My name is Rachel Greenhouse and I met my husband Cole Greenhouse online. We began talking and connected over our love of sports. Cole’s been a baseball fan for much of his life, while my fandom started in high school. I am a huge Red Sox fan, while Cole is a die-hard Cardinals fan. What a great rivalry!
Neither of us have kept track of the total games we’ve attended. We go when we can and enjoy the experience along the way! Together we have visited 18 ballparks, 10 on our honeymoon. The parks are:
1) Fenway Park
2) Wrigley Field
3) Guaranteed Rate Field
4) Busch Stadium
5) Miller Park
6) PNC Park
7) Nationals Park
8) Progressive Field
9) Oakland Coliseum (July 3, 2016)
10) AT&T Park (July 4, 2016)
11) Minute Maid Park (July 6, 2016)
12) Globe Life Park (July 7, 2016)
13) Dodger Stadium (July 9, 2016)
14) Petco Park (July 11, 2016–Home Run Derby)
15) Angel Stadium (July 15, 2016)
16) Chase Field (July 16, 2016)
17) Coors Field (July 18, 2016)
18) Safeco Field (July 19, 2016)
All of the parks listed, with the exception of Busch Stadium were visited in 2016. We visited Busch Stadium for Game 3 of the 2013 World Series, Red Sox v. Cardinals. What a thrill!
Our favorite baseball memories have to be our honeymoon. For me, personally, it was the best vacation I’ve been on. Prior to going on the trip, we researched sites Ballpark Nerd and Ballpark STAMPeders for ideas and can’t miss sites that helped make our trip even better!
As I look back at our Baseball Passport and photos from our honeymoon, I am still in shock that we pulled it off. We met a lot of players, took a ton of selfies (maybe I went a bit overboard), spent time on the field for some batting practices and see history made at the Home Run Derby!
