I am simply amazed by what this guy has done. To see every possible baseball match up, home and away is just unreal! Congratulations to John Salvo and his accomplishments. I wish he was on this site to share his stories. See link below...

Been meaning to post this for a while. I got an email from Chuck that said he wanted to make a few changes to the schedule cause he hates having a day of vacation where he doesn't get to see a game/ball park and I fully agree! So below is our new schedule and a few stats about it...
June 22 – Drive from Lacey to Denver
June 23 – Red Sox vs Rockies @ Coors
June 24 – Red Sox vs Rockies @ Coors
June 25 – Cardinals vs Royals @ Kauffman

As I, an avid Dodger fan, write this, I still fathom the fact that instead of sharing my thoughts at this moment, I could be at Dodger Stadium at this very moment getting ready for Game 6 of the NLCS. But no, it was just not meant to be. And another fun season of Dodgers baseball , for the 2nd straight year, is ended abruptly by the Fightin' Phils. But unlike last year, this one really hurt. Not that last year didnt. No, I did not enjoy the sight of the Phillies celebrating in front of me in… Continue

Family's 30 MLB Ballpark tour benefits the Women’s Sports Foundation's GoGirlGo! Program
Roberto Coquis and Judy Pino visited all 30 MLB ballparks this summer with 8-month old baby, Sofia Coquis, in tow. They dubbed their tour "30 Ballparks and a Baby" and created a website documenting their experiences. During the tour they collected baseball memorabilia from MLB teams and supporters to be auctioned off for charity and have partnered with the Women's Sports Foundation's… Continue

The Big A, a sea of red, rally monkey dolls, thundersticks, a monument to Nick Adenhart, bad umpiring calls, footlong italian sausages, Sabathia's strong 8 innings on 3 days rest, and more. We went to last night's ALCS game and it totally rocked! There were so many of us NY fans throughout the stadium, cheering on Jeter and the boys. The best was seeing most of the depressed Anaheim fans with their annoying thundersticks leave in the 7th inning when the score was 5-1. No rally monkey sightings… Continue

Doesnt mean that I agree with how the economics of baseball are way out of whack. I was talking with a few other Canadians about the MLB and thought of a radical new change in division re-alignment that may finally end the disparity between all ball clubs having a chance to make the playoffs each year. Much like soccer it would kind of be a tier system. Scheduling and travel wise it makes a lot more sense. For those hardcore fans I would also make each team play at least 2 games against every… Continue

I decided to forego the doubleheaders scenario for now to concentrate on the streaks. I will also save the pre-streak writing for the actual novel itself.. Let us get right to the streak chasing because it has the juiciest content by far....
STREAK ATTEMPT 1
GAMES 1 AND 2
MINNESOTA 12:00 PM/CHICAGO WHITE SOX 7:11 PM
METRODOME/US CELLULAR FIELD
The key to making the doubleheader was to have a quick game between Minnesota and… Continue

The Eighth Wonder of the World still stands, though it has seen better days.
The Astros moved downtown and the Texans football team have massive Reliant Stadium, which towers over the first-ever domed stadium.
There’s a lot of Mets history in that dome, including what one author called “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” Game 6 of the 1986 National League playoffs.
So I figured I’d head over and just walk around the outside, taking some photos. The Texans wanted $8… Continue

The dome is like your girlfriend's cat, it's really scratchy but it you have to deal with it.
The dome is like your favorite brand of beer - it tastes great but no one else will even try it.
The dome is like Tim Pawlenty - full of hot air and totally out of work in 2012.
The dome is like your old couch - had some great effing times but now it smells.
The dome is like Kevin Costner - really horrible but associated with baseball… Continue

Time to go on the record with my playoff predictions. I'm kind of rooting for a Dodgers-Angels freeway series but I think we're heading for a Yankees-Cards W.S. and I'm not a fan of either of these teams.
Cards over Dodgers in 4
Phillies over Rockies in 5
Yankees over Twins in 4
Angels over Red Sox in 5
Cards over Phillies in 7
Yankees over Angels 7
Yankees over Cards in 6

I wanted to share a few articles with everyone regarding the end of the Metrodome. Thanks to everyone that have emailed us this week with these links!

Oh it's that most wonderful time of the year again, and I'm not talking about Christmas . Baseball in October !!!! And for the 2nd straight year, the Dodgers find themselves champions of the NL WEST, this time doing it with 95 wins, their most regular season victories since 1985. Ironic because in 1985 it was the Cardinals who would face off against the Dodgers in the NLCS. It was the first time that the LCS had gone to a best of 7 format since it's inception in 1969 when it was best of 5. The… Continue

REMEMBER THESE ARE BASED MOSTLY ON SEEING EVERY PITCH-BUT I HAVE ADDED SOME CLOSE CALLS THAT THOSE NOT LOOKING TO SEE EVERY PITCH BUT KNOCK OFF A STADIUM 2 TIMES PER DAY CAN DO. THESE ARE DOUBLEHEADER POSSIBILITIES I HAVE RESEARCHED. SMALLER AIRPORTS IN A FEW OF THESE DOUBLEHEADERS ARE GOOD BECAUSE SECURITY IS QUICKER IN TINY AIRPORTS WITH ONE OR TWO JETWAYS!!
BOSTON DOUBLE HEADERS PARTNERS ARE: NEW YORK YANKS, METS, BALT, PHILLY
BOSTON 1:05… Continue
