We had a great time running around NYC in May of 2022. One thing we haven’t done was visit Yankee Stadium or Citi Field. During this trip, we made sure they were on the top of our to-do list. The best part, was Citi Field was the 21st stadium I visited, thus I am officially on the last 3rd of my quest to visit all the MLB stadiums. We actually decided to attend a game here since we did a tour of Yankee Stadium earlier in the week. We had a wonderful time and everyone was nice even if I was wearing my Angels shirt, lol. I did get a hat while there, so that might have helped too, lol. Continue reading “Citi Field in Queens New York – Home to the NY Mets”
While in NYC in May of this year, we were finally able to see and take a tour of Yankee Stadium. It was my 20th MLB Park and I was so excited to be 2/3 of the way into my quest to see all 30 stadiums! There is so much history behind the Yankees and Yankee Stadium. I just wish I would have been able to see the stadium often referred to as the House That Ruth Built. Sadly it was demolished after the new stadium was opened on opening day on April 16, 2009.
On my continued quest to visit all 30 MLB ballparks, in this post, I am going to share our visit to Comerica Park. We were in Michigan in May of 2021 and spent the first part of the trip seeing the beautiful Mackinaw Bridge near the Upper Peninsula. It was beautiful and enjoyed it there, but after our time there, we headed to Detroit for a few days. The main thing I wanted to visit while in the area was catch a game at a park I had never been to, and watch the Tigers play at their home park. It is a lovely park and it was a beautiful day. Even though it may have been a little windy at times, it kept it from getting too hot. It was a great day to catch a game. Continue reading “Comerica Park in Detroit, MI – Home of the Detroit Tigers”
It has been quite cold here in Colorado lately and I am missing the warmth we had while in Miami, Florida this time last year and did the exciting Everglades Airboat Tour. Sadly, we won’t be back in Florida until maybe later this year. However while talking to a friend about Florida it made me start thinking about a trip to Florida in May of 2011, when we spent time part of a week playing in the Pensacola area. Unlike Miami, in Pensacola you will find miles of white sand beaches, but they stretch along the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoyed our time swimming and playing in these crystal clear waters.
Baseball is back! The first games are being played today, and my Angels and the Rockies open on Friday night. The Rockies’ opponent this season is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Thus I decided to share a post about the actual team located in Los Angeles. Living in Southern California for many years, we have been to many games at Dodgers Stadium. I think one of the highlights was when I was at Dodgers Stadium when Ramón Martínez pitched a no-hitter on July 14, 1995. It is still the only no-hitter I’ve seen in person. It was quite exciting. Now for some history about the Dodgers organization. Continue reading “Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA – Home of the Dodgers”
Originally named The Ballpark at Union Station, Enron Field, and Astros Field, Minute Maid Park opened in 2000 and is Houston’s first retractable-roofed stadium. The largest entrance to the park is inside what was once Houston’s Union Station, and the left-field side of the stadium features a railway as an homage to the site’s history. The train moves along a track on top of the length of the exterior wall beyond left field whenever an Astros player hits a home run and/or the Astros win a game. It was so cool to see while in the area in November of 2010. I’ve seen it many times on TV but so cool to see it in person. Continue reading “Minute Maid Park, Texas – Home of the Houston Astros”
As an Anaheim Angels fan I had wanted to see my Angels at an away game. Therefore, in September of 2010 I decided to fly from Colorado to Kansas City to check out a 3 game series. I wasn’t able to do a tour, but did attend all three games. It was my first game outside of California and I had the most amazing time! Found out where the Angels were staying and had a drink with a few of them in the hotel bar. It was a blast. With that said, I would like to share the Kansas City Royals stadium called Kauffman Stadium. Continue reading “Kauffman Stadium – Home to the Kansas City Royals in Kansas City, MO”
I love baseball and you may have seen some of my posts about MLB ballparks, including my favorite Angels Stadium. As a huge fan, it has always been a dream to get to see the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. in October of 2015, my dream came true! We had a great time there and I will never forget our trip. Apparently many other people also enjoy this museum as there are approximately 300,000 visitors each year. incredible. Continue reading “The Baseball Hall of Fame – Cooperstown, New York”
While in Seattle to see the Microsoft Visitor Center, Boeing, Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, and a few other attractions, we also visiteded Safeco Field to watch my Anaheim Angels take on the Settle Mariners. We had a great time and the Seattle Mariners employees and fans were great hosts. As a side note, I was very happy to visit the stadium as it represented my 18th ballpark and it was the last one I hadn’t seen west of the Mississippi. Getting closer to my goal of visiting all 30 parks! Anyway, below is a little information about Safeco Field and the Seattle Mariners. On a side note, our trip was in May of 2016 and it was called Safeco Field. Since then the stadium has been changed names to T-Mobile Park. However, for the sake of this post, I am going to continue calling it Safeco Field since that was the name when we visited.
