So after some research and coming up with a way to present it to my wife that made sense, I can say that my "Wasted Trip" is wasted no more! I talked my wife into letting me fly back East a few days ahead of her. In doing so I will make a stop in Minneapolis (actually in and out of Milwaukee, even with the added gas fee, cause I would have got a car anyway, it was still about $100 cheaper) on my way to Baltimore. In MPLS I will catch 2 games at Target Field, July 18th & 19th (vs the White Sox and Indians respectively). With a 6am flight out of Milwaukee on the 20th I get into Baltimore at 9am. I will then catch the Orioles that night vs the Rays from row 1 in the bleachers in straight away center field. I will then double back to catch the afternoon game the next day, again vs the Rays (who ironically, after these 2 games, I will have seen at Camden Yards 3 of the 5 games I have attended - the other 2 being the Rangers and Mets). With those 4 games added to my 1 game @ Yankee Stadium... 5 games isn't too shabby.

My overall park list for 2010 is looking fairly good.. not quite Bob DeVries standards... but I am happy :) lol

Safeco (atleast 5 games - Opening Day, 1 Cubs and 3 Red Sox)
Target Field (2)
Camden Yards (2)
Yankee Stadium (1)
Oakland Coliseum (2)
Dodger Stadium (1)
Angels Stadium (1 - maybe 2)
AT&T Park (1)

Petco Park (1)
Nationals Field (1)

Fenway (maybe on 7/24 - not likely, but maybe)

Baseball... WOOHOO! :)

Yes, Granby, CT. :) I only know him by his screen name on the other forum, not actual name, sorry. He mentioned Granby in a thread and I asked how close it was to Mystic since I was gonna be there in July. So I looked it up... which is why the name stuck with me :)

Hey Scott - yeah, sadly, that original trip got canceled. It was with Chuck Booth and due to work related things he was unable to get the time off that he needed, so we had to scrub the entire trip.

I do have my tickets bought and will be at Target Field July 18th & 19th.

Sorry about that, would have been cool to meet up with ya!

Did you update your schedule?

I saw on an earlier version that you planned to be at Target Field on June 28 for the Tigers/Twins.

We will be at that game (section 210 Row 4) so if you still plan to be there let me know and maybe we can connect.
