Day 161: September 16, 1991

No Game

What I Remember

There were days on our Excellent Adventure, not many but a few, that really weren’t that excellent. They weren’t bad per se, they were just the kind of days we all have in living regular lives. They were days for errands like laundry, some writing and simple pleasures like a hot shower. We stayed at budget establishments, the Red Roof Inn comes to mind, on days like this and I think this might have been one of those days.

It started to get cloudy and cool after we left the heat of St. Louis and headed toward our next stop in Chicago and I think we stayed in a motel…did laundry and watched some television then moved on more refreshed the next day.

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.
