Project Ballpark

We really don’t think there’s a better way to see the United States than on the road. You can take a plane, but that will only get you to major cities. In a car though, you have the freedom to not only build your own path, but make stops along the way and witness the beauty that this country has to offer. But how do you choose your path? National parks? Major cities? Random road trip online generator (yea it exists…)?

Well, baseball is America’s past time and there just so happens to be 30 Major League baseball stadiums scattered strategically around the United States. This was obviously so that people could make an absurd roadtrip out of them, duh.  But in all reality, the reason we chose this route was for a two reasons:

  1. JT is a huge baseball fan and baseball is America’s pastime. How much more American can you get?
  2. The stadiums embody the culture of the region in which it is located. This includes (but is not limited to) the sponsoring companies, the architecture and design, the food that’s served, and marketing efforts of the team itself. You can get an incredible feel for the region of a team just by visiting their baseball stadium.

Seriously though, who would make an effort to head to Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Toronto in the same road trip? That’s some serious diversity. But we’ll need some help.

Of course, there are always a few secrets to going to the ballparks (parking, food, beverages, cool places in the stadium). So help us out. Click on the link of the stadium below. If we haven’t hit the stadium yet, please comment and give some insight into the secrets of the stadium and how the locals might go about conquering game day. Maybe even some cool things to do around the city. Below are links to the stadium in order by the date in which we will be visiting them (some might have no info on them). Regardless, please comment and give advice – we’d love to hear from you.

After we’ve visited a stadium, we’ll upload a blog post giving a little anecdote about our experience! Follow along and share your stories! Thanks
