My #SeeAll30 Summer trip to all 30 MLB Ballparks...

Here are a few stats about my trip from this season:

30 games in 30 parks, 366 singles by 202 different players (most: 8 by Pedroia of BOS), 103 doubles by 88 different players (most: 3 by Saunders of SEA), 12 triples by 12 different players, 63 HR's by 50 different players (most: 5 by Saltalamacchia of BOS) all producing a total of 288 runs. I saw 2 Grand Slams: 1 by Youkilis (BOS), ironically against the team he would later be traded to (CHW) & 1 by Reddick (Oak - his 1st career…

My SeeAll30 Summer... in jeopardy?!?

Was talking to my boss yesterday and he now says that he would prefer to send me to work in New Mexico in December instead of August.  This would completely screw me for my SeeAll30 Summer.  After getting pissy about this for a while, my wife tells me, "You should still go". I asked her, "What?" "You need to complete this, you are so close.  Just go", she says.  ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!  Man I love this woman!  After trying to work out the schedule to go sooner (so I would have more…

Possible games for me this summer... EDIT: 3/30/2012

I **AM** going to New Mexico and he agreed to the timing of August 20-24 for me to be working there!  So, it's OFFICIAL, I *AM* gonna make a run at all 30 this season!  Now I just need Chuck's schedule to go smoothly, or for him to have make up games where I need to pick up games as well and all will be golden!



Time to SEEALL30(.com)! :)

In addition to going out on the road with Chuck Booth next month, I have a possibility…

"Wasted Trip"... NO MORE! :)

So after some research and coming up with a way to present it to my wife that made sense, I can say that my "Wasted Trip" is wasted no more! I talked my wife into letting me fly back East a few days ahead of her. In doing so I will make a stop in Minneapolis (actually in and out of Milwaukee, even with the added gas fee, cause I would have got a car anyway, it was still about $100 cheaper) on my way to Baltimore. In MPLS I will catch 2 games at Target Field, July 18th & 19th (vs the White… Continue

Wasted Trip?

So every trip I do is booked around the MLB schedule (this annoys my wife, but are you kidding me? Of course I am going to consult the schedules). However, a trip I will be doing in July, well, I don't wanna call it a "Wasted Trip", but it sure is a big ole bummer. See, my nephew Sean is getting married to his amazing fiance Nicole on July 23rd in Mystic, CT. My brothers kids are as close as I will ever come to having kids, so when Sean called me to tell me he was getting married and asked me… Continue

I'm going back to Cali...

So the wife and I planned a trip to Disneyland with some friends and their kids for this coming August. Over the past week or so I have been looking into driving to LA, even if just by myself. As it turns out, I will be going solo. That worries me not. If you're gonna be driving and you're gonna be in town when there are games being played, seems silly not to take in said games, yeah? I FULLY AGREE! So here is what I am looking at:



August 17th:
Depart Lacey, WA @ 4am (no later… Continue

Our New 2010 Road Trip Schedule....

2010 Road Trip planned!!

Since MLB announced their 2010 schedules the week of September 15th, it was time for all of us "Ball Park Geeks" to sit down and start planning our 2010 Baseball Road Trips. 2010 will be very different than I had originally pictured it. I only need to pick up Target Field in Minneapolis to (re)complete having seen all 30 current MLB ballparks. I had planned a quick run over to Minnesota for a game, or two, then back home. I got to talking to Chuck Booth about it a while ago and we decided to… Continue

Hi! My name is Ken and I'm a ballpark addict!

They say that admitting you have a problem is the first step on your way to recovery. Well, I have been an addict for years and I don't see my "problem" going away any time soon. Just last night I commented to my wife, as we watched "I Survived A Japanese Game Show", "It would be fun to go to Tokyo, we could catch a game at the Tokyo Dome!"



My addiction started so innocently. It was 1977 and after a few months of listening to Seattle Mariner games on radio (as they were only on TV… Continue
