The Race to 30.
Baseball Stadium Competition with Rye and Clarkman.

I grew up impressed with the number of stadiums that Rye had been to, a product of going on childhood road trips with his brother & his dad.

As I've grown older & started traveling the United States, I've started approaching his number of stadiums visited!

It's so close now that I like to rib him when I'm going somewhere new, and I can typically expect an e-mail when he goes somewhere new.

Rye has the lead at the moment, but I think I have a higher degree-of-difficulty score with places like Colorado & Seattle under my belt.

Clarkman insists he's going to win.

Rye saw the old Nationals park, I saw the new Nationals park. One of us will have to see a Caps game at the Verizon Center to complete our Washington conquest. Clarkman got this one when we visited in September of 2013.

Turner Field,
Atlanta (Braves), Georgia

There have been recent discussions, but they fell apart. I love that Rye thinks 12 hours of driving is nothing (just like me). It will happen.

Tropicana Field,
Tampa Bay (Devil Rays), Florida

 

Marlins Park,
Miami (Marlins), Florida

I really wanted to see Sun Life Stadium before they left, but now, now it might be a while before I check this one out. I'd say it'll be one of the last.

Went here on my Route 66 trip, then went back a month later. I wonder what the odds of visiting Target Field twice in 1 year while living in Newfoundland were?

Went here with Clarkman & Rye. Rye was passed out while they threw out Lou Pinella! Other than seeing Juan Pierre hit a dinger for my fantasy team, this might be the best live baseball memory.

Coors Field,

Finally one for me & not for Rye! I went here with the Fondelah in 2006. There's worry in 2016 though, Clarkman might get this one and get one step closer to me!

Chase Field,
Phoenix, Arizona (Diamondbacks)

Beliciu has been here, but not Rye! Oh-ho!
