Darren O'Donnell

The Baseball Biker

by Mike Giandomenico

There are some folks who are lucky if they attend one baseball game a year, perhaps even in a few years. For Darren O’Donnell, it was 30 stadiums or bust in one season with a catch – traveling 10,700 miles** across country to visit every Major League Ballpark on his bicycle. The Idaho native quit his job, moved out of his apartment, and embarked on the trip of a lifetime from Bellingham, Washington in April, and wrapped up the excursion in St. Louis in September.

Darren O’Donnell has decided to intertwine two of his passions: baseball and bicycle riding. The 24-year-old college graduate is in the middle of a six-month long bike ride around the United States, with a quick stop in Canada. But what makes this journey especially unique is the stops along the way. Darren is on a quest to catch a game at every Major League Baseball stadium this season.
