Road Trip of Baseball Parks in America

WE LOVE BASEBALL!

img_5112

We are die-hard San Francisco Giants fans. This blog post goes to press before the big, DO OR DIE, Wild Card Game tonight at 5:00 p.m. PST.  It’s West against East in New York Mets territory. It’s Madison Bumgarner against Noah Syndergaard.  The winner goes to the National League Division Series against the Cubs.  The loser goes home until next year. Giants fans like us must be nervous wrecks.  This is it kids…

So while I was looking up pitcher stats, I got to thinking about some friends who did the whole baseball stadium tour across America.  Wouldn’t that be cool?  Although, in my opinion, AT & T Park might be a tough one to top, I just love being in a stadium.  The energy, the American tradition and food to try in different states sounds like a great vacation to me! Here is a list of parks on my bucket list:
