Quest Complete!!!

This past Saturday at Sun Life Stadium I completed for the 2nd year in a row the Quest of getting to a regularly schedule game at all 30 MLB ballparks in one season.

This season for me was all about raising awareness and funds for the SADS Foundation in memory of my wife Shawn Marie. I had set a goal of $10,000 for the summer and with the corporate sponsors we are currently at $18,300 and will top $20,000 in the coming days. The highlight of the summer happened not at a MLB ballpark,… Continue

5 Down - 25 To Go

The Quest to get to all 30 ballparks this season has gotten off to a great start. First on the schedule was opening night at Fenway Park followed the next afternoon at Turner Field where I saw my beloved Cubs get smacked around by the Braves in the season opener for both teams.

I have also been to the Trop, Progressive Field and Citizen's Bank Park where Travis and Joey (the 30 ballpark 30 days guys) joined me at the the Marlins - Phillies game. It was great hanging out with them and… Continue

Special Weekend

I have attached the link to my website that has details on the memorial fund and a very special photoshow.

This Saturday I will be at Steinbrenner Field to see the… Continue

All 30 in one season - Again

Last season I accomplished the goal of seeing an official MLB game at all 30 MLB ballparks in one season. I met so many wonderful people and had some really great experiences. This season I am going to do all 30 again only I am partnering with the Sudden arrhythmia death syndromes (SADS) foundation in raising awareness as well as money for the Shawn M DeVries Memorial Fund which benefits the SADS foundation. Each year over 350,000 people, many under the age of 30, die from SADS related heart… Continue

Two more to go

This past Friday night I completed the 28th ballpark this season at Fenway. I only have 2 more to go which are Toronto and Citifield which I will get to in a few weeks. Unlike the amazing feat that Chuck Booth and the 30/30 guys did this summer - I decided to take all summer to complete my Quest of seeing all 30 in 1 season. The goal was to be complete by Labor Day so that if I had any rainouts along the way I had the whole month of September to work my back to that city and catch a game. To… Continue
