IMG_3843On the set of Fox 9 wishing I could wear my shades to combat bright lighting.

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

Day Date, Venue, Opponents

FRI Aug.14, 2015 (The Rogers Center in Toronto), 7:07 Blue Jays vs Yankees *1/1 games this year there.

Prepaid Expenses:

Blue Jays ticket – $11 (both Scott Bultman and I knew once the team acquired Tulo, tickets would be at a premium.  We jumped at the tickets on Stubhub before the seller caught wind.  Only wish we would have bought more. They are going for $66 each as a low for the 11 game win streak Canadian club)

PARKING: $6.  yep. 0.4 miles away

Day Of Expenses:

GAS –  $45

Tolls – $15

Method of Transportation:

I am taking an all night bus to Chicago after crashing on a friend’s couch for a few hours, and taking a quick shower on Minny.

Scott Bultman JR. returns to the streak for the first game since July 9th, but he and I will still see 14 more games together – including his 30th Park on Saturday at Camden Yards.

We meet near Union Station at 6:30, pick up my Canadian rental car, and I go to my home country for the only game this year.  I do get to see my Yankees play.

Where I am headed to next?

CBP/Yankee Stadium Aug.19

Coors Field – Aug. 20

Hot Dogs eaten – 56

Beers Consumed – 62

Miles traveled thus far by all modes (58500 Miles).  Before you say that is a lot, I did that many by air/ground in my 2012 World Record Streak.

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/
