Default MLB Baseball Adventure Begins!

Well it begins! We have decided to start our baseball adventure to see all the MLB stadiums, it will be myself,wife and 11yr old son. We all love the game I have been playing baseball and coaching select ball for 30 years and my son has played select ball for the last 4 years. We just booked our first three stadiums Boston,Yankee and Mets in August going to be a blast. I would like to do 3 or more stadiums a year my next ones will be along the California coast. Anyone ever do this?

Start with the oldest parks. People thought the old Yankee stadium would be around forever. It's gone now. Same with Candlestick, Shae, etc.

I did Yankee, Fenway, Wrigley, and Shae, but missed some good ones.

Coaching buddy of mine was doing this over severa years. His dad, his 9th grade step-son, and he would take a road trip and drive . Usually 7-10 day trip depending on where they were going. The 3 years we coached together they did east coast, central and west coast southern CAans Arizona. Coach

My son and his wife have done about half of them. They try to go to 2 or 3 every year or so. There are some beautiful parks out there. I'm just glad the season will be starting up again pretty soon. I can't wait. It's like the doldrums after football season is over. I'm not a fan of basketball or hockey, so baseball season can't get here soon enough for me!

You got 3 of the big ones knocked out. As much as I envy the cool factor of this quest, I can't fathom flying to Toronto to see a game there lol.
I try to catch games on business travel. Have the east coast complete along with dozens of minor league stuff in Florida. Still nothing in Chicago.

I went to a game at Old Yankee it's last year and a game at New Yankee it's first year. Old Yankee was a piece of junk but had so much history. New Yankee is incredibly nice, but doesn't feel like a ballpark.

It felt like Texas Stadium and Cowboys Stadium to me. Texas stadium had so much history and it was the site of my last high school game, so it was awesome. But it was a DUMP!

Fenway is incredible. I immediately became a Red Sox fan after going there. It's like you're being transported back in time. Incredible place.

I share your goal of visiting all the parks!

My sister and her husband has ever been to all of them except a few in Cali. They usually hit 3 to four each summer. Even though they are Rangers fans they said their favorite venue was my cubbies home park, Wrigley. Good luck on your excursion, hope you and your family have as much fun as my sisters family does.

I'm going to try and add a couple more just have to see how my baseball schedule works out first. Might try and hit Ranger and Colorado if I can work it out right.

I'm probably biased, as it's where i grew up watching baseball, but the Ballpark in Arlington (I'll always call it that) is absolutely gorgeous. Sure it's hot in the summer, but it's an outstanding place to watch a ballgame.

Been hitting a couple the last few years. So far I have knocked Kansas City, St. Louis, Houston and of course The Rangers. I would like to knock Boston and Denver off this year if I can work it out. I have a long way to go but its a start.

There is a group of us that hit a different stadium for opening weekend each year since 1998. I have missed a couple of these trips, but I think I have been to 22 different stadiums now. Make sure you find the restaurant at the stadium that sells some of the local popular things like crab cake sandwiches in Baltimore and These trips are always fun. We are headed to St. Louis this year.

We are excited to start this baseball adventure with our son. We wanted to wait until he was old enough to actually know what's going on and will remember it when he gets older. I think he knows more about the game than most adults at the games his baseball IQ is very good and he knows all the great players in today's game.
