Description

Now in paperback! From sandlots and skyboxes to TV rooms and sports bars, America's love for baseball has inspired too-numerous-to-count memories, discussions, and tributes. Josh Pahigian takes us on a road trip across America to honor the game's players, fans, and ballparks. Through a series of engaging essays, he reminds us of the game's effect on American culture: how the game evolved while the nation came of age, how baseball helped break down barriers, and how it unified citizens when we needed it most. Whether we travel by car or plane or sit in the comfort of our armchair, this book leads us to 101 of the very best baseball places-including the Ted Williams Museum, Ozzie Smith's Restaurant & Sports Bar, the remnants of Forbes Field, Babe Ruth's gravesite, McCovey Cove, and dozens of other captivating landmarks and curios that celebrate our national pastime.
