Day 195: October 20, 1991

Minneapolis, MN

1991 World Series Game 2

What I Remember

We did get our tickets for Game Two. As you will eventually see in the video, they are very nice fancy tickets with the World Series logo as well as that of the Twins and the Braves. Unfortunately they were also just like the 55 thousand or so that were sold for Game Two and thus, when we showed up at the Metrodome gate with our hulking video camera we were told that we could come in, but the camera couldn’t.

What we needed to be able to bring a camera in was a press credential like the one in the gallery below and we had those for the remaining games in the series. So, we had some interesting video outside the Dome before Game Two but nothing after we went inside.

It was another good game for the home team as Scott Leius, who had been in Elizabethton, TN just three years earlier hit the game winning home run in the 8th inning for a 3-2 Twins win.

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.
