Day 150: September 5, 1991

No Game

What I Remember

What do you do after you have been to every minor league park in professional baseball? You start going back to them. No really. We had ten days until we were due to be in Kansas City to begin the final stretch of the season in the major leagues so we decided to keep the minor league season going a little longer by seeking out the playoffs. We headed back to Stockton, California where, the next day we saw the first game in the California League Championship Series.

We drove south along Interstate 5 most of that Thursday, I am not sure where we stayed for the night but I think it was near Mount Shasta in the town of Weed, CA.

A Note about this Site

This site is intended to be a companion to the upcoming book In League with America. Although some games were particularly notable and will appear in the book, most of the results of the 199 games we saw over the course of the 1991 season will not. Our journey was never really intended to be at the games themselves, it was about the places we saw and the people we met along the way.

However, there is now an historic nature to the results from this season. All of the players we saw then, even in the minors, have long since retired. Some of the players we saw at Class A are now members of the Baseball Hall of Fame. These pages, then, will function as kind of a digital appendix with a brief recollection of each day, the result of the game(s) we saw that day and a map of our daily drive.
