If you haven't heard of the Ballpark Chasers website and Facebook page, it's a steadily growing community of baseball travelers who post photos, share stories, and best of all, help each other out when traveling to see baseball all over the country.

September 6, 2015


On Lou Gehrig’s bust in Monument Park in Yankee Stadium, there is no mention of his .340 lifetime average, 493 home runs, two MVP awards or his 1934 Triple Crown...Hall of Fame statistics all.

But it does point out that Gehrig played 2,130 consecutive games, and that the record “should stand for all time.”

It also reads that Gehrig was a gentleman, something that has never been disputed.

Often one of the reasons we elevate the status of an athlete or musician from “talented performer” ...

Ballpark E-Guides’ New Partner: Parking Panda!

July 12, 2015
Regular readers of the Ballpark E-Guides e-mail newsletter know how strongly I recommend reserving your parking in advance for baseball games.

Imagine driving to a ballgame and setting your GPS to the address of the garage or lot where you'll be parking, facing a minimal amount of traffic, and parking in a great affordable spot...which you've already paid for. Isn't that better than sitting in crawling ballgame traffic, just looking for a spot that isn't miles away and ridiculously overpriced...
