Chuck Booth (Website Owner and Lead Baseball Analyst)
I am a Guinness Book of World Records Holder, for being the Fastest person ever to see all 30 MLB home ball parks in only 23 days! I did this from Apr.6-April.28th of 2012. I broke my own record after first establishing the mark with a 24 days submission in 2009.
I am also going to work as a travel mentor to several people that will attempt to break or set individual records in this same category in 2013 and 2014.
I also have created my own dedicated page at the Reports that will focus solely on road trips such as this by extreme ballpark chasers, for more info click here.
I am also a baseball historian/author and have written a book on the traveling to all 30 MLB Parks, you can see a preview right here. I have been to all 30 MLB Parks 4 times in the last 6 years and also have been to all 50 USA States in the last 5 years. I have a strong knowledge on the travel industry and the 27 MLB Cities that have franchises.
I usually prepare 3-4 weekly articles (any topic goes) 1 of these articles will be payroll breakdowns for every team for every team from Sept. 5/2012 until training camp. In the winter Fridays are ‘Franchise Fridays.’
I am attempting to bring the history for each of the 30 MLB Franchises into a 5 part series for each club that will focus on 1. The teams history. 2. The hitters 3. The pitchers and 4. The Ball Park that they play in and 5.
Mission Statement: I am aiming this website to be a magazine styled format in which passionate writers may express themselves in thought provoking articles that will really resonate with our readers.
We are also going to be airing 1 Podcast show a week from every March-October and 1 per 2 weeks from October to March.
We look to social media in continuing the interaction with our fans. We are part of the Facebook and Twitter Movement. As I like to say, “‘we are not your cookie cutter’” website and we will always strive to maintain our original hard hitting content that will separate us from the other places that cover baseball.
