Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs in Chicago, Illinois
Pat, Tommy, and the 2016 World Series Trophy
There is only one place this Perfect Storm Road Trip could end and that was at Wrigley Field. There also happened to be a not so perfect storm occurring in Chicago. This had to be the coldest game I have ever attended at Wrigley Field and most people were surprised they played the game. I usually do not attend April baseball in Chicago because you can always count on miserable weather and today was no exception. However, a cold and rain day at Wrigley Field is always a beautiful day. Continue reading
Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Just because I flew home on Saturday did not mean the trip was done. After trying to catch up on my sleep I headed up to catch the Cubs play the Brewers with JP, Kelly and Tommy. It was a little cooler in the Midwest so I was happy to see the dome closed and the heat on at Miller Field. I could not go on a baseball road trip without seeing my Cubs play. They did not disappoint as they beat the Brewers on the last day of my vacation. We always have a great time in Milwaukee where they have some great fans. Continue reading
Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres at Petco Park in San Diego, California
I did not think I would find a park that could compete with PNC Park in Pittsburgh among the new ballparks. However, Petco Park might just be the best new ballpark I have been to so far. I do not include Wrigley as a new ballpark since it hit the century mark a few years back.
Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondback in Phoenix, Arizona
After visiting family over Easter weekend in Nevada I headed to Phoenix on Monday, April 2, 2018 to see the Diamondbacks host the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodger fan were well represented at Chase Field on this Monday night. It was an early start for a game that went a lot longer than I anticipated thanks to some late inning heroics by the home team. Continue reading
San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers in Los Angeles, California
I would watch the Cubs play the Dodgers on television as a kid and kind of adopted the Dodgers as my second National League team while growing up. I always hoped (and still do) to see the Cubs play at Dodger Stadium. If I could not see the Cubs play the second best game had to be against the Dodgers greatest rival the Giants from just up the road in San Francisco on March, 30, 2018.
