I’ve seen all 30 Major League Baseball teams play at their home stadiums.
Like many from the Charlotte area, my first big-league baseball stadium visit was to Atlanta – Fulton County Stadium as a kid, then Turner Field.
In the early ’90s I got to visit the Chicago Cubs’ Wrigley Field and Baltimore’s Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
I got serious about this in 2002, when I was in Los Angeles for a game show audition, and arranged to see the Dodgers, Angels and Padres.
Creating travel packages has been a fun part of seeing all the parks. The best trip was to San Francisco with my mom and a friend to see the Giants and As, and then taking Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to Seattle for a Mariners game.
