Hello all,

This is our first blog post of the summer, and we plan on being regulars on this blog. Some background on us, we are a father-son duo that have been planning this epic baseball trip for close to 12 years. The deal was when Jon graduates from college we would visit all 30 major league parks in one season. The year has finally come! We have the entire tripped planned and have squeezed some other destinations in the itinerary as well. We will also be attending the College World Series (if you have never gone you absolutely need to) and the Michagan vs. Alabama football game (go blue!).

We will be in Cleveland this Saturday and Detroit this Sunday to kick things off. Photos and updates will hopefully come with every ballpark we visit.

Had the privilege of meeting Ed and Jon yesterday at Progressive Field and will be with them next weekend in St. Louis and maybe KC. Best wishes guys on your epic journey.

This is awesome.  I will be traveling to all 30 parks as well.  We just miss each other on your first games.  I started today in Detroit and I will be in Cleveland on monday.

That's amazing- A true American father-son experience!  We look forward to reading about it.  My father actually pitched for St. John's in the 1960 College World Series in Omaha and his stories still keep me captivated to this day.  Enjoy!

Good luck, guys.  Many fathers and sons will be joining you on the trip vicariously.  I'm sending along good weather vibes!
