Baseball Bucket List

If you’ve been living in a closet the past day or have been too busy following Jets training camp, Felix Hernandez solidified himself in baseball history as the first Mariner to throw a perfect game. I saw him in his last start against the Yankees and it’s quite the understatement to say he throws well. Big congratulations to him!

That brings me to this non-budget topic- what’s on your baseball bucket list? Last week I checked off a couple- seeing Josh Hamilton hit a home run live and I saw an in-the-park home run by Austin Jackson. They were both in the same game and made for an unforgettable evening. Also in case you’re new to my blog, I’m traveling to all 30 MLB parks this summer, another check-off the list.

Still on my list? You guessed it, seeing a perfect game (even a no-hitter would be nice)! I’d prefer it to be a Yankee, but with these kinds of feats, I’ll take it from anyone! Also on my list- to see Derek Jeter play live in the playoffs (need to get on this soon, he’s getting old!), see the Yankees in the World Series, sit behind home plate at a game, swim in the pool at Chase Field, sit on the Green Monster, see the Yankees beat Boston in Fenway (hopefully will get this on my birthday, 9/11), see the Cubs win the World Series (curses are made to be broken!), see a bench clearing brawl live, and I’d like to be present during something extremely historical to the game- like a first in the sport or a new record being set.

Well, I’ve shared some of mine, hope you’re not rolling your eyes too much from all my Yankee love :). What are some things on your baseball bucket list? Or do you have a great baseball moment you’d like to share… feel free! I look forward to reading them!!

    5. A 4HR or 10RBI game
    6. A manager go nuts after getting ejected, Lou Piniella style



  2. When you are in Boston for your birthday, try to go to breakfast at the Paramount in Beacon Hill, promise you will love it! Caramel Banana French Toast! (okay, not baseball, I know, but my bucket list is all food-related).


  3. Working on my baseball bucket list too, though won’t get to all the parks this year =)! I did get to see Harper make an amazing flying squirrel catch, Orioles rookie Manny Machado make his first major league start & get his first 2 hits, Josh Hamilton hit a home run, my childhood team (Royals) win, visited Cooperstown, and almost catch a ball from Adrian Beltre (yea that one still gets to me). Cool to see someone else doing ballpark tours this summer!


    1. Those all sound like awesome baseball experiences!! I haven’t visited Cooperstown yet, will have to save that for next year. I was looking at your blog… awesome! Its neat to connect with other baseball fans, esp other girlies!


  4. Working on seeing all the ballparks- by the end of this season I’ll be at 19. The benches clearing brawls are awesome. I saw Nick Swisher, when he was still with the A’s, charge the mound after Padilla drilled him. Almost saw a perfect game, the A’s got a hit in the 9th inning to break it up, and almost saw a perfect game- one day it will happen!


  5. […] Things aren’t that dire just yet- ask me again when it’s just basketball. With the Arizona Fall League and Japan All-Star Series, the start of free agency, and the Baseball Winter Meetings next week there’s still plenty of baseball news for me to consume. The Japan All-Star Series in particular had me itching to see baseball overseas, something I started to think about when vacationing in Puerto Rico. Fairly certain I will be adding international ballpark chasing  to my Baseball Bucket List! […]
