Every summer, my family and I drive to different states and go to baseball stadiums. Even though I am a huge Mets fan, I love visiting other ballparks. I've been to Progressive Field (Cleveland Indians), Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers), and Camden Yards (Baltimore Orioles).

In the spring I went to PNC Park, the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

It's cool to travel to ballparks away from home to see new, cool, incredible things. For example, at Camden Yards above the top row there is a sidewalk where they put a plaque where they hit a home run. Ken Griffey Jr. even hit one on the roof.

This ballpark is my favorite, not just for baseball, but because I have relatives in Maryland.

At Comerica, they have a Tiger merry-go-round and a Ferris wheel with baseball cars.

Last but not least, Progressive Field has video games, a hitting cage, pitching machines and stolen-base racing. These are some really fun trips.
