I sit here humbled that I made it this far in my journey.  4 years ago at this time, I was not in a good place.  I was working, going home and trying to fend off headaches, dizziness and any loud sounds.

The government in my home town province of Canada, was not helping me with my claim versus a 2010 accident where I was hit and ran by a driver of a big truck.  I would later hire a personal injury and take them to task.  These were the dark days of depression one suffers from repeated concussions.  It even went to other parts of my body like arms and shoulders – tingling from stress.

So having said that, one of the things I did during this stretch was still capitalize my best skills with what was given to me. I turned to professional handicapping and earning Air Miles through a google search engine.

I used all the anger I had towards the situation – and it fueled me to earn as much as I could while on the shelf. Read the rest of this entry

DAY DATE

So you think July was weird, well the last 2 months plus a little of October should shape up to be weirder.  I am sitting at Camden Yards last night – and my buddy Scott tells me he can’t make the game tonight – because he missed his flight on the West Coast.

I told him the odds of having something happen to you for the traveling the whole year go up exponentially when you are on the road.  I lose stuff pretty routinely.  Mostly I can recover these items, but some I like to wonder if “Casper, the un-friendly ghost” got his grubby little mitts on.

The A’s had 7 All Stars in 2014. After today’s deal of Scott Kazmir, only the injured Sean Doolittle is left.

The Astros made a smart deal to improve and the A’s did the right thing by selling at the peak value.

Also, I talk about gum throwing and styling at home after a grand slam.

Makes 87 Games in 71 Days, featuring 17 Doubleheaders, 1 missed and 1 madeup doubleheader, and one outright miss (Apr.07, that was cancelled and now rescheduled for July.07, 2015, in which I will be attending anyways.

2015 Trip schedule.

Changing Of The Schedule.

If you click the link above saying 2015 trip schedule, it looks vastly different from it did a few days ago.

First off, I have an opportunity in Tampa Bay to do something special for the long-term benefit of my career if I come back at the end of the year.  I am not allowed to get into specifics right now.  It simply has altered my schedule to include the final 6 games on the docket to include a 3 game set in Atlanta at the end of September, and the last 3 games will be at Tropicana Field.

Other changes I have made include taking off a game on the July 4th night in Atlanta.  I have thought about this day long and hard, and decided I would rather spend the night hanging out in the nation’s capital for the fireworks show with my brother’s family, rather than try to complete a 6 game – 3 day effort.

To help out in another aspect to accommodate this, I am also adding a Cincinnati/St. Louis doubleheader on Wed July 1st, 2015, and have added another game on Thursday July.2 in St. Louis.

I was lucky enough to have been interviewed by the Marlins today during the pregame radio broadcast, and also met longtime Marlins + Montreal Expos broadcaster Dave Van Horn. After a chat about the top 5 parks, I listed Busch Stadium as my #5 favorite.  I was devastated to have completed the only 2 games there earlier this year.

In looking at my Thursday July.02 original doubleheader.  It listed the Mets/Phillies at 1;10/6:35.  Originally I was going to use Amtrak, eventually I switched the method to Philly for a Megabus.com trip.  But all have flaws in them, and are way too dependent on things to go right to count as a 2 games in one day maneuver.

The problem is also driving all night to Chicago for a Cubs/White Sox doubleheader after, keep finances in check, and then turnaround and drive 800 miles back to Washington for an 11 AM game on Saturday July 4th game.

If this were three years ago, no doubt I could do this trip.  Heck, I could still probably pull it off now.  However, the previous schedule has 3 different travel plans that I can cancel for just  a few dollars, and save during the long run with time.

Also I was looking to help my buddy Scott finish up Yankee Stadium (which he will now do on Sunday July.19/2015 with me,  He and I are also going to attend the AAA All Star Game in Omaha Nebraska, before heading to US Cellular and MIller Park for a couple of doubleheaders.

In all, the end result is only a loss of one game listed, to now make it a 216 game trek. 

 

The 30 MLB Park tour by travel or air is one of the most adrenaline filled chases one can endure. It is like the Amazing Race, meets Survivor, against Planes, Trains and Automobiles.  But even if you just love to travel to a few games each year, or maybe can't get away from your town, but want to know when and where everyone is playing.  The MLB Reports has you covered for all 2430 games in 2014, the ALL - Star Events, and Post Season to come after that.

HOUSTON  – Chuck Booth had an NCAA offer to play baseball at Liberty University years ago but he couldn’t take the opportunity  because of brain injuries — nine concussions to be exact. But what he’s doing to raise money for concussion research may surprise you.

“I’m recovering from a concussion – my latest one and the doctor said you need six months off,” says Booth. ” I basically took my insurance settlement and said I’m gonna go to baseball games every single day of this year.”

Booth vowed to attend at least one major league baseball game each day of the regular season because of his love for the game and to raise money for concussion research and awareness.

This feat equals 219 total games in 183 consecutive days — in all 30 major league ballparks.

The Mariners keep giving the ball to a closer who is having a terrible season and he was awful last night. Derrek Norris had a rotten night at the plate. And yet both were celebrating at the end!

Meanwhile in Little League, a nice friendly game turned petty because of one coach and competitive because of my nature!
