’30-YOC Top Ten Lists’ – ‘Top Ten Ballparks I’d Like To Visit’

I love to take road-trips.  If I could have my way, all of my vacations would involve touring around North America cruising from great city to great city.

In the last 5 years, I have flown to the following states and then rented a car with the purpose of touring around:  Colorado, Tennessee, Kansas, Missouri, Chicago, and Texas.

And each time we go somewhere, I always make the comment, ‘I’d love to catch a big league game here’.  So far, I have been shut out.  But as my boys get bigger and become baseball fans, fingers crossed, I am hoping we can take in some ball games in other parks around the country.

Here is a list of the ‘Top Ten Ballparks I’d Like To Visit’.

10 – Rangers Ballpark At Arlington, TX

9 – Target Field, MN

8 – Turner Field, GA

7 – Busch Stadium, MO

6 – Great American Ballpark, OH

5 – Rogers Center, Canada

4 – AT&T Park, CA

3 – Orioles Park At Camden Yards, MD

2 – Yankee Stadium, NY

1 – Fenway Park, MA

Man, I am ready to go now!!  Who’s with me??

Groudbreaking Pics From The Future Home Of The Florida Marlins

This event was open to the public and I am kind of kicking myself for not making more of an effort to try to attend.  This is the first ‘real’ step when it comes to the construction of the Marlins’ new home.  Just 32 months from now construction will be done and we will be able to enjoy baseball during the 2012 season in this state-of-the-art baseball stadium.

Here are a few pics from today’s groundbreaking ceremony:

I heard on the local sports radio station, 790 The Ticket, that Charlie Hough and Benito Santiago were on hand to throw out and catch the first ‘official’ pitch today.  I am dying to find a picture of that and when I do I will share it with all of you.
