Have you ever dreamed of attending all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums in 30 days? For Michigan native and Tigers season ticket holder Eric Mueller, this dream will become a reality beginning Aug. 16.Mueller is about to celebrate his 50th birthday and plans to undertake the baseball journey of a lifetime for a good cause. Mueller lost his father to cancer 13 years ago and hopes to use the epic trip as a means to raise awareness and money to fight the diseases."I was looking to try to do something for my 50th birthday and instead of just buying some expensive toy or doing something like that, this just kind of popped into my head: 'That sounds like fun,'" Mueller said. "So I started planning it last year."The Detroit News has more on his story:Beginning Aug. 16, with a day-night double-header at Wrigley Field in Chicago and Miller Park in Milwaukee, Mueller will visit 30 major-league ballparks in 30 days.Here's his itinerary: After Cub-Brewers, he'll hit Atlanta, Texas, San Diego, Los Angeles (Angles), Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles (Dodgers), Houston, Arizona, Colorado and St. Louis on Aug. 28.Then he comes east to New York, first the Mets, then the Yankees, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Kansas City and Minnesota before his off day Aug. 28.And here's his final leg: Miami, Tampa, Chicago (White Sox), Toronto, Pittsburgh and, last but not least, Comerica Park on Sept. 14."My wife thought it was a great idea," Mueller told the News of his quest. "I guess you can take that one of two ways. Listen, everybody's got a bucket list, right?"Those who want to contribute to his cause can visit 30parks30days.com to place a donation. All proceeds are set to go toward cancer research.Via Eye on Baseball
