Baseball Stadiums I Have Known, 2004-2012

The 2012 baseball season is almost over—the playoffs will start in a few weeks—so I thought I'd mark that with the stadiums that Em and I have been to since we decided to visit them all. So far, it's only been 9 of 30…but progress is progress, as any Padre fan knows. Anyway:

#1. Photo on the left is from the Dodger-Cardinal playoff game in Oct. 2004. Right side is a game against Miami in June 2012. About the three billionth time I'd been to Chavez Ravine.

#2. Angels played a late-season meaningless game against Detroit. About the five billionth time I'd been to the Big A.

#3. Petco Park is a great ball yard. We went to all 3 games in this series vs. Atlanta & stayed in the Gaslamp. We'd done it the previous year as well. Super fun.

#4. Giants vs. Arizona. Fantastic place to see a game. Another highlight of this day was going to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit at MOMA.

#5. A's played Texas. We were all wearing hats from other teams: Braves (Nick), BoSox (Lis), Padres (Em and I).

#6. We caught two games in a series against the White Sox. Em wore her old-school trident M's hat. Also saw the Avett Bros. & Inception.

#7. Saw the DBacks win the west against SF with Em, Stacie and Jules. The next day we saw Oregon stomp Arizona in football down in Tucson.

#8. The Nats are actually good this year. Steven Strasburg destroyed Miami. I was in town for the AEA web design conference.

#9. Orioles lost to KC in a game nearly rained out. Em and I also had a debilitating adventure on the Maryland public transit system.

We've also been to Fenway, in 2005, but it was October and the Red Sox didn't make the playoffs that year. So naturally, we gotta go back...
