We Need Your Help: Have You Taken a Road Trip to Visit All the Baseball Stadiums in the Country?

For while I’ve thought that a great topic for AoM to cover would be the ins and outs of how to take one of the road trips many men dream about doing: visiting all 30 baseball stadiums in the country. I haven’t done it myself, so I need the help of an AoM reader who has. I’d like him to write an article about it, or if he’s not comfortable with that, I’d be happy to interview him.

If you’ve done the baseball stadium road trip, and would be interested in participating, email me at artofmanliness@gmail.com.

Wow, just as Baseball season is getting to an end too! What a perfect time to start planning such a trip for next year. Please do write this article! If anyone has done the same for football or soccer or any other sport, I would love to hear that too. I’m sure many of the same principles apply.

I can’t believe I’m saying this from Down Under where baseball doesn’t even rank a mention in the sports pages pretty much but I recall seeing something on ESPN a few months ago about a group of guys who did the 30 parks in 27 days all by road! thirty27.com is their website I believe…..

Just kicked it off this past season – making the trips about taking in the whole city or region makes it all the better. Saw Cleveland, Cinci, the rock n roll hall of fame and the NFL hall of fame in 4 days in Ohio this summer, just got back from a Pirates game this weekend while seeing falling water. The best part, learning about and participating in all of the stadium/team traditions. Remember to keep your stub and get a souvenir that’s specific to the team to fill a shelf in your man cave. I’m 9 teams in, should take another couple of years.

My wife and I have made many roa trips, following the Red Sox. We’ve gone to Baltimore (several times), Toronto, Atlanta, St. Petersburg (Tampa Bay), Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, and Seattle. Every one of those trips was a hit for us, every one had friendly people, even if there were a few drunken louts at some of the ball parks, and every one had wonderful restaurants, museums, cityscapes, and people. We haven’t been to NYC for an actual road trip (it’s in the ‘neighborhood’ and we visit there several times a year anyway and we have been to the Stadium) and we haven’t been to LA because it’s my home town. We’d love to go to more cities, but we’re not necessarily trying to hit them all. I could say more about each town and about our overall approach to these road trips—let me know.
