Chuck Booth is back to detail his 2015 MLB Ballpark Tour where he saw 224 games in 183 days. We record the podcast with Ken Lee as well from the friendly confines of Ken’s Manfish Brewing Mancave in Renton, WA. Chuck and Ken are pictured below with Tike Narry at Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter on 8/30/2015 at Dodgers Stadium. Enjoy!
World Record holder, Chuck Booth (right), was kind enough to join me after my hiatus from the podcast. Chuck is attempting to visit an MLB stadium every day of the season in 2015. He plans to take in around 220 games in the 183 day season. We discuss his tour this year and his record breaking stretch of 23 days in 2012 visiting all 30 MLB parks in which he became the fastest to visit all 30 parks breaking his previous record of 24 days.
I’d love to see all 30 parks, but take my time doing so. Listen to how Chuck is able to do it so often and on a budget.
