Father with MS, Son (8) Breaking Record

In 2010 I found out that I have Multiple Sclerolsis. Since then my health has been going down hill. Visiting all 30 Major League Baseball Stadiums in one summer has always been a dream of mine. As this disease progresses, it is becoming less likely that it will happen at all. I have six children, the youngest is eight. The older children are very helpful and understanding. The little guy, eight, loves baseball, and wants to play catch all the time. This is something that I can no longer do. I want a chance to bond with him. I want to be able to leave a lasting memory for him long after I am gone. With your help, I have decided to attempt to break the World Record for fastest time visiting these stadiums. This is my 30 ballparks in 25 days attempt. During the trip I will be filming and writing down all events and blogging about our trip. My goal is to turn the trip into a book and a documentry so that my family has memories of the active me, and not the person I am becoming. Please help me make this dream possible.
