Day 196: October 21, 1991

No Game

What I Remember

It was a travel day for the Twins and Braves as the series shifted to Atlanta and with the Twins ahead 2-0 it wasn’t at all clear that it would be coming back to the Twin Cities.

Sue and I couldn’t get a flight until the next day though and so we were stuck in Minnesota even as the teams moved south. I have no idea what we did that day hanging around the Bloomington Marriott…slept I’m guessing.

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.
