Chicago, Saturday May 3rd 2003

Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Saturday June 10th 2006

Finally, the sun made an appearance in Southern California, as the low clouds and fog receded just offshore. Following a morning of exploring San Diego, I traveled up Interstate 5 to Anaheim to catch an evening game between the Seattle Mariners and Anaheim Angels at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Seattle, Sunday September 30th, 2007

Getting a late start after returning from Vancouver in the early morning hours, we were greeted by thick clouds and a chilly rain.

Since conditions were not conducive for exploring Seattle further,Continue reading “Seattle, Sunday September 30th, 2007”

Game time was 1210 pm, leaving little time to do much before arriving at the park as the gates opened. We got a goodContinue reading “Minneapolis, Minnesota – Thursday September 22nd, 2011”

Minneapolis, Minnesota – Wednesday, September 21st 2011

Our second MLB trip of the 2011 season took us to Minneapolis to see the Twins at Target Field.

Circumstances dictated the timing of our visit, and weContinue reading “Minneapolis, Minnesota – Wednesday, September 21st 2011”
