Really enjoyed this despite being pretty much completely uninterested in baseball (or hot dogs – seemingly an important part of the baseball ritual). But the baseball parts aren’t really about baseball, they’re more about the family trip, the stadiums picked out to visit, the histories of the team, and what the family did during the games. That combined with profiles and visits to some of my favorite bookstores (Prairie Lights, Quimby’s, Downtown/Malaprops!) and more that I’ve never been to made this a real joy to get back to.
Highly recommended to anyone who loves a roadtrip and wants to see how to pack a ton of things in to a short time and yet have the whole family enjoy it.
