On Thursday June 28th 2012 I finally reached stadium #30. On this trip my wife and I drove 3,700 miles. Pennsylvania to Miami and Tampa. Also stopped in Atlanta on the 29th and St Louis on July 1st and the Louisville Slugger Musuem on the way home. My wife needs Comerica Park to reach her 30th stadium. We have a mid August trip planned for Detroit. Overall I've been to 40 MLB stadiums since the VET back in 1986. To remember this amazing journey I purchased 1st base in St.Louis on July 1st. My 30th stadium was Tropicana but I'm a Cardinal fan and wanted something from my fsvorite team to top off this trip. This was really neat as you have to pre-order the base before the game at Cardinals Authentics at the stadium. Every time a a Cardinal would reach base wewould take pitures. Also the Cardinals won which made it even better. What a great time I've had traveling with my wife to all the great ballparks.

Thank you Jim. Can't believe I've been to them all then some. Looking forward to Detroit in Mid August when my wife reaches her 30th stadium and 36 overall.
