All of us who are chasing after the "final ballpark" have a stash of giveaway items or things we caught at the games. Combined my son and I have about 10 footlockers full of stuff (which I'll probably giveaway at some point). I'd like to see a list of your favorite items you've received from games and your least favorite. You can even add items you got at other sports stadiums as well.

I am posting this on behalf of my new baseball friend, Reggie Deal, whom I met via this website. Reggie is blind and has trouble posting to this site so I am doing that for him

We had great seats, right behind home plate, however, it was 12:30 on a Wednesday afternoon...…Continue

I grew up initially with the cavernously grotesque Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, rooting for the inept Indians teams of the mid to late 80s. The only saving grace was, I was young enough that even though I knew they were awful, I loved baseball enough that it didn't matter. I could go to a game and then make believe in my back yard for hours about…Continue
My wife and I just returned from our 2012 baseball road trip in time to go back to work. This time I can honestly say that we enjoyed Wrigley Field the best. Of the parks we visited for the first time (Atlanta, Houston, Texas, Denver and Kansas City) we agreed that we enjoyed Kaufman Stadium the most.
