Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Ultimate Baseball Road-Trip is a comprehensive guide to all the diverse and fascinating major league baseball ballparks throughout the country by two entertaining young writers whose love for the game of baseball and the game of life overflows from every page. Josh Pahigian and Kevin O'Connell's approach to skillfully planning and fully appreciating a road-trip, or just a visit to a single park, is funny and irreverent and loaded with information designed to make the most of the experience.

Part travel manual, part ballpark atlas, part baseball history book, part restaurant and city guide, and, not least, part epic narrative, The Ultimate Baseball Road-Trip encompasses all the essential elements of a full-blown baseball road-trip. Included are ticket and travel information, a detailed guide to the best and worst seats in each park, folklore and statistics on each park, a hilarious rating of each park's trademark foods, and profiles of nearby sports bars and baseball attractions, all within a lively narrative that reminds us that baseball is the ultimate metaphor for all the important things in life.

Synopsis:

An enthusiastic, irreverent, but exhaustive guidebook to all the stadiums of Major League Baseball. If the Tappet Brothers of Car Talk were to write a baseball guide, this would be it.

About the Author

Josh Pahigian swore off baseball for the first time at age 12 when the ball went through Buckner's legs. He rejoined Red Sox Nation the following March when the Red Sox won their first Spring Training game. Josh has published short stories in a number of literary journals and has written for several newspapers. Currently he covers collegiate and high school sports for the Portland Press Herald in Portland, Maine. He holds degrees from the College of the Holy Cross and Emerson College.

Kevin O'Connell was born into the baseball abyss that was the rain-soaked Pacific Northwest of the 1960s. He supported the San Francisco Giants as a youngster and then the hapless expansion Seattle Mariners. His conversion was finalized when Edgar Martinez arrived in Seattle. Kevin graduated from Gonzaga University and is an avid fan of college basketball as well as baseball. He holds a graduate degree from Emerson College.
