Chuck Booth’s 2015 MLB Park Historical Road Trip

nohitter...

The GOAL: 183 Straight Days (every single day at least 1 gm) Of ALL 30 MLB Parks Trip In 2015 (221 Games) view full year schedule.

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

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.

These guys have been with me for games at 17 and 15 contests respectively this year, and it was our last game altogether for the season.

Scott Bultman JR (running mate for about 50 games and 22 parks each this campaign, and he is pushing for about 165 games on the year himself, and I have been working to each boost up our total games for the year.

With swift maneuvering and a nice $800 credit from Delta Airlines to play with – I have now added 2 additional games to my itinerary, and would sit at 221 games if I made all of my scheduled contests.  Be sure to look at the list links.

I now have 3 games at Wrigley Field, 2 at Miller Park, 2 at Nats Park, 1 at Yankee Stadium and 1 at Coors Field to end August and kick off September.

One of the most exciting things I have re-scheduled – is adding 5 games to Comerica Park (including a natural doubleheader on Sept.21st, 2015).  I also added a doubleheader that will see me hit Comerica Park and Wrigley Field on the same day just two days later on Sept.23rd.

Trip Stats Through Aug.30, 2015: 

Projected budget – $22500, I am plus $790 as of right now where I thought I would be financially.)

Hot Dogs eaten – 97

Beers Consumed – 97

Pretzels – 74

Energy Drinks – 161 (including coffee)

Miles traveled thus far by all modes (67600 Miles).  

Interviews TV, Radio, Internet, Podcast, Newsprint – 84 total interviews (79 since June.01.)

Home team record is now astoundingly good at 99 – 75 (.569 win %).  Not bad when you consider that CBP in Philadelphia has the most games watched so far.

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/
