Tim came up with a clever idea when he was traveling with his family back in 2009. He decided that when someone goes to another country they get their passport stamped/validated to show they were physically there. With that being said, he decided to come up with something similar when someone goes to see a live major league baseball game. As a result, he came up with an idea that can bridge the gap from generation to generation. He designed a compact book that's made out of leather & looks like a photo album from back in the day. On the inside, there's a loose leaf binder which opens up so you can take the pages in & out easily. You can also add new pages as new ballparks go up down the road.

It's an old school way of relating to people of all ages. In this day and age, we're all consumed by technology day in, day out. In order to appreciate this great idea, I strongly suggest if you're a baseball fan that you get yourself a ballpark passport book. They're available online for your convenience. Trust me you'll be glad you did. I was skeptical at first too.

I hope other people will follow my lead and start documenting their future baseball games.
As a seasoned veteran of sports travel, I know it's hard to start over for those who've been to all the ballparks already. Life goes on so why not do the same. Get a book and see how much you can fill in. You can always pass it on to someone else to finish it for you.
Thank you for reading and following along.
