Our Excellent Season

This is the schedule we followed in 1991. During the course of the trip it changed a bit from the one I originally planned. The first time was the result of the “what time is it” snafu described in Chapter Three of In League with America. Later, in May and then again in July, I switched up the order of a few stops to make the travel schedule a little more efficient. If you are looking at this list of stops and thinking, “that’s a lot of driving,” you are right. It was 54,000 miles from start to finish and that doesn’t include the World Series stops because we flew between those games.

Clicking on the city below will take you to a summary of that day’s stop including a look at the trip we took that day and some images from the programs we collected along the way. You will also find, in most cases, a game account from the local newspaper and sometimes a feature story about our trip. Clicking on the team names will take you to the 1991 roster page for that team on the fantastic baseball resource – baseball-reference.com. Enjoy!
