Grand slam - Redondo Beach man hits all 30 MLB parks in 26 days

Josh Robbins may have broken a record in his headlong cross-country rush to visit all 30 Major League Baseball parks in just 26 days, the Daily Breeze reports:

Robbins, 32, established himself July 11 in Milwaukee as a potential entry in Guinness World Records. After traveling 14,212 miles and spending more than $2,000 in gas, Robbins saw ballgames in 30 cities faster than anybody.    

"I think the great irony is I don't own a car," the native New Yorker said.    

It isn't clear whether his record - beating the old mark by two days - will be recognized, but he doesn't care.


Four times he saw games in two different ballparks on the same day.    

"Everyone kind of likes records and speed," he said. "I feel like I'm the biggest baseball fan and I got obsessed with it. It was the ultimate trip for me. I wanted to see if I could do it."
