MLB recognition

At the request of Craig (our founder and fearless leader) I'm providing a little more detail on the feedback we got from MLB upon completing the "Quest for All 30".

I first contacted MLB (Public Relations Office - NYC) in January, gave them the backgrund and asked if they would be willing to send letters of recognition to my son's (Ian now 17 and Evin now 16) for having reached this "milestone" at such an early age. They were pretty encouraging but did ask that I follow up with an…

Can we get a record?

To everyone - but Chuck Booth in particular as the apparent "record keeper" guy for all this.

When we complete our "all current ballpark" quest next April in Tampa and Miami do we qualify for anything?

How about:

Youngest to get to all Ballparks (Evin Bell - 16yrs, 2mos, 19 days)

Youngest brothers to get to all Ballparks (Evin and Ian Bell - combined age 33 yrs, 4 mos, 29 days)?

First father/son combo to get to all Ballparks in the 21st century?

First… Continue

The Finish Line !!!

2011 Schedule out - plan set - rooms booked.

4/16 Minn at Tampa; 4/20 Pitt at Miami.

That makes all 30 current parks !!!!

Until 2012 then we will have to head back to Miami to add the new Marlins Ballpark.

PLEASE - stop with the new Ballparks already (this is getting expensive!!!)

Ballpark Trip Display

A couple of months ago someone posted a question about methods of displaying tickets and other memorabilia from Ballpark visits. There were a lot of great responses (Maps with push pins, Souvenir cups on shelves, Programs and tickets in binders, etc.)

Unfortunately, I can't seem to locate that post or I would respond there.

I held off responding when I first saw that post until we completed this year's trip but am inn the process of posting photos of what we have been… Continue

Taking Kids? Add Amusement Parks

Since you're out there anyway - especially with pre-teen/teenage kids - may I suggest joining both the Ballpark AND Amusement Park visitor cults.

In most cases ballparks and Amusement Parks are relatively near each other and the "quest" to go on all available roller coasters can be as addictive as the need to get to games.

In our case both are inextricably linked.

Our past trips as example: (starting when my sons, Ian and Evin, were 10 and 9… Continue

Forget Pete Rose, WE should be in the Hall of Fame !!!

Though it's clear that there are a lot of us with this baseball road trip passion, has anybody ever approached MLB about getting some form of recognition for those who do reach the milestone of getting to every Major League Park?

It seems like something they would consider - we're certainly demonstrating a comitment to their product, we're dropping big bucks in their coffers and we're doing something as quintessentially American as - well " and apple pie...".

I actually… Continue
