You Could Try To Attempt A World Record By Going To All 30 MLB Parks In 25 Days In 2017 By Driving!

baseball-map-framed-with-plaque

So I have done about everything there is to do in for World Records in going to all the 30 MLB Parks.  I was able to hit all 30 MLB Parks in just 23 Days during 2012, besting my own 2009 record of 30/24.

The only way I could have done anything more substantial was to do what my idea was in 2015.  I went to 224 MLB Games in all the 183 Days of MLB Action – live at all 30 MLB Parks, spanning the entire season – and showing up at a ballpark every single day.

I am now 40 years old and don’t feel like doing this anymore, but every year I put out a schedule for all 30 MLB Parks in the forms of a record.

I honestly don’t think that I would top 30 MLB Parks in 23 Days since there is practically never any schedule that would allow that to be attempted.  If someone on this globe wants to take a run at – I welcome it.

However, my buddy Josh Robbins holds the Ground Record (all 30 MLB Parks) done by land – in just 26 Calendar Days during the 2008 season.) Read the rest of this entry

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – December 17, 2016

yankeesstaidumcapture
My final stop on my New York voyage is New Yankee Stadium. I realized that the hugeness and coldness of the stadium makes sense when you consider the pressure of carrying the Yankee label.

But across the street is the place where MOST of the glory took place. It made me bring up an Alexandre Dumas novel.

Jump On Prices For Megabus Riding – As You Can Book Now Through May.23 – For Prices As Low As $1

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.

These guys also don’t require paper tickets (although you can use a computer printout of your reservations).  Megabus has WIFI and dc volt outlets for every one of their 81 seats one each trip.

Today,  Megabus is allowing bookings until May.23, 2016.  To take advantage of $1 fares – you have to pounce rught now while the getting is good.

This bus company is perfectly situated for travel between the MLB cities of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minnesota and Pittsburgh.

I used these guys for 200 trips last year during my 224 games trip in 183 days.  . 

In New York, with the new 7 line train going all the way to the Javvitz Center, this takes you right to where the pick up is for NY departures.

In Washington, Union Station is the area to board.  Boston has South Station as an area to board and also to be dropped off.

Baltimore has two sites in Whitemarsh Park and Ride Area.  Chicago is less than a half mile from Chicago Union Station.

Minnesota has the location for pick up and drop about 500 feet from an entrance to Target in the RF area. 

Since there are only $1 fares for a few seat per ride, jump on the chance to book early.  Even if you have to change it up later, (There is only a $1 exchange fare), this method is worth it. 

This is a perfect scenario for any MLB Fan.

Attendance was up 162, 221 fans over the 2014 total, or 0.2%. The same five teams topped over 3 Million fans in 2015 as did in 2014. Dodgers, Cards, Giants, Yankees and Angels.

Philadelphia lost almost 600K fans year over year – and were the MLB’s club with the worst fall.

Oakland had that distinction the AL – taking a hit of 235K – amongst their 1st non playoff year in 4 seasons.

The World Series Royals set an all time franchise record for attendance in 2015, and had the biggest climb at the turnstiles at +752K.  The club rounded out the top 10 for the MLB as well.

The Mets had the best jump in attendance at 420K in the NL.  The other teams to eclipse a 400K jump were the Toronto Blue Jays (419K) Houston Astros (401K).  All 3 teams made the postseason. Read the rest of this entry

The whole travel industry works on the 24 hour clock.  This actually works to the MLB road trip world out there.  During my year long trip, I mastered the art of the 24 hour clock.

My favorite move was to rent a car for Friday – Sunday, that would only cost two rental days at a car company.  Most of the time it would include leaving for a Friday game at 5:30 – and the car was due at a 5:30 on Sunday.

This is great for jamming at least 3 games in the 48 hours, and sometimes you can do a doubleheader on the Saturday.

I told my buddy Scott of breaking down the cost of watching baseball games into individual innings – kind of like bowling frames. Read the rest of this entry

On my year-long road trip I vowed not to spend much money on the food at the Ballparks.  I ended up only spending around $250 for 224 Games on the road.  So where did I eat?

If I wasn’t at a home base somewhere, or at a free breakfast from a hotel, it was usually Subway, Wendy’s, Walmart (yep, they have food too), McDonalds, Burger King or Little Caesars Pizza.

Since I didn’t want to enter the USA with a wad of cash the several times I took entrance at the borders, my wallet was stacked with Gift cards from these establishments.

I also downloaded all of their apps on my mobile phone to look for deals.

Subway was the clubhouse leader for meals eaten.  I bought 12 – $50 gift cards from this restaurant for this journey.  Check with your local chain, but every time I did this I was able to secure a free foot long premium sandwich.

My food bill was saved a great deal by eating 12 meals on Subway just for buying $50 gift card on a dozen different occasions. Read the rest of this entry

MLB Baseball Clubs Should Make Single Game Tickets Available Before Christmas

The home site of the 2015 MLB ALL - Star Game, The Great American Ball Park..Baseball owners, and the MLB alike, should really think about having tickets made available for purchase prior to the Christmas season every year. Both of the NBA and NHL have free rein on this concept, with their season's barely being midway yet in each calendar year at the end of December. The supply and demand for NFL tickets only reaches 8 games, and is never in question whether most stadiums will have good turnouts. You would think that kids especially, with love to receive game tickets as gifts on Christmas morning Instead, all that is available are gift certificates at this point in the year.

First off, the MLB has done a great job in posting their following year schedules earlier each consecutive year over the last half-dozen or so.

I give these guys full marks for that.  It also looks like they are improving their coverage of each team, to include more splits in each of the 30 squad’s itineraries.

I still wish they would follow the NHL (god did I just say that), in providing better splits for their 2430 Games Master Schedule, to include 7 day splits (you can go to ESPN.com for those), monthly splits and finally one year-long page on a post.

In 2014, I did all of the schedules I just mentioned, and even added an Interleague Master Schedule.  In 2016, I have already put out the American League vs National League schedule here.

It has been quite the undertaking, but I am doing all facets of it again – going forward in 2016 after just putting out the Interleague Master Schedule in 2015 because I was on the road the whole year. Read the rest of this entry

What is ‘My Favorite Baseball Game’ Ever Attended?: A New Method To Historically Score As A Ballpark Fan

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

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

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 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 September (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.

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
