This blog is one man’s journey around the world to watch baseball. I am a baseball fanatic who grew up playing and watching as much baseball as I could. I am currently an ESL teacher in South Korea with plans to continue teaching overseas for the foreseeable future. I plan to see as many stadiums as I can as I travel around the world teaching English.
I grew up in Central Texas, and I am a huge Texas Rangers fan. However, I am a die-hard Atlanta Braves fan. Growing up I could see more Braves games on TBS than Rangers and Astros combined. I have followed the Braves since the mid to late 80’s, and like most other Braves fans my age, my favorite player has always been Dale Murphy.
I have been published in the 2011 SK Wyverns (of the KBO) Fan Book (their version of the team program), and I write reviews of Korean Baseball sites for the website StadiumJourney.com. I also run BaseballdeWorld.com which covers baseball around the world and BravesBaseballWorld.com.
I have plans to see all 30 MLB stadiums at one point (I have seen 8 so far although only 6 of those are still in use) along with as many stadiums in other countries as possible.
I have come up with 40 things to do by age 40 (I have
7 5 4 years to go), and many of those things are baseball related. Here are the 10 items on my 40 by 40 that are baseball related.
1. See a World Baseball Classic game
2. See a World Series game
3. See 10 new MLB stadiums
4. Play a baseball game in a foreign country
5. See a baseball game in 5 foreign countries
6. Go to the European Baseball Championships
7. Throw out the 1st pitch at a baseball game
8. Go to the College World Series
9. Coach a baseball team in a foreign country for a game
10. Go to MLB spring training
