MLB Ball Parks

I love baseball. I treat Opening Day like it's Christmas. My favorite team is the New York Mets and I just love the game. I started touring the ballparks as part of my list of 25 things to do before I turned 25 but when I wasn't able to make that happen, I decided to just keep going trying to hit them all up as soon as possible.

  1. What a great goal. My dad is doing this, and I would love to join him, but it's just unrealistic at this point.

  2. This would be a great year to visit the MN Twins Target Field in Minneapolis. It's a couple years old now so you shouldn't have to pay through the nose to get in. (The first year I think I paid double face value every game I went to a game just because tickets were in such high demand.) It's an awesome venue, and since the Twins aren't expected to be too wonderful this year either,tickets should pretty easy to purchase.

  3. Hi. Just ran into your site and what a amazing combination of travel and baseball!! I do this as well plus soccer when I travel internationally. The one thing I can't live without is my passport for sure.

    If you ever get a chance, read up on a book in the late 80's called *Dodger Dogs and Fenway Franks* written by Bob Wood. He was a English teacher who traveled all 26 ballparks and gave each one a grade based on atmosphere, food, hospitality and etc. A fascinating read especially as the only ballparks that exist from then is Fenway, Wrigley, Dodger, Royal, Angel and the Oakland Coliseum.

    Looking forward to your posts and pictures. Happy Travels!

    1. Hey Nick, thanks for the book recommendation! I'll definitely check it out!

  4. I have a bucket list to see a game in all major league baseball parks. So far I'm at 42 parks with 2 to go (New Yankee stadium and new Marlins park). I do at least one a year to keep my hand in. Last year I knocked off the hardest one, for me, to get to, Seattle. It was great! Nice park (go up high on the first base side and you can see th sound). My list includes several demolished parks like Shea Stadium, Polo Grounds, Griffin Staduium in DC and several that are no longer used like RFK and Expo Stadium. PNC Park is by far the best; my worst was Cellular Field b/c I had a bad run-in with drunken bleacher creatures in that park. Good luck! When you finish the bigs, you can get started on the hundreds of minor league parks! They are cool!

    1. That's great! I've been to a few of the Minor League favorites are MCU Park (Brooklyn Cyclones) and Jackie Robinson Stadium in Daytona! PNC Park was also my favorite...worst was Yankee Stadium...for a similar reason...bad run in with nearly every employee there.

  5. I have just discovered your blog through the links Amanda from Mind Your Body Oasis sent out and I have to say, it's one of the greatest things to come out of me going to MYBO yesterday! I have loved checking out your space and reading up on your life (creepy? nahhh)

    I too am OBSESSED with baseball (red sox fan, whaddup) and have the same goal you do- to go to all of the ball parks in the country. I haven't traveled any where close to the miles you've clocked in but I hope to see them all before I die :)
