It’s a battle of the ballparks! In one corner, Nationals Park. A perfectly average ballpark in every way. In the other corner, Camden Yards, a top 5 ballpark no-doubter!
From Dodgertown “BFE” to taking on The Big Unit in Arizona! Another ‘Stadium Series’ entry!
A quick trip that was scheduled for Petco Park and Chase Field evolved into a trip for Metallica’s “Big 4” with some baseball as the cherry on top!

Watching ball, Shoeless Joe, and the Georgia Peach. A quick trip to Fluor Field, Turner Field, and the few stops between!
After “Beaver Lick”, “Big Bone Lick”, and “Sugartit”, I joked that the next town up was sure to be “Big Dick Lick”, but it ends up it was just Florence.
Sinatra, Baby Booing, and Erin Andrews – The Yankee Stadium/Shea Stadium Experience!
