30 parks, 27 days

A group of five men are attempting to see a game in all 30 major leagues parks in just 27 days starting on June 16 with a Marlins-Mariners game at Safeco Field. They are hoping to raise money for the Jim Thorpe Little League in Hawthorne, CA.

They have three four days they plan to double up: June 21 (Dodgers in the afternoon, Padres at night), July 9 (Yankees by night day, Mets by night), July 10 (Phillies by day, Nationals by night), and July 11 (Cubs by day, Brewers by night)

The overnight trip they will have to take after the Padres game on June 21 to get to Denver for a day game at Coors Field will be tough, as the men are going to be driving the whole way. There is also a Kansas City-Detroit trip. And a Washington-Chicago trip.

The last park will be Milwaukee on July 11. And then they plan to stay in Milwaukee for two games.

July 9 (Yankees by night, Mets by night)

Are they planning on creating a rift in the space-time continuum?

It once took me eight hours to get from County Stadium to Midway airport on the south side. Should have been m a y b e two hours. Good Luck.

Is there a train they could take from Chicago to Milwaukee?

5 guys sharing the driving should be no problem. I'd be more worried about showers. Didn't read the article to find out what kind of car/rv they are taking. Hope it's a reliable one and that they have a lot of gas money. vr, Xei

Given the miles covered, a 5-man rotation shouldn't be a problem. I've done NYC to New Orleans in a conversion van with 3 other guys, and that went well.

Should be a smooth ride, made even smoother with GPS.

3 I'm not sure, but I believe there is a state of Illinois statute the requires all Amtrak trains operating within the state to be at least 90 min late to every least the service operates as if such a law exists.

I really wish I had taken my 18-day, six park trip last year. Sigh.

4 The gas alone will cost at least $3,500. Rough estimates: 13,000 miles / 15 mpg / $4.00 gas.

Google directions of the proposed trip (broken up into two parts):

I've wanted to do a trip like that, but more leisurely, the problem is logistics. Getting the home games to work out right is not easy.
