Doubleheader Master Schedule For MLB Parks In 2016 By Ground

Wrigley Field is perfect to double up with games at Miller Park all year. The classic move is the Friday 1:20 game, then head up to Miller Park by ground. You can even catch an Amtrak Train from Union Station that leaves at 5:09 weekdays, and arrives in downtown Milwaukee at 6;35. You avoid the horrible traffic that way.

As an expert in Major League Doubleheaders (I attended 47 of them in 2015, including one Triple Header, and have gone to 75 overall in the last 7 years), I have to say there is fewer opportunities to see 2 games in one day this year than last years schedule.

In 2015 alone, I started off seeing 37 games in April despite their only being 25 days of game action – as part of my 224 total games seen live.

Some of the previous years I really went all out with crazy flight doubleheader scenarios.. These are not really pragmatic unless you are chasing a world record.

Most of the criteria is to be able to see most (if not all) of both games of the twin bill.

There are 2 New York Doubleheaders on June 30th and Aug 27, and 1 all Chicago Doubleheader move on Sept 15, 2016.

Oakland and San Francisco represent the 3rd closest home parks to the New York and Chicago Parks.  There are 2 opportunities to see the BAY area 2 fer.

On May 21st, the Yankees are in Oakland at 1:05, and the Giants host the Cubs at 5:05 on the ESPN SUNDAY NIGHT GAME.  With a quick run to the BART station after the 1st game, you could conceivably make both contests for the duration.

On June 15th, a more friendly timed doubleheader goes 12:45 at AT & T Park, with a 7:05 start for o.co coliseum.

Several of the doubleheaders with big drives like STL/KC, CIN/STL and CLE/CIN are all feasible to see most of the action  for each, and a quick game may result in every pitch seen.

Yankee Stadium sees plenty of Doubleheaders every season with Citi Field and Citizens Bank Ball Park. Throw in multiple ESPN Sunday Night Games, and I have even same doubleheaders with Nats Park. Camden Yards, Fenway Park and the Rogers Center (by air).

There will be more doubleheaders forthcoming with more ESPN Sunday Night Games TBD, and other start times for games have not been posted yet other.

There are always cancellations that will also spawn more chances to “Let’s Watch Two.”

Citizens Bank Ball Park hosts the most doubleheader chances every year. They are compatibile with both New York Parks for doubleheaders, as well as Nats Park and Camden Yards. The best method to use is Amtrak here. but you can still drive to park from all, with Miles ranging from 100 - 135. The Phillies play enough 1:05 games, and those eastern seaboard clubs also see a lot of matinees each season.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at http://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
