Day 185: October 10, 1991

Pittsburgh, PA

NLCS Game # 2

What I Remember

We shot video at both League Championship Series and at all the games of the World Series but there wasn’t much left to capture about the different aspects of the ballparks. We sat in a extended version of the Press Box beyond the right field wall and it was a heady experience being able to watch the game from there but we later got somewhat more interesting video being in the stands with everyone else.

That said, between our first pitch and custom jerseys in the regular season and a seat in the press box for the playoffs the Pirates were by far the nicest of many major league team to us and that earned our allegiance in the post season – we cheered for the Pirates and hoped to see the World Series there but there wasn’t much to root for that night. Steve Avery was dominant for the Braves and they tied the series 1-1 heading back to Atlanta.

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 about 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.
