On the road again. Well, at the airport again, but you know what I mean. As we checked in to our flight early on Tuesday morning, the kiosk informed us that the flight was overbooked and to see the gate attendant if we were interested in volunteering to give up our seat.
Now normally, that sort of thing wouldn’t be of interest to us, but today was our travel day anyways. We did have $20 bleacher seats at Wrigley for the 7 pm game, but we also had tickets to a second game later in the week so if the offer was enticing enough and we could get to Chicago at a semi reasonable hour, we could be persuaded. When Brent first inquired about giving up our seats, the offer from Delta was a $400 voucher and they could get us into Chicago by 11:30 pm.

It’s that time of year when Gregg and Brent hit the road to catch the boys of summer on fields all across the country. This summer, the “BaseballOnTheRoad” boys will be heading to the grand jewel of the Northwest, the Emerald City herself, the place where the sun literally does not shine: Seattle, Washington! Our trip will begin on Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 5:30 AM, and will conclude on Monday, July 15, 2013 at 1:01 PM. Nothing but good times, ballpark food, baseball action, and Seattle in all its glory will be found in between!
Brent here. So maybe you’re reading this blog and thinking, “what a crazy undertaking to try and see all 30 MLB stadiums…where does one begin with such an idea?” Good question. I guess it starts with your wife taking a crazy, fun girls’ trip without you, and you realizing you need to do something to get even, I mean, to get excited about yourself.
That’s Gregg on the left and Brent on the right. We’re both fans of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but even bigger fans of baseball. It’s our mutual goal to visit every single MLB stadium all across this great land. As baseball fans, we’ve both experienced countless games at the park, but not at very many different stadiums. That’s all about to change.
