MLB Parks Tour #4 – Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY – 2008

| Posted by Harlan

Apologies for the lack of posts around here…we’ll get better. And now, for an overdue installment on our MLB Parks Tour…

It had to happen, you know. Me, a Red Sox/Rangers fan, visiting the Evil Empire to see the Yankees in Yankee Stadium. Truthfully though, despite my incredible disdain for the Bronx Bombers, I was still really excited about visiting the park made famous by the Babe, Dimaggio, Gehrig and Mantle. This was amplified also by the fact that we were visiting Yankee Stadium in it’s final season, before being torn down to erect their new evil lair.

Like many of our baseball trips, the weather was unforgiving and we experienced the first of many rain delays. But what made the rain tolerable was how it affected the Yanks…a drizzly evening turned into an embarrassing night.

MLB Parks Tour #3 – Shea Stadium, Queens, NY – 2008

| Posted by Harlan

When Yvette and I began discussing the possibility that we might like to visit all of the Major League Baseball parks, the conversation quickly turned to New York, New York. It’s not as though we had any real connection to the Mets or the Yankees, far from it truth be told. Rather, we knew that both the Mets and Yankees were entering into their final seasons at their historic ballparks, and this would be our final opportunity to see games there. It was too much to pass up.

MLB Parks Tour #2 – Ballpark in Arlington, Arlington, TX – 2007

| Posted by Harlan

This one is perhaps the least exciting of the ballparks we’ve visited, but only because it’s in our hometown, and we get to visit it quite regularly. Nonetheless, we can’t exactly leave it out.  We’ve been to countless games at the now named Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, including three opening days, about 10 Rangers-Red Sox games, and watching Cliff Lee outduel the Yankees on the way to a World Series berth.  The game I’ve chosen for this purpose is actually none of those.  Instead, I’ve chosen a game that was pretty special to quite a few of us.  It’s the coldest game on record at the Ballpark: Saturday, April 7th, 2007, Red Sox @ Rangers. Start time weather: 38 degrees and falling.

MLB Parks Tour #1 – Fenway Park, Boston, MA – 2005

| Posted by Harlan

If we were to get really technical, Fenway Park wasn’t the first ballpark Yvette and I visited as a couple. In fact, it was the local Ballpark in Arlington that set in motion our goal to visit each of America’s 30 Major League ballparks. Nevertheless, Fenway was the first park we visited after being wed. Actually, it was one of the very first things we did as a married couple, less than 24 hours later.  Continue Reading
