OMDQ and I often joke about how we’re going to become famous for our travels in search of minor-league baseball. Apparently, it’s already been done, but it only made one man Lancaster-famous.
LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. – A love of America’s Pastime, a chance to see the country and some downtime after his manufacturing company stopped production were the key factors in guiding Chuck Barrage’s minor-league baseball journey this season.
Barrage, of Honey Brook, has visited 84 minor and major league parks since the beginning of 2007, seeing every home team play in four leagues and collecting a variety of memorabilia along the way.
He traveled as far north as Maine and as far south as Mexico, and he has the memorabilia to prove it.
But he doesn’t have a blog, so we’re still one step ahead.
