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!

1st Inning – When did you become a baseball fan?
I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember. My grandparents would often take care of me when I was a child, and my grandmother was (and still is) a huge Yankees fan. She passed down a lot of her memorabilia, cards, and whatnot. I definitely learned a love of the game from her. [Read more…]
