What I Remember
This was the third straight day without baseball and the longest stretch without going to a game all season. What did we do? We hiked around the beautiful Sonoran desert. We did laundry. We slept more than we had in months. In essence, we acted like tourists and recharged our batteries for the final push. The next day it was back to the yard.
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.
