Hanks Celebrates His 50th By Visiting Ballparks

Subscribe Tom Hanks

TOM HANKS is celebrating his 50th birthday by visiting seven baseball parks with his pals. The movie star, who celebrated his big day earlier this month (09JUL06), came up with the sporting tour as a gift to himself and asked THE DA VINCI CODE director RON HOWARD and comedian DENNIS MILLER to join him. The trio made their third stop at a Cincinnati Reds vs New York Mets game in Ohio on Wednesday (19JUL06) and followed that with a trip to a Detroit Tigers, Michigan game yesterday (20JUL06). Hanks insists he won't be revealing the ballparks he still hopes to visit, stating he plans to arrive without fanfare. He says, "This is the dream you have all the way back." Having comedian Miller along for the ride came in useful on Wednesday (19JUL06) when the funnyman helped entertain the crowd in Cincinnati during a two-hour rain delay.

I just got married in July and my husband and I went to 12 baseball games from New York to Chicago and back. We saw Tom Hanks in Baltimore and then again the next day in Pittsburg!! He was five rows from us and I even got a picture. It was cool to come home from our honeymoon and find out he was doing the same thing as us at the same time! Kristen and Jim Elliott
