Well, my father, myself and my 2 boys will be at Coors Field on July 13th for our FINAL STADIUM. Its been a long time since we started this adventure but i can say its been a BLAST. My father started going to games in 1949 (Cleveland Municipal Stadium) and on the 13th will have been to 39 MLB and 31 Minor League Stadiums. Myself, my dad took me to my first game in 1975 (also, Cleveland Municipal Stadium) and since I have been to 38 MLB, 31 Minor League and 28 different Sprint Training sites. I have also been to 5 Different World Series and attended the Roy Halladay perfect game with my boys. My 2 sons (17 & 15) started there adventure in 1995 and 1997 respectively and will reach this goal as well. My boys have been to 32 MLB stadiums and 26 different Minor League Stadiums.
Beside baseball I am trying to get to every Major Sports (MLB,NHL,NFL,NBA) venue in the US and Canada. I have been to 25 NFL Stadiums, 21 NBA and 18 NHL Arenas as well. Of the 100 plus venues I've attended it represents 85 of the 122 professional teams, so I have a ways to go yet.
It's great to see that there are so many others that enjoy the chase and the thrill of being to all of the MLB Stadiums. It was always a dream of mine to get to every stadium and it will finally happen in 10 days!!!

Congrats on seeing all the MLB ballparks. The beauty of this is that every time a new ballpark opens, you can add to the list. And don't forget Tokyo!
Congratulations on completing your goal! I like the T-shirt idea - what a way to commemorate your visit to Coors Field and joining the chasers that have seen all 30 of the current MLB parks.
Well we did it, July 13th at Coors Field. My father and 2 boys reached the goal with me so that made it even more special. We had made up shirts listing all of the stadiums and years on the back. It was pretty cool, we met some great people in Denver that were trying to do the same thing. The first people we ran ito happened to be from the Ft Lauderdale area where we are from and they had 21 stadiums visited. All in all it was a fantastic trip and I will post some pictures later.
COngrats! I have no desire, at all, to hit all the others (NHL,NFL & especially NBA), but that would be cool to say you did if it's something you like :)
Congrats from a newbie. hope to make it one day. Enjoy.
