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 diseases. The thing with SADS is that all of these deaths could have been prevented with awareness as there are treatments for the SADS conditions.

I start the Mission to get to all 30 on opening night at Fenway where the Red Sox play host to Yankees on Sunday April 4th. This will mark the 2nd year in a row that I will be at opening night for the MLB season. The next morning I fly to Atlanta to see my beloved Chicago Cubs season opener.

The balance of my schedule as well as information on the Shawn M DeVries Memorial Fund are on my website at I would love to have company at the games so please send me a message if you are interested in joining me at any of the games on my schedule.

And to Craig and Ken - I will be in Seattle on June 24, beers on me at the Pyramid Brew Pub.

I will be in Pittsburgh on Memorial Day - May 31 when the Cubs are in town. Let me know how many tickets you would like. A friend of mine is cousin's with Joe the stadium host at PNC. He said whatever I need for the game he will get the tickets.
