Comerica Park in Detroit, MI – Home of the Detroit Tigers

Comerica Park - Main Gate

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.

Pensacola Beach Florida – Things to do Under the Sun

Pensacola TowerIt 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.

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA – Home of the Dodgers

Dodgers - LogoBaseball 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”

Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois – Home of the Chicago Cubs

Cubs LogoVisiting Wrigley Field is something that had been on my to-do list for a long time. I am an Anaheim Angels fan, but have been curious about the Cubs and Wrigley Field since they picked up Ron Cey from the Dodgers in 1982. Thus, I was excited to finally be able to tour the 2nd oldest MLB ballpark while in Chicago in September of 2008. Continue reading “Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois – Home of the Chicago Cubs”

Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Maryland – Home to the Baltimore Orioles

Oriole Park - Orioles LogoAwhile back I did a post about Angels Stadium and the Anaheim Angels. In that post I stated I was going to do a post about some of the other ballparks I have been to and talk about the home team. While originally writing this, the Angels were playing the Baltimore Orioles, thus I decided to share my visit to their home park called Oriole Park of Camden Yards. On a side note, the Angels took the series!!! (sorry Orioles fans) Continue reading “Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Maryland – Home to the Baltimore Orioles”

Salt River Field – Rockies Home for Spring Training

Salt River Field 1I was so happy to be able to see some spring training games in late February and early March of 2019 for the first time ever! I am a HUGE Angels fan and was lucky enough to see them play at their spring training home stadium Tempe Diablo  However, I also got to see them play At Salt River Field at Talking Stick which is the home spring training stadium for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks.  It was actually the first stadium I visited, and it was incredible.  It has views of Camelback Mountain, the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, Red Mountain, and the Superstition Mountains. Since I live here in Colorado now, I like the Rockies too, so it was going to be fun to see both teams play each other. Continue reading “Salt River Field – Rockies Home for Spring Training”

Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California – Where Magic Lives

Angels Stadium - 4For those of you who don’t know me personally, I am a huge sports fan! Baseball is my passion and the Anaheim Angels are my favorite team. I have to get something out of the way right here, and state that I WILL NEVER refer to them as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim or Los Angeles Angels, or whatever they want to call them. They are the Anaheim Angels unless they move to another city.  They are in Anaheim, not Los Angeles, and should not have had it added to their name. The city of Los Angeles has another team, you can watch them if you want to watch a baseball team in LA. Anyway, I am done with my rant and off my soapbox, lol. As an Angels fan, my favorite stadium is Angels Stadium in Anaheim. Continue reading “Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California – Where Magic Lives”

Tempe Diablo Stadium – Angels Spring Training Field

tempe-diablo-stadium-front

In February of 2019, I spent a wonderful week in Phoenix, Arizona.  I was so happy to be able to check out the Heard Museum and the Arizona Science Center. Both were fun, but my main reason for visiting Arizona was to check some spring training games.  This was my first year being able to check out some of the stadiums since I quit my 9-5 job.  As a long-time Angels fan, I couldn’t wait to visit their spring training field, Tempe Diablo Stadium. It had been something I had wanted to do ever since I learned what spring training games were, lol.
