ARLINGTON — Visiting all 30 Major League ballparks sounds like a dream to baseball fans, but it's a mission for one man.

Jacob Landis rode into Rangers Ballpark in Arlington Saturday, the 24th stop on his journey that started in April.

Landis is cycling more than 10,000 miles to raise money for cochlear implants. The procedure provides a "bionic ear"  for hearing impaired people who can't afford the technology.

It's a need he understands; Landis received one when he was 10.
