What were you doing during Derek Jeter’s final at bat yesterday? I was sitting on my aunt and uncle’s couch taking pictures of the TV as I watched him go out on top- with a hit and RBI. Couldn’t be more perfect to see him play his final game in Fenway, a rivalry I’ve enjoyed with a fan base I respect. It was fitting to see him go out in the gray uniform too, as I grew up watching him when the Yanks came to Cleveland. Didn’t see him in the iconic pinstripes until a family trip in the mid 2000s.

I show you how to be a ballpark hottie for $15 or less!
During the Kiss Cam at Dodgers Stadium on Tuesday, a split couple poured beers on one another and it flew around social media. Who didn’t enjoy that and wonder if that girl reads my blog for t-shirt ideas? Well maybe that’s a stretch, but here’s how you can make her scoreboard worthy shirt!

I was searching Pinterest for budget travel advice and came across the post How to Save Money on Travel- 52 Ideas by Ytravel Blog and thought I would share it.
Some of the travel advice is more geared toward international travel, which might come in handy if you’re pursuing ballparks outside the US (something I hinted I’d like to start doing a few weeks ago!). I went through the list and picked out what I thought was the most relevant advice for domestic baseball travel and added my comments on some things in parentheses. If you’d like to see the full list, click the link above. Continue reading
What a rough sports news week with all the terrible social issue stories coming out of the NFL. I liked what James Brown said during last Thursday’s CBS Broadcast (video above) and encourage people to do more than complain about the NFL on social media, but help those affected and change the way we view women. Look up shelters and donate items or your time if you’re able. I know I have spent much of my week reflecting on this issue- where I stand and how I can make changes in my community and hope you have too.
I’ll get off my small soap box with that and change over to baseball, as I generally like to keep this blog light and fun! Play-offs are around the corner!! Have you entered your team’s postseason lottery yet? If not you definitely want to get on that, so you can pay face value for tickets. Visit your team’s website to enter in or if you’re a Cardinals fan, put down a deposit on 2015 season tickets to receive postseason tickets for this year! Continue reading
This week’s shirt is for the Tampa Bay Rays. May it inspire them to get a new ballpark so ladies wearing cute shirts like this can get some sun and attract more fans to games! If good baseball play doesn’t get fans, I can only assume sunshine and pretty girls are the answer! I’m kidding, but whatever it takes to get rid of Tropicana (#doyourpart). The design for this t-shirt is #4 Irma from the book, 99 Ways to Cut, Sew, Trim, and Tie Your T-Shirt into Something Special.

This past weekend I was in New York City for Derek Jeter Day. It was my last ballpark of the season (ended with 7, 3 short of my goal), and my final time seeing my favorite athlete OF ALL TIME play in person. Continue reading
Headed to NYC to see Derek Jeter play for the Yankees one. more. time. Trying to let that sink in, but it doesn’t seem possible! All the years and years of going to games and cheering him on ends today. Watching Jeter this season, I know it’s time to for him to retire, but it’s still going to be an emotional day (maybe some tears!). I feel very lucky that I will get to see his retirement speech in person and the game– sure he won’t disappoint with either! Continue reading

I took a small hiatus from blogging the last week to go on vacation to celebrate my friend’s 30th birthday in Puerto Rico. It was the first non-baseball trip I’ve taken since starting this blog in 2012… well so I thought when I booked my flight.
Funny thing about that– baseball still found me. Continue reading
