Spring means Baseball!

Ok members, I wanted to start a new topic since the MLB season is now underway. No bashing or crude language, but if youíre an MLB fan, whoís your favorite teams? Which stadiums have you watched a game at, and what stadiums have you driven past?

Driven past Cards, Royals. Been to Colorado Rockies when Nat's were in town. Fun times. Favorite team has been and will always be Chicago Cubs. Thanks to WGN. If it weren't for them, probably the Rockies. I love baseball. The season goes too fast for me.

I hear ya! Baseball season goes way too fast for me as well. When I went to Wrigley field, the fans were great and very hospitable, we had a great time!

No crude language? (Twist hat backwards, get in yo face, and kick dirt, kick dirt, kick dirt.)

I've seen games at Oakland Coliseum, Candlestick, Fenway, Riverfront, Kaufman, Astrodome (got a foul ball), Minute Maid, Arlington Stadium (got a foul ball), and Globe Life Park (saw Kenny Rogers' perfect game). Saw a spring training game in Dunedin,FL (Mets v Montreal -- got a ball fouled by Darrel Strawberry but gave it to the kid in front of me. After all, it did bounce off him. But still, Strawberry! Damn.).
Drove past Veterans in Philadephia ( UUUUUUGLY! Sorry Phillies, but I hear you have a nice one now, so congrats!)

Favorite AL team is the home town Texas Rangers.
Favorite NL team is the champeens of the whole world -- Houston Astros! Yeah, yeah, I know. But I don't accept it.

Strange but true: I've got 3 foul balls in all these years and all three times there was a Canadian team playing. Montreal in the dome and in Dunedin, FL and Toronto at Arlington Stadium.

Time flies like an arrow.
Fruit flies like a banana.

I got to agree with you les, the Astros really looked good last year and looking good this year. Even though they beat my Dodgers in the WS, they were clicking like a well oiled machine. I love Altuve, classic dynamite coming in small packages and his enthusiasm is infectious.

graybeard, thatís impressive getting three foul balls at three different parks. When Strawberry was traded to the Dodgers, his brother cringed as his brother is a well respected LAPD officer.

Being from Canada it's Blue Jays all the way except for my daughter who's a Red Sox fan. Jays are doing ok so far but I don't expect them to go all the way for a long time to come. Been to Citizens Bank park to see the Phillies play and plan on going to Boston this year if I can work it into my schedule. Have been to spring training in Fort Myers Florida the last two years and watched the Twins and Red Sox take on a number of teams. Have driven past the Pirates stadium in Pittsburg but nothing else. I just love being on my motorcycle so I don't make it out to many games anymore.

Love my Astros! I have been a season ticket holder for 8 years. In the time when nobody wanted to see Astros I was there. Stadium empty but Astros giving it all they could. 100 + loss season I was there. I have loved them since a kid and ALWAYS rooted for them. Bad, good, or great. GO ASTROS! Les let's meet up for a game
