    Here in Missouri, KC and Busch stadiums. Next summer, I'll be travelling East to visit family and I am considering driving in order to see as much as possible and do as much as possible along the way. Saving as much as I can at the present time. Flying no longer seems like a good time (gee, I wonder why.... airlines maybe?)

    I'll monitor this thread all summer and maybe it will help to make some plans.

    I hope, and would like to think I will get to Dodgers Stadium, Angel Stadium & maybe a game in Phoenix.

    It's been five years since I've been to a game. I'd like to get to Jacobs Field this summer.

    Next year I plan to go to Toronto and Pittsburgh for sure. Don't know which others. I am trying to find ballparks that are easily accessible via rail or subway - my trip to Atlanta/Tampa/Miami will be on an organized tour so I can leave travel to them, but when I go alone, I'd rather not have to rent a car or take the bus.

    The Red Line can be a little dicey, too. There is a large police presence around US Cellular before and after night games. You shouldn't have any problem, but I would heed TeacherMan's advice. Don't hang around the area after a night game. Once the parking lots clear out and the cops are gone, you don't want to be there.

    Also, if you're sitting in traffic on the street outside The Cell waiting to get into the parking lot, don't fall for the old scam and give your $22 or whatever they charge these days to anybody until you are actually in the parking lot. Some of the enterprising local youths will be happy to take your parking fee while you're in the traffic jam on the street, but they are not White Sox employees, and you will be out some money.

    As for me, I'm about 250 miles from the nearest MLB parks. Fenway, Yankee Stadium and Citi Field are all about the same distance from where I am, and Toronto is about 300 miles. Realistically, I'm going to try to get to Syracuse to check out Bryce Harper and the Chiefs this spring.

    That is a good way to go especially if everyone is drinking but alot of people like to drive so they can tailgate. I gotta say those tailgate partys are pretty fun.

    Did something happen when you went to a night game? I always hear everyone say how bad it is here but I dont see it. I wouldnt go into the bars and start mouthing off but the stadium to the parking lot is safe.

    Years ago there was a guy who got beat up by some guy with a table leg but it's pretty rare to see anyone getting attacked. Guarantee you it's safer here than Wrigley Field.
