50 Baseball Things to do by Age 50

Years ago when I was living in South Korea I came up with a list of 40 things I want to do by age 40. Well now that I am past age 40, I got to thinking tonight of a baseball version of 50 by 50. So here are 50 things/places I want to go before I turn 50.

I have broken them down into different groups in order to put better meaning to it. For instance, I grouped all of the college teams I want to see together. However, for the MLB I simply want to see 10 new stadiums and I chose the ones that I think are most likely to be the next 10.

By listing a team I want to see, I mean I want to go to their home stadium to see them. These are in no particular order.

So here it goes:

College Teams I want to see:

  1. Texas Tech
  2. Rice
  3. Houston
  4. Texas State
  5. Dallas Baptist
  6. Sam Houston
  7. UTSA
  8. Baylor
  9. TCU
  10. Temple College – an alma mater of mine (juco)

Major League Stadiums:

  1. New York Yankees
  2. Kansas City Royals
  3. Atlanta Braves
  4. Miami Marlins
  5. Pittsburgh Pirates
  6. Cincinnati Reds
  7. Milwaukee Brewers
  8. Minnesota Twins
  9. Baltimore Orioles
  10. Philadelphia Phillies

Foreign countries I want to watch a game in:

  1. Germany
  2. Poland
  3. Czech Republic
  4. Austria
  5. Italy
  6. Belgium
  7. Netherlands
  8. France
  9. Switzerland
  10. Puerto Rico – ok this one is a more of a territory

Random tournaments, museums, or special games:

  1. AA All-Star Game
  2. AAA All-Star Game
  3. A All-Star Game
  4. Prague Baseball Week
  5. Haarlem Honkbal Week
  6. World Port Tournament
  7. Minnesota Townball game
  8. WBC Game
  9. Spring Training
  10. Field of Dreams
  11. Negro Leagues Hall of Fame
  12. Texas State High School Championships
  13. European Championship Qualifier/B-Pool
  14. European Champions Cup
  15. Federations Cup

Minor League Teams:

  1. Corpus Christi Hooks
  2. Midland Rockhounds
  3. El Paso Chihuahuas
  4. Amarillo – moving to town in 2019
  5. Oklahoma City Dodgers

So there is my list of 50 things I want to do by age 50. I think I can clear at least 9 of them this year. It may be a stretch to get to all of them in the next almost a decade. It is doable however. Especially since I have most of the summer off.

What are some places you’d like to see that deal with baseball?
