The GOAL: 183 Straight Days (every single day at least 1 gm) Of ALL 30 MLB Parks Trip In 2015 (218 Games)

The CAUSE:  To Raise Money for Concussion Awareness Through Inspiring Others

I have logged 4500 miles driving,  another 1000 taking busses thus far..

There were 4 Doubleheaders completed,  1 flush cancellation in regards to Wrigley., and several weird things happening to prevent me from completing all I needed to do.

I made it just fine to the MLB Season Opener. But after that has been a collision of cluster bangs for me to sift through. Read the rest of this entry

Report on the Travel Companies of the 30 MLB Cities

Friday, May.11/2012

Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Writer and @chuckbooth3024) –After logging 65,000 miles from planes, trains, subways, Buses and other methods of transportation in one month, I am left with some thoughts about certain companies.  I don’t believe in trashing a company based on one incident or a rogue employee, so I will leave the negativity for a future travel book.  I will say that my four favorite travel companies helped me tremendously.  I am not just saying this because they helped me out on my trip, I wrote about the same four companies in my book ‘The Fastest 30 Ballgames.’  I am also happy to say that these companies had no blame for the half of dozen mishaps that caused me cancellations or delays during the streak.   The mishaps were a poorly executed plane de-boarding at IAH airport that cost a doubleheader attempt in Texas.  The second plane issue was some sort of mechanical failure that the airline gave up after 30 minutes of trying only in San Diego. The worst blunder was having the seat belt of the first officer not close properly cause an hour delay.  Other mishaps were a failure to understand car rental procedures right in Cleveland costing me an hour delay.  But that wasn’t as egregious as a hotel chain overcharging me three separate time for a hotel booking even though I cancelled way in advance.  All of these are about the average for the amount of traveling .  The four companies that stood above the rest are: Southwest Airlines, Air Tran Airways, Best Western Hotel Chain and National Car Rental.

You Must Be Careful When Buying Through PayPal or Stub Hub!

Friday March.23, 2012

Travel Blog: #10

Articles @ MLB Reports # 27

Days to GWR Attempt:15

Douglas ‘Chuck’ Booth (Baseball Writer and @chuckbooth3024 on twitter)- This wasn’t my topic that I was going to write about today but I felt it is so necessary to warn travelers on the pitfalls of PayPal and StubHub if they don’t know how to use their financial institutions properly.  First off, I am not bemoaning either of these entities.  Both offer a great service to the public.  This is just a cautionary tale.  When you have done extensive traveling such as I have you pretty much encounter everything, this is a kind of parallelism to the great game of baseball.  I have been overcharged, had entire flight itineraries be cancelled because of a simple date error.  Again I digress off topic, we can pick up on some of those on another day.

Time Management and Planning Tips for Baseball Road Trips

Friday March 9, 2012

Douglas ‘Chuck’ Booth (Baseball Writer)- You have booked your vacation time off work after scouting out the Major League Baseball Schedule this year(Usually posts Sept.15 for the next following year).  You then either have to buy plane tickets or organize Ground Transportation to move around to these cities, in a lot of cases you will need to do both.  Most people do not want to feel rushed on vacation, as chances are their real life is already like this and they are looking for a reprieve from a hectic pace.  Obviously, the better travelers would already have priced out everything from flights to: parking, food, lodging, gas, car rentals, taxi cabs, tickets, tolls, luggage, add that to electronic considerations like; roaming charges for cellphones and all forms of picture-taking like maybe additional Memory Cards.  You are left with a lot of planning and money management to tackle.  You have finagled a way to pay for your vacation, however how do you go about the process in stages?

Air Miles Can Save You a Fortune on Baseball Road Trips

Friday, February 17, 2012

Douglas ‘Chuck’ Booth (Baseball Writer)–  With my apologies to our friends of the USA right off of the bat, this blog is geared towards Canadians who are familiar with Air Miles.  You might still want to read this since you probably know someone north of the border, or could score free ticket vouchers for the ‘Rogers Center in Toronto.’  For years I have traveled on heavy discounts from collecting Air Miles@ http://www.airmiles.ca. How do you do this you ask? Read the rest of this entry

Car Rentals vs. Your Own Vehicle (For Baseball Road Trips)

Friday  February 10th, 2012

MILWAUKEE/GENERAL MITCHELL AIRPORT (MKE)

Douglas “Chuck” Booth (Baseball Writer)– Just to give everybody a bit of background here, I have rented cars for 4 years and 6 months straight.  I do courier work for a living. I have found that the unlimited mileage that car rentals give you are a lifesaver.  I am not going to bore with huge mathematical details yet.  What I will do is breakdown my knowledge for baseball road trips.  Depending on where you live is the big determining factor in where you should rent a car from.  For the Central to Midwest, this means doing any number of these parks:  Minnesota, St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago (AL), Chicago (NL). Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Detroit and Cleveland- you should arrange for your trip to start off and end in Milwaukee. Read the rest of this entry
