I watched my first live baseball game at Fenway during the summer of 2000 and I was hooked. Coming from India following a cricket team with a reputation for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, the cursed Boston Red Sox were such a natural fit. I fell in love with the game and the stories and character reflected in every stadium. From 2000 onwards, I started visiting major league parks ending my journey in Houston in 2012 after visiting the home parks of all 31 teams (including Montreal). One of the best trips was a big looping road trip around the midwest beginning and ending in Detroit and hitting eight or nine parks along the way and staying at a lot of Marriotts! Now I need to go back to all the teams that have opened new stadii after I visited their home fields .
