Marlins Park August 2015

Posted on August 29, 2015 at 10:52am 2 Comments

Finally got to Marlins Park this month, and liked it a lot. We took a trip down to Miami for an overnight just to get to the park - although stayed in South Beach so did an Art Deco walking tour as well, absolutely worthwhile. I saw what I figured must be Marlins Park from the air as we were coming in for landing, and confirmed in the taxi on the way there that yes, that is what I saw. We thought it was big and flashy, and while it would look awful just about anywhere else, was absolutely…

The Strasburger - for you Ballpark Foodie Types

Posted on July 21, 2012 at 6:41am 10 Comments

Big news, had a Strasburger last night at Nats Park!  I was at the game with a group of friends, six of us, at one of the tables at the Red Porch, back around where we were facing the center field entrance.  Seemed like the right time and place to order a Strasburger, (he was pitching and it was his 24th birthday) which turned out to be quite good - this is an eight pound cheeseburger, about the size of a layer cake, and we cut it up into six pieces, so everyone got a slice sized about as…

Citifield in June, 2010

Posted on August 7, 2011 at 6:46pm 0 Comments

This is my last posting of ballparks visited in 2010.

We were up in New York for other reasons, so checked out which team was in town – Mets, against the Twins – and planned to go.   I liked the Citibank Field space a lot, good place to walk around – from the subway you enter through a two story rotunda (main concourse is up an escalator) that is dedicated to Jackie Robinson, with lots of pictures and quotes, quite touching.  Other aspects of the park are tributes to Ebbetts Field and…

Comerica Park, June, 2010 - Nats at Tigers

Posted on July 31, 2011 at 3:33pm 17 Comments

Comerica is a real baseball cathedral. It is designed so that downtown Detroit, which has beautiful buildings, (albeit many unoccupied) is the full panorama of the outfield, and makes it ever so much more annoying that the Capitol cannot be seen from much of Nats Park. There are large tiger sculptures at many of the entrances – skulking, snarling – and there are tiger heads with baseballs in their mouths along several of the exterior walls which look like gargoyles or sconces, and the baseballs… Continue

Life certainly does get in the way! Like many people, it is very, very stressful and tough to make decisions right now. But now and again, as with my trip to Citifield the other weekend, it's pure joy and relaxation and a chance to forget about the stresses for one day! I love being at the ballparks! I surely will let you know when I can arrange another for your home field! Enjoy your day away at the ballpark this weekend!

Thanks for getting back to me about Saturday and offering to swing by my seat. I'm not going to be able to make it anyway after all. We'll have to try it again sometime. Hopefully with more notice, it could work out with a small group. I think it would be so much fun! Enjoy the game Saturday!
