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 set of three (3) males to get to all Ballparks without having a beer (they're too young and I
don't drink)?

Or is this something like the old Boston sports joke:
Q. Who is the only person to play for the Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins in the same year?
A. John Kiley - the organist at Fenway Park and Boston Garden (get it?)

Well, it's worth a try !!!

Geez, what a great dad to do all of this before they have even graduated high school! Hmmm...maybe I will have to add a "Ballpark Chaser Records" page and we can have our own competition?

First off that this is quite exceptional that you guys are able to have done this--at age 16 I had been to exactly 1 stadium all time. More importantly--the most important questions are: Did you watch 4 1/2 innings at least per park visited? To qualify for a Guinness Book Of World Record is a tough quest. Their criteria is to have watched every single play of every contest you saw. So this means you would have had to watched the 1st pitch to the last pitch of every single ball game you attended to in order to qualify. Also, there would need to be evidence of the aforementioned by video or pictorial evidence. When I sent my Guinness Book Of World Record Claim it was prosecuting a case. I had video, pictoral evidence of each contest I was at. Ticket stubs, cell phone receipts, car rental receipts, boarding passes, parking receipts, toll booth receipts, gas station receipts etc.... However since we are growing number of hardcore fans---your achievements will be honored in here and unless someone speaks up we can call say that the record will be your son's to have for the time being. Congrats on a remarkable feat. It takes hard work, planning, dedication and true love for baseball to do what you have done. There is a small percentage of us in here that have gone to all parks in one year. There is myself, Josh Robbins(who went to all the ballparks by car in 26 days, 30 ballparks and a baby have done this, Bob Devries is the only one besides myself to have gone to all the ballparks in 2 years consecutively. There are others I am forgetting. Way to go guys!
