Hello, I'm brand new here (wish I found this site a few months ago) I am going my "Baseball Dream Trip" in June. I saved the money and got the time off. I have most of my tickets already. I am from Southern California but will be in Arkansas at the beginning of my trip. I am going to each city for a day, with the exception of Chicago and San Diego, so if anyone has tips, please send me a note.. I will look through the archives, but in the meantime I'll post my itinerary.. I can't believe there are more chasers like myself!!

6/8 - Houston @ K.C

6/9 - Phi @ Mil

6/10 - Tor @ ChiSox

6/11 - Cin @ ChiC

6/12 - Cin @ Cubs (Day game)
6/12 - Tor @ ChiSox (Night game)

6/13 - No MLB games scheduled, leaving open for minor league game or NBA playoff game if Chi or Indy is playing.

6/14 - Wash @ Clev

6/15 - LAD @ Pitt

6/16 - Bos @ Bal

6/17 - Was @ Phi (or possible trip to Cooperstown, went to Phi last season)

6/18 - T.B @ Bos

6/19 - LAD @ NYY

6/20 - LAD @ S.D (back in home in So Cal, will more than likely stay for the whole 4 game series)

Took Jim's advice and changed plans, I flew into Milwaukee instead of driving, wow what was I thinking .. Also changed plans, flying after Philly game to Boston.. Learning on the "fly" no pun intended ..

Getting the most bang for my buck, in Chicago I'll catch 2 day/night games with Cubs and Sox, and just now saw that on June 18th while in Boston, the Red Sox and Rays will playing a doubleheader, BooYah!!!

Baltimore is my favorite stadium. Have gotten autographs there from retired players. Boog Powell signs often. I know everybody says get crab cakes or whatever, but I do Boogs BBQ......and I'm from Texas! So I'm really picky about my BBQ. If you need to kill time there... Plan ahead and see the aquarium. Waterfront area is a cool place to hang out kill time with ease to stadium. And DEFINITELY go to Cooperstown!! Its the icing on the cake for all who've been chasers. I have already been there with the family. Four stadiums left to go. No matter what though, enjoy the journey!

Have you tried all major rental car companies? Seems like one of them should have a better option.

Comment by Ernie on May 7, 2013 at 7:55pm

They got me, damn!! A $400 fee for a one way rental, ouCH!!

Now I wonder if I can make a minor change to it.. as I'm looking, I'm looking at either going from (flying, cheap if I purchase now on Southwest) Mil to Minn or Chi from Minn, since I'll be in Chi for a few days I can sacrifice there. Or go from Balt to Atl then to Boston.. and skip Philly since I've been there.. Or last option sneak in a trip to T.B... There is just so many options for a one day flight that I didn't consider until now, and wanna maximize my trip.. I would really like to go to Target Field.

I take it back Ernie. i guess what commenter Tim was saying is the 1 way fee. Yes for that they will charge you a lot. Ive never had to pay because ive always returned it to the place i rented it from. But if you are returning to another city other than the one you rented it from. Then be prepared to pay. better call first and find out how much it will be,so you dont get caught off guard

Comment by George Walsh on May 4, 2013 at 5:14pm

Who says you have to pay $.50 a mile? Ive rented a bunch of cars and have never been charged for mileage,never. That's how it used to be years ago. Not anymore.make sure you rent from Alamo, Budget, dollar. All those give you unlimited mileage. if not sure,check the website. Just make sure you return it to the city you rented it from. Because if not they will Charge you a lot.

Rental car, didn't quite budget that $.50, but I did plan this out, worked a lot of O.T, so if I have to, I'll pay it.. I'm looking to reserve my car this coming Monday, any ideas?

(Don't know if I reply to your post on your page or on my post)
I'm driving to Mil from K.C, which I have at about 566 miles, that's the only long drive, but I'm going solo so I can do it with minimal stops, Can't wait!!
