Greetings from the Infrequent Blogger! Last year, 2012, was a banner year for me in that I visited three parks I'd never been to before -- Turner Field, Petco Park and Dodger Stadium. At this rate, I should make it to all the parks by sometime in 2025.
This year, by contrast, I have only O.co (Oakland) Coliseum on the docket a a new ballpark for my list. However, I'm doing a repeat visit to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington (last there in 2011), and also to AT&T Park in San Francisco, which I haven't visited since it opened in 2000. Heck, I didn't even know what a Ballpark Chaser was back then.
And on this lovely April 1, the Twins home opener is scheduled for 3:00 this afternoon with a game-time temperature of 33 degrees F. I will not be in attendance for this first game of what appears to be a rebuilding year for the Twins (well, what was last year, then? But I digress), in part because it's TOO. DAMN. COLD. Am I a fair-weather fan, then? Yah, sure, you betcha.
