When I planned this trip, there were a few parks I had been dying to see my whole life. First on the list was Kauffman Field in KC-which I loved! Now, I'm at Camden Yards and so far it's amazing. Marking the 2/3 mark of the stadiums, this is #20 and I can't think of … Continue reading Toronto Blue Jays v. Baltimore Orioles, Camden Yards 9/3/17

Researching MLB fan experience is a labor of love for Temple grad student
Today is going to be a busy day! Why? Because I'm in Cooperstown, NY to see the baseball HOF! Oh, I'm also headed towards Toronto and Niagara Falls! I'll post more about my visit here later, and of course on Instagram! Also, a big thank you to "Safe at Home Ballpark Collectibles" in Cooperstown and … Continue reading Cooperstown
Chicago Cubs v. Philadelphia Phillies 8/26/17 in Philly!
It sure does feel good to be home in Philly! I'm here at Citizens Bank Park to see my World Champion Cubbies take on my hometown Phillies. Because I live in Philly and grew up in Chicago, it's difficult to root against the Phillies so tonight I am just enjoying baseball and doing my thing … Continue reading Chicago Cubs v. Philadelphia Phillies 8/26/17 in Philly!

My final stop before heading home to Philly for a few days! Don't fear, I'm not done with my travels...just taking a few days to recoup, have some meetings and write and post a bunch of new reviews!

Cincinnati Reds v. MY Chicago Cubs in Cincy at the Great American Ballpark 8/22/17
This is going to be short and sweet because traffic was all jacked up and I got here much later than I would have liked... So, I'll say this...the HOF is amazing, they have some great merch (though super expensive), the park is gorgeous, fans are engaging and passionate, and the food looks pretty home … Continue reading Cincinnati Reds v. MY Chicago Cubs in Cincy at the Great American Ballpark 8/22/17
Atlanta Braves v. Cincinnati Reds 8/20/17 Atlanta, SunTrust Park
Stop #17 of my grad research ballpark adventure is here in Atlanta at SunTrust Park. When I had only planned on seeing half the parks this summer, Atlanta was one of the ones I just had to see. I needed to see the newest MLB park because I was so curious what crazy & awesome … Continue reading Atlanta Braves v. Cincinnati Reds 8/20/17 Atlanta, SunTrust Park
TB Rays v. Seattle Mariners Tampa 8/18/17
I'm here at Tropicana Field in Tampa to see my friends, the Seattle Mariners play the Rays! This stadium is like a graveyard, I've seen more people at a little league game! The so-called "party deck" is even empty! But, I still kinda like it here because of that. Don't get it twisted though, this … Continue reading TB Rays v. Seattle Mariners Tampa 8/18/17
Florida Marlins v. SF Giants, Miami, FL 8/15/17
It's me, Andy & I'm here in Miami for game #15! It's hot as balls outside, and I am just soaking in the AC of the dome for the moment! Other than that, I don't have much for you besides this: The stadium is the most empty I've seen a ballpark this soon before a … Continue reading Florida Marlins v. SF Giants, Miami, FL 8/15/17
