited Wrigley (2nd time for me, first for the wife and kids) on Saturday. We sat low in the upper deck, as far right as you can go. Here's my thoughts:

-Sound is not great - could hear all of the players names, but if they played music or other things, I couldn't hear what they were saying.

-New video boards. I have seen the stadium before and after, and I have no problem with them. Since my seats did not have the best sight lines, it was nice to have the boards for a replay of a…
