Meet Charlie Hamilton: Founder of AP Tours

Ever since I collected my first baseball card (I believe it was a 1963 Bob Duliba), I have loved baseball. You never forget your first major league game, and mine was the 1966 Bat Day at Yankee Stadium, where Earl Wilson of the Tigers out-dueled Jim Bouton 2-1.

I’ve been attending and loving ballgames ever since. I was even a season ticket holder at the old Yankee Stadium for a few years, and now that I live in Florida, I am currently a Spring Training season ticket holder for the Baltimore Orioles.

It is this passion for the game that led me to start America’s Pastime Tours. Being a small business owner in the retail and hospitality fields all my life, this is a natural progression. I hope you check out our website and look at the tours we have scheduled for this upcoming season.

Look forward to seeing you,
Charlie Hamilton

Our Mission

With the  advent of beautiful new stadiums — such as PNC Park in Pittsburgh, the new Busch Stadium in St. Louis, AT&T Park in San Francisco and many others have made traveling to these new parks a must for even a casual baseball fan. These new parks are in essence a throwback to an earlier time, when fans were close to the field, in a park with its own characteristics that made each venue unique.

Add the venerable old ball parks, such as Wrigley Field in Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston and the beautiful Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, and you can see the major league parks are as much of a draw as the action on the field. We want to cater not to just baseball fans, but to the fan who also appreciates the rich history that only the sport of baseball provides.
