I was planning to go to Chase Field for my birthday in 2020. COVID-19 had other plans. In 2021, I would not be defeated! Dennis, Sandy, Sarah, and I went Sept 24th to see the Dodgers defeat the Snakes 4-2 and then Dennis, Sarah, and I went back to see Kershaw pitch on the 25th. That didn’t go well for LA…Diamondback won 7-2.
They didn’t have a stadium t-shirt so I settled for a magnet.
Home of the Colorado Rockies

Me at Dodger Stadium on June 3, 2006. Mom is taking this picture too. We were on vacation and hit Dodger Stadium and drove up the coast to San Francisco and caught a Giants game (see below). Dodgers won 8-2 over the Phillies.
Dennis and I during my 2nd trip to Dodger Stadium June 29, 2009 (the West Coast Swing of the Midwest Dodger Tour) while in Anaheim for the Barbershop Harmony International Competition. Gotta love the Think Blue sign in the background. Game went 13 innings, Dodgers beat Rockies 4-2 on an Andre Ethier walk-off HR.
This is the t-shirt I bought while at Dodger Stadium for the 1st time.

Dennis and I at Petco Park July 3, 2009, this was part of our West Coast swing of the Midwest Dodger Tour of 2009. We were in Anaheim for the Barbershop Harmony Society International Competition and the Padres were playing the Dodgers so we couldn’t resist a road trip and a new ballpark for me. Dodgers won 6-3!
This is the shirt I picked up while at Petco.

This is me (and Lou Seal) at (then) AT&T Park June 6, 2006. Mom is taking this picture too. This was the 2nd destination of our California trip. It was MUCH warmer in Los Angeles…brrrr June and I was wearing a hoodie under my windshirt and drinking hot chocolate in California in JUNE?!? Giants beat the Marlins 2-1.
My shirt, notice it says SBC Park across the top… the park had been renamed just before the start of that season.
