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.

Among the games were a doubleheader I witnessed in Detroit on Monday Sept.21/2015.  Even more significant is that I was originally scheduled for Nats Park that night for the 1st 5 months of my journey, only changing it in early Sept. Read the rest of this entry

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.
