I met Jeff Fiesta before the 2017 MLB season when he announced in the Ballpark Stampeders Facebook group that he would be traveling to all 30 MLB ballparks throughout the upcoming season. Jeff had planned several trips throughout the year and was in search of tips to get the most out of each ballpark experience. Jeff also reached out to all 30 MLB teams to share his goal and received some very positive feedback. Jeff’s travels were tracked on Twitter @30MLBParks2017 and Instagram @PinoyMeetsWorld. Thanks Jeff for sharing your amazing year on Ballpark Nerd!
