Ballparks are full of history. They each have thier own distinct features, The bricks and ivy in Wrigley, monument park and the mystique of Yankee stadium, the warehouse at Camden, the green monster at Fenway, and more, but when you go to a park its more than to see the game, its to take in the environment. As much as I dislike it, part of going to Turner is listening to the fans do that tommohawk chant. I also enjoy seeing the statues or plaques of players who have contributed to all that history.Each ballpark also gives you a different perspective of the game. What might be a HR at one park is just a fly ball in another. The site lines, angles and views of a game vary from park to park, even if your sitting in the same general area. Also the in game extras , like the mascot races, or singing the stretch at Wrigley, Sweet Caroline at Fenway, or the 7th inning God Bless America at Yankee stadium.

Anyway, I am leaving in 15 days for Cali and the 5 parks out there. Its all booked and ready to go. I am really pumped. Not just for the baseball, but a week with my son, Chris, as well. We will be sitting right under the "glove" at AT&T, which is kind of cool. in my opinion.
I will be going to a Cubs/Braves game the first week of July, and I will NOT miss that. Even as bad as the Cubs are, I have to see them at least once.

The Cubs are playing a bit better, they took 2 of 3 vs. the Dodgers and Braves,but have lost the first 2 vs. the Brew Crew. Hopefully we can pull out game 3. Either way, I still don't have high expectations this year. I will hopefully be going to the May 26 Braves game vs. the Nats. Hopefully Strasburg will pitch, if not at least Bryce Harper should be playing.
