It's not over until it's over...or is it?

June 23, 2011: Attended the last game of the Mariners vs. Nationals series, a game that the Nats came into with a cool .500 record.  Here was their chance to break into a winning record, something they have not done since 2005.

 

The game went into the 9th tied at 0. Laynce Nix pinched hit for Pitcher Tyler Clippard and hit a sacrifice fly to left field scoring…

Sofia just turned two a couple of months ago and today she attended to her first MLB Opening Day.



I knew this Opening Day experience was going to be unique. The weather in DC has finally started to warm up after some crazy spring snow fell last week. Sofia has been begging to go the park every day. This morning I asked her if she meant to say the baseball park and in she confirmed in spanish that yes she wanted to visit the baseball park: "parque...parque de beisbol!" (We are really… Continue

Washington, DC (March 31, 2011) - Washington Nationals Opening Day: Braves vs. Nationals

The 2011 MLB Opening Day finally arrived, but the Washington, DC weather did not get the memo. The day started off with sprinkles and turned into a balmy 41 degrees.  Sofia was looking forward to a little baseball, but because of a cold and an un-cooperating mother nature, her Opening Day will be delayed.  But the 30 Ballparks and a Baby family was not shutout. Dad weathered…

2009/2010 MLB Season

Dear Ballpark Chasers,



Baseball is finally in the air, but it feels like just yesterday that the New York Yankees inaugurated their new Yankee Stadium and then beat the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2009 World Series. Yankee Stadium was not the only new ballpark to open last season, or in New York for that matter. Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, also opened its doors.



The Florida Marlins and the Minnesota Twins also had some exciting ballpark activity in… Continue
