OK, this topic is probably a little bit off what we'd normally discuss but I thought it would be fun to ask the question. When you're on the road towards a ballpark (or in the air, on the train,…Continue

Well the news is out: the Philadelphia Flyers will probably be playing the New York Rangers in the NHL’s yearly Winter Classic, and the venue will be Philadelphia’s superb Citizens Bank Park, home of the Phillies.
Not much more you need to know, except that they haven’t established the date yet; the Eagles will be playing the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field across the street on the traditional New Year’s Day, assuming the football…

Latest tip on the Ballpark E-Guides Blog:
Ballpark E-Guides makes every effort to give you any information you could use for going to a ballgame. Some ballparks present different challenges than others.

And at Fenway the biggest problem to be solved is simply how to get into the…Continue

Wisconsin is brat country, something I learned too late after my first trip to Miller Park.
While I liked Miller, I was a little bit miffed at the low quality of the hot dog. I believe at the time I declared it to be the worst dog I’d ever had at a ballgame, and I liked Wendy Selig less afterward for it. (This was in 2001 when she still owned the Brewers.) As far as I was concerned, there was no excuse for a ballpark in Wisconsin to have a lousy hot dog.

People here bleed Eagles green, Flyers orange and Phillies red, and no one cares too much about the 76ers.
I don’t live and die with the Flyers’ fortunes and care much less about the Eagles, but I must admit that the new, revitalized sports complex in Philadelphia is quite the…Continue

Hey Kurt! I am sure you have seen this but I came across this article today and noticed you were featured! http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/07/the-7-best-mlb-ballparks-for-eating
Thanks for the tips on Wrigley. The Chicago dog was great. Can't wait to get to the next stadiums this summer.
One question, I doubt you know the answer but...when you get off the train at Five Points, is there a shuttle right there or do you have to go through Atlanta Underground?
Check out my comments on Turner Field (no secrets except use MARTA and if you get a chance, take the tour of the stadium - that was excellent)
