Game 2 - San Francisco

The SF Giants were among the 20+ ballclubs that donated tickets to the thirty27 project. They didn't give up cheapies either, sitting the thirty27 team in the 3rd row behind the Giants' bullpen mound. ****



Game notes from SF....

----Edgar Renteria (my main man from Colombia and my AL all-star vote getter), tallied his 2,000th career hit.

----Marcus Thames blasted a 450ft homerun.

----This was Josh's first visit to AT&T… Continue

Media frenzy begins early for the thirty27.com team

Josh and the thirty27 team were swarmed early last night, interviewing with KOMO tv in Seattle. Josh talked about the trip and all the pretzels he'll be eating along the way. Josh is known to survive on an all-carb and grain diet.

Some game notes from Seattle....

--Josh was nearly ejected from the stadium after being accused of videotaping game action by a security guard.

--Then in the fifth inning, it was actually thirty27… Continue

Opening Night

Josh arrived in Seattle, WA by plane on Sunday morning. He will not get on another plane until he has seen a game at all 30 ballparks in a record-setting 26 days, starting tonight at Safeco Field. He met Ken, the first of many people who will join him on this quest. They picked up their sweet rental car, a Pontiac Grand Am I believe (sorry guys, but Pontiacs are girls cars, it's a fact), and will be using this rental car to drive to each ballpark.



During my pre-trip interview with… Continue

Chasing History

Since I am new to this site I will provide some background about my ballpark chase.



I have always been a baseball fan, but the idea of seeing all 30 Major League ballparks didnt cross my mind until a road trip to Minneapolis with 3 friends in August of 1995. Hey what a great idea! Its taken many years to do this but I have to arrange trips around work! I also have put together a scrapbook that contains pictures of each park and city, a game ticket, team schedule, and photo of each… Continue

A DAY TO REMEMBER By: Bill Chuck

I returned to the place of my birth yesterday. Not my actual birth, my baseball birth. The place of actual birth was a hospital that doesn’t exist any more across the street from the Madison Square Garden that doesn’t exist any more. Soon, this Yankee Stadium, the home of my baseball birth won’t exist any more either.





I shed no tears. I was there with my wife, the Boston Red Sox fan (we live two miles from Fenway Park), my eldest daughter, who now lives in the City, and my… Continue

Woody Paige's Idea: Pick a letter: pick an all-star team

This idea comes from sportswriter Woody Paige. Pick a letter of the alphabet, and then pick players whose last names start with that letter, and form your all-star team.

For example: let's use letter M.

Mickey Mantle
Roger Marris
Joe Morgan….

Take it from there!

A six-year-old's Introduction to Baseball

I spent my childhood in two places: up until I was five years old, we lived in Lyons Colorado; then from five years old on up and, I lived in Longmont Colorado. Both sets of grandparents lived in Brush, Colorado when I was a child. Periodically, just like every other family, we would make the pilgrimage 90 miles northeast to Brush to see Grandma and Grandpa. My grandpa Biggin grew up in Cassville, Wisconsin and my grandpa Sears grew up in Springfield, Illinois, so they were both huge Cubs fans,… Continue
