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…

Summer 2015 - Ranking the Ballparks

So I've now been to 13 current MLB parks. I thought I'd try to rank them in this post. I'm not going to include Citi Field because I went in 2010, before I became a true "chaser." So there will be 12. I had a good time at each park and would go back to any of them, I just like some more than others.

In 2012, I was at a Tigers game with my dad when he asked me if I was going to try to get to all 30 MLB parks. That's when the idea started to really appeal to me. We had been to a few when I was a kid and I had…

Summer 2015 Ballpark Chasing

I recently got back from an awesome road trip in which I drove about 7,000 miles total. I visited a lot of friends and family, saw and did some incredible things, and of course, went to a bunch of different ballparks.

Coming into this year, I had seen 8 current MLB parks and no current minor league ones, plus 4 defunct MLB parks and 1 defunct MiLB park. On my trip I saw a total of 11 games in 10 different parks - 8 MLB, 2 MiLB. Of these, 5 of the MLB parks were new to me and both MiLB…
