What I Remember
This was the last off day on Bill & Sue’s Excellent Adventure until the lifetime of off days that have come since we finished the trip 30 years ago.
We flew back to Minneapolis and checked into a Super 8 motel on the outskirts of the city. As I said on the video, it’s not exactly the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta but we were getting ready to go to the final two games of a classic world series. We would have happily slept in a tent…although autumn weather had definitely arrived in Minnesota.
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.
