Field Of Dreams Game: 8/12/2021 Experience Of A Lifetime

Baseball is, has been, and always will be the greatest game in the world. Last night, it was proven to the entire world. History took place at the Field Of Dreams, and the first MLB game was played in the state of Iowa. Before I start, if you’re new to the blog, welcome! I startedContinue reading “Field Of Dreams Game: 8/12/2021 Experience Of A Lifetime”

Weekend Of 7/10/21: “A League Of Their Own”

Wow, what a weekend it’s been! I knew this weekend would be a big one, but Mother Nature made sure to make it even more exciting. Saturday started off as an uncertain day. I watched the radar very close, and assumed that Saturday was an all or nothing type of day. It was looking likeContinue reading “Weekend Of 7/10/21: “A League Of Their Own””

6/14/2021: Springfield, IL: Before The Game

I mentioned in my last post that I recommend The Corn Crib to mix in with a trip to other ballparks. Sunday was the perfect example of that! Sunday I woke up at the hotel, ate lunch, and left for Springfield. The game wasn’t until later in the day, and that was perfect for myContinue reading “6/14/2021: Springfield, IL: Before The Game”

On This Day: 2015

On this day in 2015, I was one of 27,508 people at Turner Field. This was one of a few games I took in at this beautiful stadium in 2015. This stadium had such a different feeling. It might’ve been the stage of my life I was in at the tine, or the atmosphere ofContinue reading “On This Day: 2015”

Updated 2021 Schedule

When I created my first 2021 summer schedule, I mentioned that it would be tentative. Things have already changed though, and I wanted to keep everyone updated on those changes. I completely forgot about Father’s Day on the first schedule, and another family thing came up in July. These things caused a few changes, butContinue reading “Updated 2021 Schedule”

5/31/21: No Place Like Home

Baseball is back in my hometown. This was a moment we weren’t sure of for a while, but it’s back. As I’ve mentioned before, our team was one of the contracted teams from MILB, but were back. Opening night was scheduled for Thursday, but Mother Nature said not yet. When I was in Wisconsin, IContinue reading “5/31/21: No Place Like Home”

Memorial Weekend 2021: Hayward, WI

I have another post that isn’t baseball/ballpark related, but one of my favorite places to take a trip to. When I was a kid, I went to Hayward many times. When the pandemic hit in 2020, it was my first time going back since I was 16 years old. I ended up going back anotherContinue reading “Memorial Weekend 2021: Hayward, WI”

5/22/21: Gary Southshore Railcats Vs Houston Apollos

What a game it was for seeing my first American Association game! This game reassured me that the game of baseball is still alive and well. With all of the rule changes, contraction, and everything else happening in affiliated baseball, I thought the old baseball most of us loved was gone. This game proved theContinue reading “5/22/21: Gary Southshore Railcats Vs Houston Apollos”

South Dakota: 2021

This post will be a little different than my other posts, but I wanted to share the trip I’ve been this week. Tonight wraps up an awesome 4 day trip to South Dakota. There was a mix of American History, outdoors, wildlife, and gambling. This was the perfect trip during the pandemic, and a veryContinue reading “South Dakota: 2021”
