What I Remember
It was a travel day between Pittsburgh and Toronto 30 years ago today. Both League Championship Series were tied 1-1 and the ALCS would resume that Friday but we would be going to game 4 in Toronto the next day.
I recall that we stayed at a motel that evening somewhere around Erie after an ill-advised lunch of oysters in Pittsburgh had given me a bellyache. Go figure.
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.
