Bob Wood sets out to visit all the current major league ballparks in the summer of 1985. He succeeds, and has other adventures along the way. And he reminisces quite a bit about his childhood as he travels. The author and I grew up in the same neighborhood, and that neighborhood is an important part of his story.
It’s an OK book, in general, as much about the trip and his life as it is about the ballparks.
Note that these are mostly out-of-commission ballparks, at this point. I’ve seen about half of these yards, and generally agree with his assessments of them.
