If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!After all the baseball excitement and games in 2009, 2010 was a bit of a let-down you might say. But, we sort of had bigger fish to fry this year. In early April, we brought home the latest player to [...]

Wrapping up 2009

by Nicole January 21, 2011 Baseball Games

Uh, oops. I guess this blog sort of neglected to participate in the last couple of baseball seasons. Since we just bought our 2011 Spring Training Tickets, I figured I better do a quick recap of the last couple of years. This year, maybe we’ll be a little more up-to-date on this ol’ blog. Since [...]

How a Girly Girl Became a Baseball Fan

by Nicole March 17, 2010 baseball culture

I always like to tell people, “I married into a love for baseball.” My parents and brother give me crap because as a child I was your average luke-warm-fan-of-the-home-team {Padres} but when I married, I married into a love of the game, and a love of the Dodgers. I always liked baseball. My brother and [...]

Dodgers vs. Angels

by Nicole March 2, 2010 Baseball Games

Here are some photos from a game we went to last year on June 20th, 2009. We love going to Angel Stadium (Gigi and I particularly like the Rally Monkey), especially when we get to see the Dodgers play there. The “Freeway Series” is always a fun rivalry. Angel Stadium will always be special to [...]

She’s Learning Her Colors

by Nicole November 9, 2009 Baseball Games

Yesterday my dad took Chiquita to the grocery store. Apparently, he asked her which “car cart” she wanted to drive/ride in. Her choices were red and blue. Now, let me point out that this is the girl that almost always responds with a confident “yellow!” when asked what color something is, regardless of what it [...]

The Culture of Baseball

by Nicole August 20, 2009 baseball culture

One of the things I love about the sport of baseball is the culture that goes along with it. The love of the game goes beyond the nine innings and the twenty-five man roster. It stretches towards books, movies, songs, and more. It is a culture that inspires road trips and pilgrimages and international camaraderie. [...]

Itinerary Change- Sick Toddler Alert!

by Nicole June 7, 2009 Baseball Road Trippin'

So, unfortunately we had to cancel our game in St. Louis due to Chiquita’s virus. She was feeling much better after a day of rest in Chicago (see photo above), but we didn’t want to put her through a slightly grueling day of driving to St. Louis, watching a game, and then driving to our [...]

by Nicole June 1, 2009 Ballpark Reviews

Yesterday morning we walked around Lincoln Square, the neighborhood where we are staying, had lunch at the tasty Bad Dog Tavern, and even got a little taste of Chicago’s Mayfest as well (thanks random guy for giving us a few free food tickets!). Chiquita took a good nap and then we headed out to Wrigley [...]

Baseball Road Trip: Game 1 in Milwaukee

by Nicole June 1, 2009 Ballpark Reviews

We’ve officially begun our road trip! Thursday night we flew in to Indianapolis, then drove to stay the night with family about 45 minutes away. Chiquita got to play with her cousins the next morning and then we headed out on the road up to Milwaukee! The Brewers game was great. We really liked the [...]

We’re leaving our home today for the trip of a lifetime!! Today we head out on what may be a totally crazy idea trip: a three-week long road trip around the Midwest and the East Coast to see 14 MLB games, all with a 2-year old in tow. Along the way we’ll get to see [...]
