Day 188: October 13, 1991

No Game

What I Remember

After the Saturday game in Toronto we hustled back down to New Jersey where we would officially hang up the car keys for our Plymouth Voyager. We would fly on Monday to Atlanta for Game 5 of the NLCS and because the Twins eliminated the Blue Jays on Sunday we would also be flying to Minneapolis for the World Series starting the next weekend.

When we parked the car at my mother’s house in New Jersey that Sunday we had 53,970 miles on the odometer..all but about 15 coming that baseball season.

We spent Sunday night in Kendall Park and then I think my mom drove us to the airport for an early morning flight to Atlanta on Monday. T

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.
