By next Friday, he should have completed a trek on his bike from Atlanta to Cincinnati, in time to watch the Reds face the Cardinals.

But that’s only means 24-year-old Darren O’Donnell is only just short of halfway done with a quest to hit all 30 Major League Baseball parks in one season. Via his two-wheeler, going more than 10,000 miles.

His journey isn’t the first done on a bicycle, but just the latest, as we read in an MLB.com story (linked here), as well as ESPN.com (linked here).

He started near his hometown by visiting Seattle’s Safeco Field on April 8. He hit Angel Stadium (April 27) and Dodger Stadium (April 29) in short work, ending his own Tour of California in early May in San Diego. His shortest time trials are Aug. 9-10 for the Yankees and Mets, and Sept. 7-8 for both Chicago teams.

Hope he has a good cable and lock to go with it.
