Me and my eldest son at The 2015 All-Star Game.

Ballpark Savvy is a website dedicated to helping fans think differently about how they attend baseball games.

The focus here is primarily on how you can cut corners to save money on things like tickets and food, and find a free parking spot while you're at it.

In addition, I try to throw in some ideas about free experiences or "can't miss" experiences that will make your trip better overall.

This idea hit me in 2008 when I was planning my own baseball road trip with my dad, and I was struggling to find the types of things I was looking for. I didn't really care when the park opened or how many people it held, I wanted to know how to get the best bang for my buck.

Since 2008 the site has grown quite a bit. I've been fortunate to have some media coverage as well which has really increased the size of my ego. 

As far as me, my name is Jake Cain and I am a family man in Cincinnati, OH. I am a big Reds fan, and some of the great memories I have are spending time with my dad at the ballpark. I hope this site helps you create some of those same types of memories, without having to take out a second mortgage to do it.

I've only been to about a dozen stadiums myself, so much of what I have to offer is from research and from tips I get from other fans. So, if something you read is not quite correct or not something you agree with, try to just move on rather than sending me a nasty email. That said, if you need to contact me please email jakecain7 AT gmail dot com. (I'm assuming if you're human you can translate that into a properly formatted email address...)
