    The SnowBirds should be arriving in Arizona by now for the start of The Cactus League. Work life has taken its toll on me this year but I'd like to visit sometime.

    They been here since last year. They usually arrive late in the year and I can't wait till they go back home! They don't know how to drive, it's like having Sun City all over the city.

    I usually like to and visit a cactus league game. Sometimes tickets are pricey and some games are sold out.

    Just got my tickets to the Mud Hens home opener.
    I'm a happy camper.

    I'm going to be in New York this summer for a conference. The Mets are at home, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get away long enough to go. I think I've been to 18 parks. It's always fun to check another one off the list.

    Nice. We'll probably go to the local ball game a few times this year. The Mallards, there in a college development league. Pretty fun, nice park, nice crowds, good concessions. And maybe once to the Brewers. Not against the Cubs though. That was just too crowded and carzy.

    Until they tear it down and build anew one. Then it goes back on the list.

    I have lost:
    Yankee Stadium
    Shea Stadium
    Montreal's stadium

    All that is left is fenway and Skydome.

    When I use to live on the east coast back in the late 80's, early 90's. My family and I attended tons of baseball games. So I can say I attended some of the old classic stadiums before they tore them down and attended the ones still standing.

    Angels - Angel Stadium
    Astros - Astrodome, Minute Maid Park
    Braves - Atlanta–Fulton County Stadium
    Cubs - Wrigley Field
    Dbacks - Chase Field
    Dodgers - Dodger Stadium
    Indians - Cleveland Stadium
    Mariners - Kingdome
    Mets - Shea Stadium
    Orioles - Camden Yards
    Padres - Petco Park and Jack Murphy Stadium
    Phillies - Veterans Stadium
    Pirates - Three Rivers Stadium
    Rangers - Arlington Stadium
    Tigers - Tiger Stadium
    White Sox - Saw the old Comiskey Park, but attended the new stadium.
    Yankees - Old Yankee Stadium

    I recall we wanted to attend a Reds and Brewers game, but they were out of town.

    Then it'll count as two when I get back for a second game.
    I've been to both the new and old Tigers, Cincinnati, and Yankees. Fenway, Wrigley, and Dodgers are (I think) the last of the old school parks I've been to. Anything built after the 70's or so doesn't count as old to me.
