My New 2015 30 MLB Parks/183 Day Record Trip Is Revealed (226 Games)

a miller park

The count is in, and it may increase a little – or decrease a little.  It has taken me about a week’s worth of hours to formulate this game plan.  I have had to revamp the itinerary several times for cost and time considerations.

I initially had wanted to spend the first few months on the West Coast, however the parks are too far from each other.  Once I established that was a problem, it made life easier.  Factor in some great scores on tickets for the Red Sox and Phillies, and I am looking at a ton of games on the Eastern Seaboard.

Highlighted in my April schedule are 12 Doubleheader Attempts.  Yes I am crazy, but this a good way to put a lot of games up early while I am freshest.

ESPN has also placed its first 5 games for Sunday night contests and surprise…the Yankees are in 3 of the contests.  I am attending 4 of these games as part of Doubleheader days.  The only one not consisting of 2 games is the MLB Season Opener at Wrigley Field on Apr.5, 2015.

I have slated to see most teams at least 3 times at home (except for Tropicana Field which I will see 2x), and all teams at least once on the road.  I will see Citizens Bank Park, Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, Miller Park, Safeco Field, US Cellular Field, Nats Park and Citi Field at least 10games or more.

There are 46 Doubleheaders in the 179 games played, with potentially more coming on the way.  I could have a few taken away with my schedule projections as well.   Right now the Royals, Padres, White Sox, Astros and Indians have not placed their start times yet (Shame on them, LOL).

A lot of clubs have also not given away certain games, with Saturdays and Sundays being most common, for special TV dates and so forth.  I am still thinking I could add a few more games.

One of the factors that is influencing my trip is the Canadian Dollar.  Yes… I am a citizen, and our dollar is being thrashed right now versus the Yankee Greenback. I at least had some foresight to deposit a lot of cash into a US Account months ago – when it was near par levels.

I will have to monitor that situation as well.  It has already cost me a chance to go for my own World Record.  I wrote a blog about 3 weeks ago stating I may go for it.  A lot of teams have come up with different start times on the weekend, and it blew any schedule chance to put a record streak together.  If I were just set on breaking that record, I could afford to spend some extra loot, however I must stay focused on the whole year.

Attending a game a day at least will be tough, but I am up to the task.  To my knowledge, this will smash any record previously for seeing games in one calendar year as an MLB fan, and certainly for a person seeing all 30 MLB parks.

I have 2 more blogs coming out on why I am doing this streak, followed by followed by a press release coming soon after that.  There is also a chance for some big news regarding the trip that could help with the marketing of it all.

When the season starts, there will be a daily blog preview of each individual travel day, I will be live tweeting from the ball games, and also writing summaries of the games.  All of that, and run a website when I get a spare minute or 2. 

Here is the Trip.

Pretty much 97% will stay the same – I may alter a few games based on Doubleheaders becoming available. Each team scheduled for min 3 games so far.

179 days of action (I didn’t include the 4 day ALL – Star Break.) Could add more DH with more ESPN Sunday games, or any TBD left could help out. KC, CWS, SD, HOU and CLE all not listed game times yet and could create 6 – 8 more contest

226 Games in 179 Game Play Days + 4 day break for ALL – Star Game (183 Days) 47 Doubleheader Attempts. Have to see home team field for min 5 innings to qualify it as a game put on the board.  .

I will see my two favorite teams (Yankees and Nationals) in several different cities and are the most common opponent – along with the Braves and Rays).

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
