My 2017 Season Recap

I know. I know. The baseball season is not over yet. We're in the middle of the World Series and I'm hoping for three more contests, as we're tied at 2 games apiece. Go Astros! Go Dodgers!  I don't really have a horse in the race so I'm rooting for good baseball!

Since I won't be attending anymore games this year, then I might as well do my recap as I have done in the past. (2016, 2015, 2014, 2013)

This was definitely a down year for me attending professional baseball games.
In total, I made it to six Chiefs games in Peoria, one Iowa Cubs game, and Game 4 of the NLCS. I suppose if I was to make it to only one MLB game, then I chose a good one for a Cubs fan.
If my records are correct, this is the first summer since I graduated from college (2000) in which I did not attend at least ten ball games. I plan to fix that next summer... Maybe I'll knock off a couple of my remaining MLB stadiums or perhaps I'll do a tour of the Midwest League?
Until then, I have a nice picture of everyone who attended the game at Wrigley with me: my wife, my sister, and a friend who shall remain anonymous.  Good times!


  1. If you really want to go off league, hit a few Frontier League games, Slammers, Thunderbolts, and Boomers all in the Chicago area.

  2. Very nice, I think overall you saw more live baseball than I did (considering how I left by the second inning at the latest usually).

  3. My goal is always ten a year as well.....although now that I have a minor league team in my backyard it is much easier.

  4. Down year? You went 6 more games than I attended this year. I was just talking to my co-worker who goes to games with me about how we dropped the ball this past season.
