My MLB tour and roadtrip to Maine

Step 1 : Why? Combing two bucket lists into one: visit every state in the U.S. and visit every MLB stadium. Crossed off  6 states in New England which now puts me at 48 of the 50 (New Mexico & Alaska). Step 2 : When? Based on a dozen different MLB schedules in late July , I wound up attending 8 games at 8 ballparks. The Phillies gifted me a surprise double-header - ended by a walk-off Grand Slam - and I attended the Fenway tour, but unfortunately no game.  Step 3 : Where? Starting from Circle City - also visiting Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont , Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. Step 4 : How? Using Hotels.com, HipCamp, Google Maps, Trip Advisor and the Ballpark app. I drove, camped, disc'd, fished, cheered & jeered, went sight-seeing & wondering & touring & exploring, slept in the car & hotel & tent & friend's house, and had gobs of seafood & ice
