What does 30 before 30 mean? For me, it’s seeing a game at all Major League Baseball stadiums.

Here is where I will document my journey to make that goal happen. Over the next few months I will be posting stories of experiences I have had at MLB stadiums. When I go to a new stadium, I will also write about that here.
I turned 25 back in February, and so far I have been to 11 ballparks. Getting to all 30 MLB stadiums before I turn 30 may seem like a tough task. After all, that’s 19 stadiums in 5 years I have to visit to achieve my 30 for 30 goal.
The good news is I already have plans to knock out 6 new ballparks in 2018. A July trip to see St. Louis, Kansas City, Minnesota, Milwaukee, and Chicago (NL) (in that order) is well in the works. Then there’s a plan to go to Toronto in September.
In 2017 I added Arizona, San Diego, Anaheim, Philadelphia, and Baltimore (in that order). So it’s simple, really. Visit 5 new ballparks a year. The plan is save vacation days for these trips and only go to cities with MLB teams. Sorry, Vegas.
Oh, you’re probably wondering about the other six ballparks I’ve been to. They’re Cleveland (home), Cincinnati, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Washington, and Chicago (AL)
Side note: I’ve also been to Washington’s old stadium, RFK Stadium.

Come along with me, as I go across America to make this bucket list dream come true!
