Philadelphia Phillies v. NY Mets, Citi Field 9/6/17

I've been to 21 parks now this summer, and this is my first rain delay! But, here is the awesome part about that... I'm hanging out with some of the NY Temple alumni! This stadium is so awesome, it probably has something to do with me always loving the Mets--since Darryl Strawberry is my fav … Continue reading Philadelphia Phillies v. NY Mets, Citi Field 9/6/17

Atlanta Braves v. Oakland Athletics 7/1/17 at the Oakland Coliseum

At the beginning of this journey, I heard a lot of different things about a bunch of different stadiums. Baseball fans love asking me questions about stadiums they’ve wanted to visit or tell me things about the ones they have. What they really love though is talking about their favorite and least favorite ballparks that … Continue reading Atlanta Braves v. Oakland Athletics 7/1/17 at the Oakland Coliseum

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.

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

Houston Astros v. Toronto Blue Jays, Houston, TX 8/4/17

Houston is hot as hell and muggy too, but the ballpark has a roof and air conditioning!  I've only here a few minutes now, but this sure is a pretty stadium!  How are there so few people here when the team is playing so well, that, I do not know... Food wise, I'm excited because … Continue reading Houston Astros v. Toronto Blue Jays, Houston, TX 8/4/17
