Ballpark chasers--A Love Story



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…

Coors Field

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?

What We Learned About Baseball Stadiums

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…

Yard Goats & PawSox

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…

About Me

Hey everyone, I'm Evan, a 25 year old trying to make it to all 30 MLB parks before I reach the age of 30.

I recently just updated it. There you can find my journals, about me, and social media info. Feel free to contact me on there as well.

Click on the "MWBT 2K18" tab to learn about my upcoming ballpark trip in July.

I would love to meet up with a fellow…

Monterrey!

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…

Little Cubs Field - Freeport, Illinois

If you are ever in the Freeport, Illinois area make sure to stop by and take in Little Cubs Field, a scale version of Wrigley Field used for youth baseball games.

It is open to the public so you can also participate in some epic Wiffle Ball action.  I felt 10 years old again!  Check out some photos here: …

Chase Field Accommodation Recommendation

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…

Minor League Parks

Hey everybody, I am new to this website and was curious about the passport program. Do the minor league stadiums have passport stamp locations within them like the MLB teams do? Thanks for the feedback and I'm excited to be a part of the group!

Heading to Great American Ballpark

My group and I will be heading to Cincinnati this summer and we will be staying near the ballpark. I'm wondering if the easiest/cheapest way from the airport  to downtown would be an Uber or taxi seeing as how there will be seven of us. Also we usually walk to most places around the area so I'm looking for some good sport bars or restaurants close by, and does anyone know  if the places I've seen on the Kentucky side are accessible by walking? Thanks in advance.

What counts?

Do you have qualifications for what constitutes as "visiting a ballpark"? I saw a college football game at Yankee Stadium in 2010 (ND vs. Army). I counted this with the reasoning being that it was a major sporting event, was a few hours long and had a huge crowd. Just curious what others' thoughts are on this subject.

Hitting the Road with my Dad

My dad and I are taking a baseball road trip Wed-Sat of this week, I can't wait.  It was actually about 5 years ago that my dad asked me if I was going to try to go to all of the MLB stadiums at some point.  I had always liked going to different stadiums when I could but I had never made a point of traveling just to see stadiums or thought of seeing all 30 as a goal.  At the time, I had seen I believe 5 of the current stadiums.

So, we'll be starting in Chicago to see the Dodgers play…

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?

Rust Belt

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…
