A Day at the Park…the Ball Park that is

Jul 11, 2014 4 Comments

Baseball fans all talk about their “bucket list” of stadiums they would like to travel to for a game.  Some even do a stadium tour throughout the country.  Stadiums like Fenway, Camden Yards and AT&T Park in San Francisco(one of my favorites and I will always know it as Pac Bell Park) are on the […]

Mar 18, 2014 2 Comments

When it comes to baseball on the North Side of Chicago, the past several years have felt like one LONG, cold winter. Four consecutive years of losing seasons, including two seasons with 90 losses and one with 101 losses will do that to a city and fan base that so desperately wants to win. But […]

Apr 12, 2013 7 Comments

When the news broke that my beloved Giants had agreed to terms with their All-Star catcher Buster Posey on a landmark, eight-year $167 million contract extension, the first thing that dawned on me was the realization (and admitted relief) that Posey will most likely play out his entire professional baseball career in San Francisco.

Glutton Travels: 2013 Spring Training Recap

Mar 30, 2013 6 Comments

As expected, my annual trip to Arizona for Spring Training did not disappoint. It was an amazing weekend full of baseball, golf, food and libations, and of course, the usual shenanigans.
