I'm heading out to stadiums #20 and 21 for this year. Going to watch the Astros then Rangers. Any "absolute have to do's"? For a family?

I just completed a trip to the Rust Belt with my brother for stadiums #5-#8. We thought the trip was going to be our worst one, but we were pleasantly surprised. Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are all very nice cities.
We found the best BBQ chicken we've ever had at Red Smoke BBQ in Detroit's Greektown. It was moist, well seasoned, and out of this world when paired with their cherry molasses BBQ sauce.
In Cleveland we stayed at the Drury Inn Downtown. Drury Inns…Continue
I was in Dallas for business before the season started and got to take a tour of Globe Life Park.

Saw my last 5 MLB ballparks this week on the East Coast. Have now been to all 30 of the current MLB ballparks. Visited 27 of them in the last two seasons. Had a great time and met some great people along the way. Caught two foul balls this season, definitely a highlight. Went to my first Stadium Opener in Atlanta. Now it's time to start tackling the MiLB. Have only seen 6 of those so far so I have a long way to go. Hopefully bump into some more Chasers and Stampeders along the way,
Here are some pictures of my recent trip to see the Beloit Snappers, Single A affiliate of the Oakland A's.

I went to my first ever Major League Baseball game with my mom. I suppose it is appropriate, then, that for the first game of this trip, I went with my mom. Here we are by the old Home Run Apple from Shea Stadium, which sits out front of the stadium.
The Mets pay homage to the old Shea stadium in a number of places. There are plaques in the parking lot…Continue

I am not sure when I first got the idea. Probably in late high school or early college. It wasn't a sudden realization, more of a slow dawning.
I want to see a baseball game at every Major League Baseball stadium.
Maybe it was because my first game was at Wrigley Field. I walked out into the stands and thought, "What beautiful wonder is this, with pristine green grass and ivy covered walls under wide open blue sky?" (Actually, I was seven or eight;…Continue

This is a wall in my office that my wife created showing me at all of the current ballparks, plus a couple more (Riverfront Stadium & Candlestick Park). I just replaced Turner Field with Sun Trust Park.

Cold and blustery night. Ridiculous weather delays. Got little sleep. Totally worth it.

In 2013 I completed one of my bucket list items of going to all of the MLB ballparks. Fenway Park was the only one I hadn't taken my picture at, so we went back there in 2015, took the tour and had our picture taken.
Now with the Braves opening Sun Trust Park next month, I just got tickets to opening day. Looking forward to seeing another new ballpark!
Looking forward to a trip 3 weeks away, heading to Phoenix where a group of 4 buddies are meeting up, and I will be hitting four "firsts":
1) NCAA Final Four! Sorry, not baseball related, but I've been to 7-8 1st/2nd rounds of the NCAA Tourney, but never a Final 4! Was lucky enough to get tickets this year, after many unsuccessful attempts.
2) Spring Training! We will catch 2, possibly 3 games, as follows:
- 3/30 12:10 Rockies @ Padres at Peoria Stadium
My son and I always compete to see how many triple peanuts we can get out of a bag at the games we go to. There was a game I went to without him so I took a photo of my triple to send him in the name of good-natured taunting.
Here is a collection of my triples since that time - hope you enjoy!
45 MLB ballparks under my belt, twice in my life I've been to all current. 4 more makes it 3! Flying out to Minneapolis, New York then Miami to make it to the round number of 49... Looks like I'll have to wait for Atlanta's opening in 2017 to make it to 50. Wave if you see me!

Chaser places to go would be a little bar at Jack London Square called,"Heinolds First and Last Bar. You can drink your beers outside in the sand patio and the bar itself is one of a kind.. Fun super little place and not all that far from the stadium.
