Songs You Hear The Most At The MLB BallParks

Who can forget Neil Diamond singing Sweet Caroline at Fenway Park right after the Boston Marathon bombing?

Who can forget Neil Diamond singing Sweet Caroline at Fenway Park right after the Boston Marathon bombing?

I saw a ton of MLB games live last year.  224 to be exact.  I spent a lot of time listening to music at the park before and after the game.

I was also fed a steady dose of ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars, ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift, and if I hear “Shut up and Dance with me” one more time by Walk the Moon, I am just going to snap.

Baltimore played the best music at the yard hands down.  They were huge into Silento’s Whip, Nae-Nae, but also one can’t not love the “Thank God I’m a country boy” (which I have seen played numerous times at Kauffman Stadium as well.”

During several games at Camden Yards they also played “(Apache – Jump On it”) by Sugarhill Gang, and this little number is played every where.

I started to think of the most common played tunes at the park.

Rob Base’s and EZ Rock’s “It Takes Two” is routinely played at baseball venue’s after a doubleplay.  Michael Jackson’s “Wanna be Starting Something” seems to find its way onto the audio deck when a rally is started. Read the rest of this entry

For the last several years my buddy Josh Robbins and I have come up with ways to beat our individual world records for ballpark chasing.

My record is all 30 MLB Parks (every pitch) in just 23 Calendar Days.  I accomplished this feat in 2012.  You can read about that trip here.  After scouring the MLB Schedule for 2016, there is not even an attempt to try for the record this season.

Unless it changes, it will be another campaign I will sip (Gas Monkey Cinnamon Tequilla) as the world record holder for another year.

Travel Tuesdays: National Car Rental ‘Rent Rent Reward’ Program An Absolute Good Move

The competition can be fierce for Car Rental Companies, but the best reward companies for cars are National/Alamo/Enterprise followed by Thrifty/Budget and Hertz.  Avis doesn't have a great rewards program, but you can get good deals on them for weekend rentals anywhere in the world!

So you are looking to rent cars over several weekends – or weekdays from the end of Aug till the end of January.  You would be crazy not to set up a profile on the National Car Rental Rewards Program “Emerald Club” and then partake in this current deal .

A couple of months ago, after signing up for the latest promotion of rent, rent = reward, I cashed in one of my free rental days at National Car Rental, and made a reservation under the umbrella of this deal.

I gained 300 PTS for the rental (1/2 way to a free car rental – as you only need 600 PTS for a free rental day, which is a free car rental for every two rentals.).  I also gained 250 PTS for buying the prepaid fuel option as a selection (another 250 PTS).

I then took their survey for another 50 PTS, then voila – I earned enough points to qualify for another free day! Read the rest of this entry

My 224 MLB Game Journey Was Fast ‘N’ Loud – Gas Monkey Garage Style!!

For those of you who may not know even by now, I am a huge Gas Monkey Garage Fan (aka the TV Show Fast “N” Loud) on Discovery Channel.    I liked the logo so much that I decided to buy three hats to take with me across the country to see my 224 MLB Games in all 30 MLB Parks trip.

88000 Miles later, 35 States and all 30 MLB Parks saw the lid.

The hat made its way onto several TV interviews, newspaper articles and I also made it to the Gas Money Garage and Gas Monkey Bar and Grill near Dallas TX.

Travel Tuesdays: The Megabus Tutorial To The $1 Fares

megabus allows you to switch all itineraries (whether it is one journey or 20, for a $1 fee to trade in for other fares.) I traded 20 trips - not to be used for $27 credit towards a new fare that was a peak trip. It cost me just $3.00 to pull off the maneuver after a small booking fee was added. These guys also don't require paper tickets (although you can use a computer printout of your reservation0.

I owe a lot of my PR campaigning during my entire year long MLB Trip to a man named Kelly Van De Walle.  Kelly’s marketing company works for Megabus – and he sought out a partnership for the odyssey after he read a glowing article I wrote towards the Bus Line back in March.

I will continue to promote this entity for my entire life now.  This is the way to travel on a tight budget.  During my 200 or so journeys with Megabus this season I had many people ask me how I was able to snag the $1 fares – since they don’t seem to ever have them.

So pay attention for the next few sentences because I am going to tell you how I did it. Read the rest of this entry

So I ended up at 224 Games after a flurry of maneuvers and last second scheduling.

Here is how I arrived at that mark.

I went to 15 Doubleheaders in 30 days during Septemer (5 natural doubles occurred in parks with certain rainouts causing them.  Philly, Detroit, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Baltimore all had twinbills at their parks in this month.

Making every game on my schedule was always a goal, and for the year, there was only 3 missed games and all were made up at the park in which I witnessed.

On Oct.2, 2015 I witnessed a contest at my 30th MLB park of the season, marking the 4th time in 7 years I had seen all of the stadiums. Read the rest of this entry

I am right in the middle of the most torrid stretch of games I have ever gone to.  Since 15 days ago on Friday night (Sept.10) – I have attended 9 doubleheaders in 15 days.  I have 2 more twinbills to plow through on Sunday, Sept.27/2015 and Monday Sept.28/2015.  This will make 27 Games in 16 total days.

Among the games were a doubleheader I witnessed in Detroit on Monday Sept.21/2015.  Even more significant is that I was originally scheduled for Nats Park that night for the 1st 5 months of my journey, only changing it in early Sept. Read the rest of this entry

It was a week in which I had many scares for weather causing me to miss a game I had on the schedule.

Lets go to the Thursday Sept 10th in Philly, that did become a postponed affair. Luckily for yours truly – they rescheduled the game for the next night at Citizens Bank Park.  It did cause me to take a game off the list in Baltimore at Camden, but was a no-brainer considering CBP is the closest park to home base in Sicklerville, N.J.

I then drove to Baltimore on Saturday. This was met with a 3 hour and 2 minute rain delay, even though it never started really raining until 90 minutes into this stoppage.  It is one of my pet peeves about the MLB right now.  Preemptive delays are bogus…and happening at an alarming rate.  I can even understand if the month weren’t September.  But really, with 40 man rosters, and ample pitchers, you delay the start of the game because you think it is going to start pouring.  Play the damn game until the rain persists fellas.

So it finally happened after 174 Games into the trip, and 148 Days overall.  I saw a no-hitter tossed by Jake Arrieta in my only game at Dodger Stadium this year.

It was one day after my birthday party in Phoenix yesterday.

It also marked the 375th game I have been to in the MLB ever.

My buddy Ken Lee had to wait 1198 games to make his 1st no hitter count (Although he is also one of 18 crowds to ever see a 4 HR game in 2002, when Mike Cameron blasted 4 bolts at US Cellular Field.)

My pal Tike Narry has now seen 4 no-hitters or perfect games in his last 360 contests after waiting almost 600 matchups to witness his 1st 9 frames without any hits allowed. Read the rest of this entry

So there are ups and downs in this trip as I have ventured out on this journey.  It is not just the baseball games that I am going to….I am trying to fully heal my body and brain after having a bad accident years ago where I was hit and run by a guy.

I have come back 97% to what I need to be, but every once in a while that 3% seeps into the foray.  I had one of those events yesterday.

Over the weekend, we hosted 35 ballpark chasers at my friend Ken Lee’s house in Renton.  This is virtually every extreme ballpark guru in the group across the nation, with the exception of a few omissions.  Ken and I sponsored a barbeque at his house in Renton, WA, USA (Home of Manfish Brewing) – and because of my free car rental days, I was able to secure transportation for all who needed shuttling around Saturday, Aug.22/2015.  I also drove for 7 hours around the city picking up the top ‘ballpark chasers’ of the country.

It was a grand old-time, and all of us had the time of our lives, however I probably kicked up the adrenaline too much, and Monday was a big let down.  I am feeling much better again at today.  The 2nd Annual Ballpark Chasers Meetup in Seattle was a resounding success, and we set the bar high for future venue’s hosting the event in future years.

The following people had a big impact on my weekend: Ken Lee, Scott Bultman JR, Gary Herman. Mike Casiano, Paul Nieuwland, Craig Landgren, Doug Miller, Josh Robbins, Mark Chesna, Tike and Dawn Narry – and of course the rest of the 35 people at the barbeque and 60 or so people at the actual games this weekend

Freakish Delays For Travel Over FRI/SAT Almost Cause Game Misses: 217 MLB Games Trip Still Intact For 2015

a 30 hour travel sector tested my limit and sanity once again. Overall it was not a very good week of execution on either my part, or parties that were helping me on the voyages.  I am hoping that having my car with me for the majority will help clean that up in the next 10 days in the Midwest, Toronto and Baltimore, before I hit the West Coast for an 11 day road swing.   At least I made it to Yankee Stadium early enough to receive this killer cowboy hat.  Unfortunately I will be selling this on EBAY to help pay for some of the fiasco that was this week.

If felt like a page Right Out Of Ripley ‘s

I started out Friday morning (Aug.07, 2015) with much swagger.  I began the day with an exciting interview opportunity in which I nailed for a potential paying gig surrounding MLB.

Since I couldn’t take my car to a Park and Ride in Sicklerville, N.J. (since I would be gone for 40 hours on Friday and Saturday), I walked 2 miles to my public bus – in order to make the connecting transport to Philadelphia Amtrak 30th Station. I did not want to risk a tow charge for using the Park N ride service for too long.

I ate a heavy helping of Ramen noodles before leaving.  Hey, you gotta save dough where you can.  My friend Gary Herman gave me a free coupon for a Chic – fil-a sandwich earlier this week – which I capitalized on since it was 800 feet from my public bus Friday..

NJ Transit took me to the Lindenwold PATCO Speedline.  I have taken this method all week.  It costs just $3 for a one way maneuver into downtown Philly.

If I am headed to New York – they have a Megabus pickup location at Philly independence Hall.  It only takes 25 minutes.

Today was not one of those days.  Trips to Washington are picked up from Amtrak 30th Station only. It is still a $3 move for me because it falls within the free interloop zone for light rail trips out of Jefferson Station.  (Right across from the Greyhound Station on Filbert Street).

So back to the pending weirdness.  I arrived ready to make this journey from the Speedline, when all of the transit rail systems were down to the oil leak a few miles up the train tracks. Read the rest of this entry

He will be bringing his talents to Philadelphia, effectively shutting down traffic in all directions during late September, causing this ballpark chaser to scramble some more.

Here is a new one for the books.. Extra costs and maneuvers needed to be pulled off because The Pope Is Coming to Philly Sept.24 – Sept.27.

The city of Philly will not run busses through downtown like I needed them too.

So instead if weaving around on $1 bus fares on Megabus, I will have to flip cities between New York and Washington instead.

Then the Reds @ Nationals caused me a chance to alter some more plans – since they decided to reschedule a make up game in Washington for Monday, September 28th at 3 pm. Read the rest of this entry

They call them the dog days of summer, and they are right to an extent.

As I sit here outside Yankee Stadium – waiting for a 130 am bus back to Philly, I am reminded how long this season has been

Tonight’s win for New York  marked the 146th game I have seen this year in 124 Days.  There is 71 games left in 59 days left.

I am going to Washington for the next three days, but also have a game in the Bronx on Saturday afternoon, before catching am Amtrak train to the District.

After that game, a 130 AM bus ride back to Philly, followed by a 4 mile walk back to home base in the wee AM hours will take its toll.  There are no public busses that run at that time of day to make it back to home base. Read the rest of this entry

Maybe it was because of a tough travel day on Monday, but I never even realized I could have just stayed in Philly for a game once my initial plans were derailed to Washington.

In this whole year trip I have over 300 reservation numbers to keep track of.  On this Tuesday I made a rookie mistake.

All the way back in March I switched out a bus trip to Washington from the Amtrak Station in Philadelphia.  The idea back then was to stay overnight in the District Monday Aug.03, 2015.

This idea changed with the prospect of coming back nightly to home base in Sicklerville, NJ. for the entire 6 game homestand for the Nationals this weekend

It is kind of weird the only time i have posed for a picture in front of a Megabus was for a reservation I had that wasn't even valid anymore.

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

The week started off in New York City at 12:01 AM pn Monday morning,  I drove back to Sicklerville, NJ, completing 26 days where I drove almost 17000 Miles.  It was a crazy stretch of travel, but had a nice ending.

Monday afternoon came around the bend, and I was on my way to Baltimore.  The idea was to come back to Sicklerville every 2 nights, while blogging the other night at Starbucks in between.  The tolls on this roundtrip run around $30.

As soon as I made it to Baltimore, I stopped off at the White Marsh area (Exit 67) on the I – 95.  There is a way to avoid the last $4 toll towards the ballpark by taking the 40 West.

I know of this parking place at a casino nearby (for free) and watched the game.  It was an extra inning affair, and I was honestly beatdown from the previous week of traveling. Read the rest of this entry

Needless to say I am going to triumph the company Megabus here in this article.  For those that don’t know the story, they saved my trip from about a 185 games to about 215 – 220 games early in the season.

I bought half of my journey back then for $1 each, and did the same thing halfway through this odyssey.  With me being handicapped as a Canadian – for a plunging Canadian Dollar, this help me off set this.

Back in mid 2014, I saw the trend of the Loonie heading south, so I invested as much savings as I could – stuffing my American $ bank account.  So while I may have a tough time traveling to the United States past this year, I will make it through my trip.

In my original design of this concept, I planned to travel a lot of games on the Eastern Seaboard by car.  As I like to say “Gucci this, you see the price of that s-it!  So far, I have only made a few trips via my own vehicle.  The only drawback was I wanted to see 20 MLB games at Fenway, and now that total is done at 6 parks.

Anyways, Megabus created a whole new scope of savings I could use for Baltimore, Washington and the New York teams. Being stationed in Philly is the middle ground between all – and the perfect conduit.

This is the reason I am at 33 games for Nats Park and 20 for Camden Yards.  Coupled with Stub Hub cheap tickets, and you get the idea on how I have saved money.

I wrote a massive article on the Megabus company, and they actually sought out me as a potential partner – combining efforts to make this trip a media whirlwind.  Having a “PR” guy from the 3rd biggest Transportation in America bodes well for having requests come back.

By the end of the year, I will have 100 interviews done for this trip in all forms of social media.  This has been a great partnership, and I hope to work with them in the future.

megabus allows you to switch all itineraries (whether it is one journey or 20, for a $1 fee to trade in for other fares.)  I traded 20 trips - not to be used for $27 credit towards a new fare that was a peak trip.  It cost me just $3.00 to pull off the maneuver after a small booking fee was added.  These guys also don't require paper tickets (although you can use a computer printout of your reservation0.

I have a projected budget of $22, 500 for this year long journey.  $300 of it went to Greyhound and $300 of it went to Megabus, but here is the difference.  I ended up doing only 16 journeys for Greyhound compared to 120 from Megabus.

Sure there is a built in advantage for those awesome $1 Megabus rides that I purchased yes, but another facet of Megabus that kicks ass would be their exchange policy.  I will divulge that in one moment. Lets just check out Greyhound’s archaic system. 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.

DAY DATE

So I was put to the test more in the last three weeks than throughout the whole trips.  I logged over 10000 Miles on the road from July.1 – July.14/2015.  It was worth it and I have had a few days of rest now to gather momentum for the second half run.

I have altered my schedule to accommodate a lot more rest in the 2nd half as I will be making lots of more media appearances on TV and radio.

I added some games in New York City, Baltimore and Washington,  and took some games away from Boston and Philadelphia.

As of this date, I have eaten 44 hotdogs, drank 48 beers, took down 100 energy drinks, and 4 gallons of coffee.  I have  logged 45,000 Miles by air, ground and public transport.  I have used 22 of 40 free rental days.  The Buick Verano I just returned put on 12,500 Miles of that alone.  I now have a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze for the 2nd half that I will venture on similar mileage with..

The GOAL: 183 Straight Days (every single day at least 1 gm) Of ALL 30 MLB Parks Trip In 2015 (217 Games) view full year schedule.

The CAUSE:  To Raise Money for Concussion Awareness (via Sports Legacy Institute. donate money here) Through Inspiring Others.

So about 2 months ago I found out about this car rental company called SILVERCAR, locate on the Interwebs at http://www.silvercar.com, I was definitely intrigued by the idea of the idea of having the same rental car always as an option.  The problem was the cost at first.  It was a premium rental vehicle that was in the $90 a day for all the costs included.  But I downloaded their app anyway, while doing some more investigation.

We all have been stuck with a rental car that wasn’t to our liking at all right?  It is a catches-catch-can at the rental locations, and if you are not a preferred member of a rewards program, you don’t stand a chance to receive your ideal car.

I was sitting on 40 free rental car days at National Car Rental this year. have 5 other free days from a Canadian Base Rewards Program (also using National Car Rental as my designated rental location), while also possessing a long term rental car that is at my brothers in Sicklerville.  This is when SILVERCAR offered me a nice coupon discount for half-off a 2 day rental.

Knowing that San Francisco Airport carries a $20 Airport recovery fee for another car rental ensures that even my wicked National free days will still see a monetary hit when I rent from that location.

It set up perfectly to give them a shot because i needed a car from June 25th – June 27th, while I was also picking up Scott Bultman (going to 60 games and 21 parks with me) at Oakland – then dropping him off in San Francisco on the 27th.  I began to think it was even better when I determined using public transportation in the BAY area was going to run me $40 anyway.

In staying with my buddy Tike’s family in San Leandro (about 4 miles from Oakland downtown), we also all wanted to hang out – scurrying around in only one vehicle on June 26th.  The Audi 4 selection at full size was looking like a perfect selection.

On Thursday June 25th I dropped a rental car off at National, proceeded back to the SFO terminal, and my Silver Car experience began.  I took an off-site parking Park ‘N’ Fly shuttle bus to the location.  During my trip over there, i touched a button on the app to let them know I was coming.  My phone assured me they were waiting.

I was greeted by a nice young lady that knew my name, and had a car waiting for me.  It was this car pictured below.

20150626_094148She quickly informed me of the features of the car, and i scanned the barcode on the windshield to start my rental.  It was that easy, no fumbling around with credit cards, after I quickly just proved i was who I said I was the agent.

I was blown away by the options on this car.  First off, having free WiFi is a baseball bloggers dream on a rental car.  It virtually means anytime that you are in your car – you are connected to the superhighway.  I started envisioning long weekend roadtrips with several ballpark chasers, and all of us being plugged into our social media network.  This alone is worth a lot of cash on a daily basis.

The beautiful brand new Silver Audi 4 only had 2500 miles on it, and had the aura of a new car smell.

It was time for me to leave, and the lady ran down that I she already saved the rental car companies address into the favorites for the GPS navigational system, and I was out of there.  By the way, for those people who are not familiar with directions to rental car locations, this alleviates any strenuous pressure in finding your drop off point when your contract is up.

During the drive, I was able to listen to satellite radio – and of course the MLB Network.  This is a must have in any rental I have, owning a baseball website, and also going to a game every year. Even with the best of car rental places I belong too, there is never any certainty the satellite radio will work for all – or parts of your trip, based on trial subscription.

Right after that, i noticed the transponder toll pass for the California highway.  Having one of these can run $5 – $7 a day, and it was included in this rental.  You still have to pay for tolls encountered along the trip, but also at a time-saving rate in the FASTPASS lanes.  Having this for a place like New York City would be ideal.

The car had plenty of entertainment gadgets from the navigational guides, to dc volts to plug adapters in, a USB port as well.  Yes, these are standard in premium cars, but there was 3 different portals to choose from.

This ride was a smooth one back to San Leandro from San Francisco this night.  I showed it off to my buddies, and we all agreed it was a nice looking car, and that the Wi FI feature was worth about $7 – 10 for us.  The reception strength for the internet was strong. On Saturday morning, I was in the car for 3 hours at o.Co Coliseum catching up on blogs.

We ended up using the car to pass over 4 different toll bridges, and the use of the navigational guides was key in avoiding several bad traffic jams over the day.

This vehicle fit 4 adults, and one kid very comfortably, and all of us had enough room.

One of the features I did not use was there value play of a $5 fill up option.  Instead of worrying about filling the car up, you could have them do it, and they would only charge the rate of gas at the nearest gas station, and then just add $5.  This is a convenient service, especially if you are just too late to do it yourself.  All other rental companies would make the $5 off you after pumping just $8 worth of gas to begin with.

Because I had a coupon, it knocked my price of the 2 day rental from $162 – $92, but the price point of $81 all in at that location is very competitive with the leading car rental companies.  Of course I am thrilled to have had the bill under a hundred, but the extra’s we had during the time i had the Silver Audi was well worth the price difference of the cheapest rate i could get even having free rental days.

When I returned the car, a young man named Lamar greeted me at the drop point, and he couldn’t have been more cool to help me with all I needed to know.  This team of Silver Car may be a young organization, but they have bright, intelligent people working for them.

In the end, I probably wouldn’t rent a car from SILVERCAR if it were just me going into the car, yet the more people who get added to a roadtrip, suddenly this idea seems a lot better as an overall deal.

I definitely recommend everyone to try this new rental company out at least once.
