In August of this year Gene and I had a wonderful time on a Mid-West Adventure through IA, MN and NE. While in the Minneapolis we were loking forward to visiting the home stadium of the Minnesota Twins, Target Field. I was extremely excited to visit the stadium which was my 22nd MLB park. It was very unique and different than some of the other parks we had visited. However, it was a great park and our tour guide was amazing! He was so connected to the some many aspects of MLB and had some wonderful stories. Love when we get a tour guide who loves his job! With that said, I will share some information about the Twins and Target Field. Continue reading “Target Field, Minneapolis, MN – Home of the Twins”
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.
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.
