Weekend = Baseball

Stats Last Updated:  May 7, 2009

Well, its the weekend.  So, its time for some baseball.  I’m not talking week-day watch-the-mariners-religiously-on-tv baseball, i’m talking live-in-person baseball.  Unfortunately, once again, its not the Mariners on tap for me and the boy this weekend.  Instead, its the Padres vs. Phils at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday.  We have standing room tickets and plan to explore the entire park, and eat some ice cream in Phils helmets.  It should be good.

Preparing for our second game of the season (and second stadium of the season), I thought i’d do a little tallying of Tim’s baseball stats thus far.  Here we go:

Games By Stadium (this season):

  1. Safeco Field – 9 (5) 
  2. Citizens Bank Park -8 (1)
  3. Camden Yards – 4 (1)
  4. PNC Park – 2
  5. Great American Ball Park – 1
  6. Shea Stadium – 1
  7. Progressive Field – 1
  8. Chase Field – 1
  9. (Old) Yankee Stadium – 1
  10. Citi Field – 1 (1)

We currently have tickets for games at Fenway Park (2), Citizens Bank (1), Camden Yards (1), HHH Metrodome (1), Wrigley Field (1), U.S. Cellular  Field (1), Miller Park (1), and Nationals Park (1).  Tomorrow, I will buy tickets to 2 more games at Citizens Bank Park.  I have airplane tickets to Seattle, where I will buy tickets to 5 games at Safeco Field, and we will be back in Seattle for 2-3 games during the final week of the season.  So, Safeco Field will be moving to No. 1 on this list shortly, where it belongs.  (And, in defense of the current rankings, I note that we live 65 miles from Citizens Bank Park and roughly 2,800 miles from Safeco Field).

 Games by Team (this season):

  1. Seattle Mariners – 12 (5)
  2. IMG_8010.jpgPhiladelphia Phillies – 9 (1)
  3. Baltimore Orioles - 4 (1)
  4. New York Mets – 4 (1)
  5. Oakland Athletics - 3 (3)
  6. Cincinnati Reds – 3
  7. Texas Rangers – 2 (2)
  8. Minnesota Twins – 2
  9. Cleveland Indians – 2
  10. Pittsburgh Pirates – 2
  11. St. Louis Cardinals – 2
  12. Chicago Cubs – 1
  13. Chicago White Sox – 1
  14. Anaheim Angels of Anaheim - 1
  15. Tampa Bay Rays – 1 (1)
  16. gotball.jpgToronto Blue Jays – 1
  17. San Francisco Giants – 1
  18. Arizona Diamondbacks – 1
  19. Florida Marlins – 1
  20. Colorado Rockies – 1
  21. Washington Nationals – 2 (1)
  22. New York Yankees - 1
  23. San Diego Padres – 1 (1)

Tim has also seen the Brewers, Giants, Rockies and Blue Jays in Spring Training games, but I don’t count them.

We currently have tickets to see the Phils and Padres tomorrow, the Mariners (3), Red Sox (2), Yankees (1), Mets (1), Nationals (2), Pirates (1), Cubs (1), Astros (1), Orioles (1), Tigers (1), Brewers (1), Royals (1), White Sox (1), Twins (1), and Indians (1).  Tomorrow, I will buy tickets to see the Phils play the Dodgers (1) and Braves (1).  And, as mentioned, in May we will see 5 games in Seattle between the Mariners and Athletics (3) and Rangers (2).  So, like Safeco Field, the Mariners will be moving to No. 1 on this list shortly, where they belong.

I will update this entry as we check off new teams and new stadiums.  Stay tuned.

PS – While writing this blog, the Indians scored 14 runs against the Yankees in the second inning.  HAHAHA…Excellent!

PPS – Here is a shot of the first pitch of Tim’s first MLB game.  It is Gil Meche delivering a strike to Frank Catalanotto (Blue Jays) on September 12, 2006:
