A Visit to the Temple of Doom

Last night, Bryan Chapell and I went to a Cubs game; it was my first visit to Wrigley Field (aka "the temple of doom"). We left before the beginning of the 9th inning; it looks like we missed the main part of the ball game.

For those keeping track of my life goal, I continue to add ball parks to my list. Here is the update (new ball parks in blue):

American League
Yankee Stadium (NY Yankees)
Tropicana Field (Tampa Bay D-Rays)
Camden Yards (Baltimore Orioles)
Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)
US Celluar Field (Chi White Sox)
The Ballpark at Arlington (Texas Rangers)

National League
Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies)
Turner Field (Atlanta Braves)
Busch Stadium (STL Cardinals)
Great American Ball Park (Cincinnati Reds)
Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs)
PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates)
Dodger Stadium (LA Dodgers)
Petco Park (San Diego Padres)

By my count, that is 14 out of 30 current ball parks; of course, Yankee Stadium will go off the list next year (since the new Yankee Stadium will be online then). Still, perseverance is the key! The ball park that I most want to go to now is AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Just FYI, Sean...Ameriquest Field has reverted back to its original and classier name, The Ballpark in Arlington.

Also, getting ready to do another round of officer training and am using your book, "On Being Presbyterian". Can't tell you what a gift that book is to His Church. Thank you!

See you at GA?

Sorry for the bad link

Hi, Kyle: thanks for the heads-up. Hope all is well in Ft. Worth. Yes, I hope that we'll run into each other at GA; I'll be going to the WTS dinner too. sml

Dr. Lucas,

You'll need to let me know when you plan to see the Rogers Centre (more appropriately known as SkyDome) in Toronto. The Blue Jays, after all, are my beloved team.
