Biking for baseball: Wisconsin native bikes to 30 MLB stadiums
WAUKESHA- Wisconsin native and University of Wisconsin-Madison student Matt Stoltz is taking the tour of a lifetime. Stoltz is riding his bike solo 11,000 miles across the country to visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums, and he's doing it for a good cause. The 22-year-old is using his bike ride to raise funds and awareness for youth mentoring programs. He will donate $10,000 to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee this summer.
Stoltz is in the final inning as he prepares to wrap up his 6-month journey at Miller Park on Saturday October 3. Prior to his final destination, Stoltz will make a stop at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Before departing for the "Windy City," Stoltz made time to call into CBS 58 Morning News from Waukesha, Friday morning.
“It’s an adventure. I had a foot of snow coming over the Rockies, I’ve had tornadoes, flooding in Texas, got poison ivy, got swarmed by a bunch of ants one night when I was camping. There’s been all sorts of adversity on the trip, and there’s tough days when I’m [in] the grueling heat of Florida in July. But it’s fun, at the same time you meet a lot of great people throughout every corner of the country. It’s an adventure every step of the way," said Stoltz.
