Day 164: September 19, 1991

No Game

What I Remember

I know this was another day without a game, A Thursday spent somewhere between Chicago and Detroit. I cannot remember much beyond that. It was cold in Chicago on Wednesday and very cold in Detroit on Friday so I am assuming we spent this night in a motel somewhere but I am really not sure where.

We didn’t mind having the off days to get to our next parks more easily but by this time I think we were anticipating the final push to the remaining parks and what lay beyond in October.

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.
