    I'm here, too! My "home teams" are the Padres and Brewers. I also like the Braves, as my earliest baseball memories are Milwaukee Braves games with my mom and grandpa and seeing a young Hank Aaron.
    Also nuts about classic baseball movies.

    This will be my second year in a row to watch a legend end his career. Mariano and Derek, two who played the game with exceptional talent and character and as representatives of what the game should be. With these last two retired, it's truly the end of an era for me.

    Another year for me to watch and wait for that moment when the Mets lose all hope...sigh.

    Will it be before or after the All-Star break? That's usually the question for me.

    We will be visiting the following ballparks this year, as part of my husband's lifetime dream to visit all the major league parks:

    Milwaukee
    Minneapolis
    Kansas City
    St. Louis
    Cincinnati
    Baltimore
    Washington
    Philadelphia

    If any of you live near any of those cities and are interested in getting together for coffee, please feel free to PM me to see if we can work something out. I solemnly promise that neither I nor my husband are serial killers, and we have fairly good table manners.

    I've run a background check and have been assured that no one with the name AZ is on the FBI list of serial killers.

    Drat! I'm in San Diego, but I'm originally from Milwaukee. Learned all about baseball at the Milwaukee Braves games (with a young Hank Aaron) with my grandpa and mom. Became a fangirlie with the Milwaukee Brewers especially during the Robin Yount years. Have a soft spot in my heart for the Padres.
    You will LOVE Miller Park the fans and atmosphere are so much fun.
    Hint: find someone with whom to place a "beer bet" on the Sausage Race. It makes it all that more exciting.

    We've already done the San Diego park (lovely!), but we do come over there once in a while to escape the summer heat. Yes, we're "Zonies."

    Problem with the "beer bet" is that we don't drink beer - and with our luck, we'd win! LOL.

    That's okay. A beer bet can be for root beer, iced tea, etc. It's just the spirit of betting on the sausage races that makes it fun.
