We have plans to hit 3 parks on the east coast (from Arizona) in June....what's everyone thinking? Should I cancel the trip while I can probably get my money back? Do you think MLB will even play this year? I know everything will be speculation up to this point but I'm anxious. I personally think, and I think I've heard this on ESPN, is that they will try to make up as many games as they have missed with double headers. I don't know how that would affects tickets I have in June....
No 7th inning orange wedges here. It's time to bring back the real intentional walk.There is simply too much that can happen in a pro baseball situation to have a rule that allows someone to be waived on to first base. A wild pitch can allow a runner to move up. An accidental pitch across the plate can be hit out of the ballpark. Let's play big boy baseball.

Finally adding some new ballparks! I am tentatively planning to take a quick trip with a friend, with not much time for other stuff, but we plan to catch these games this summer:
7/1 1:05 Yankees at Orioles
7/2 12:05 PM Padres at Phillies
7/3 6:05 PM Astros at Nationals
These will be new stadiums for me. I've been to the old Memorial stadium (Baltimore) several times when I lived in the DC area, 1986-1990, but that was before Camden Yards, and…Continue

I'm planning on visiting Kansas City this summer for the Indians games in early June. Do they allow tailgating in the parking lots outside of Kauffman? It doesn't look like there are many bars/restaurants to walk to before the game, but I might be completely wrong.

Finished a half lap this past year 16 parks in 7 and a half weeks. Took my time and saw some truly amazing games this year. was at the game in Houston that saw the little girl hit by a line drive foul to start the tour. then to a rain out in St. Louis. 2 three run home runs but the same batter with the exact same players on the same bases! Deja Vu! In Colorado saw a 37 run game with more home runs than I can count. (Record for most home runs in a regular season MLB game) June 16th what a…Continue

Looking forward to meeting everyone in July Looking for Tom ______ that I met in Cleburne Tx. last spring. Went down and saw the Saints throw a no-hitter. Tom, if you read this, give me a holler!!
Story of a ten-year push...
2009: Son is 10, and we decide to go for it! Two home games: Home opener in SF, and Oakland, always a good start
2010: On the road--fly to San Diego, motorcar up to Anaheim and then Dodger Stadium LA Dodgers (vs SF, many friendly SF faces sitting nearby). High point: snagging a foul tip in LA, pitched by Mad Bum himself. Even higher point--I caught it after next-seat neighbor bobbled it and gave me an easy grab. Perhaps if he hadn't been so…Continue

Hi! I’m heading to Coors Field and I am interested to know what pizza place has the best pizza in Idaho Springs? I saw the suggestion on the chaser guide. Can anyone help?

At GeoJango Maps, we love everything baseball related. That's why it's no coincidence that we offer a large variety of baseball stadium maps to help our customers celebrate their ballpark memories.
Earlier this month we launched a giveaway where one lucky person was destined to win a free baseball stadium map. In…Continue

This is our ranking of ballparks we have visited. We will edit this list after each trip. Also, this only includes the game and not other activities around the park. Also, we will only rank parks we see as a group where an Indian are the visiting team (Maybe a little hometown bias putting Progressive Field #1 for all 3 of us).
Since the latest game that I attended was so exciting, I wanted to share my latest post on my blog coryattheballpark:
PNC Park in Pittsburgh, which opened in 2001, is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful ballparks…Continue

Has anyone been to the new Dunkin' Donuts Park in Hartford? I went last week and it is gorgeous, in my top-20. Also took in a game in wonderful McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, which is still one of the top places (top-10?) to see a game; after 75 years it holds up better than most parks, though the rumors strongly suggest the team might move. If so, hopefully another team can make use of this wonderful facility - tearing it down would be a sin. BTW, caught parts of 4 games in the Cape Cod…Continue

Having missed seeing a game in Monterrey, Mexico, when MLB last played there in 1999, I was determined not to make up for that this time around. I contacted the nominal home team, the San Diego Padres, who were very kind and helpful in my obtaining a ticket. I flew to Houston from NJ on…Continue

Just got finished with Chase Field.
I ended up staying in the Arts District midtown area at the Wyndham Garden Midtown on North Second Street. Although the hotel itself is very dated and needs a bit of a face-lift, the people were nice and very helpful. The rooms are satisfactory. Nothing special. Lower end on the pride too. I paid about $100 per night.
However, the reason I recommend this hotel, and more specifically this area near Central Avenue is the ease of use of the…Continue
