"Minor Trips", a minor league baseball newsletter, recognizes fans that have seen games at 100 different ballparks. Each person is awarded "a certificate suitable for framing". The newsletter was published for several decades by Bob Carson. In 2014 it was sold to "Spitball--The Literary Baseball Magazine".

Carson, the former editor and publisher of the newsletter, established the park counting guidelines which requires seeing a Major League, Affiliated Minor League, Independent Minor League, or Collegiate Summer Wood Bat League Game. Note: Not regular college games.

To qualify for "Races & Bases" on Roaming the Raceways, a person would need "Twin 100's", the 100 tracks necessary for listing on the RTR site, and the 100 ballparks required to earn the certificate from Minor Trips.
