Fans can also have fun, according to Josh Pahigian, by visiting any of the 101 BASEBALL PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU STRIKE OUT. From the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown to the banks of the New Jersey river where they harvest the indigenous mud to rub the shine off new balls, there are ballparks, museums, restaurants and other attractions (including the Alcor Life Extension Foundation, where Ted Williams s head was reported to be stored in the deep freeze) to satisfy the most particular customers. Pahig ...more

I would have given this 4 Stars if Josh had stopped at 100 and left that idiot Dysktra's Car Wash off this list. Overall though I loved the way this book was put together. A mish-mash of different baseball related things to do, see, eat at, etc. throughout the USA. I liked that it wasn't just one type of baseball element that Pahigian was focused on (like ballparks, or museums). I also like that with each of his selections he provides a picture (for most) and the location of the place so if you ...more

Decent read, needs updating.

Decent read, needs updating.

The book was so-so because it showed some places that even the die-hard baseball fan probably wouldn't go to simply because some lack historical significance. But it does show holes-in-the-walls such as restaurants and even a car wash. It's a good starter book for the baseball traveller nonetheless.

Interesting book on baseball sites, museums, ballparks, etc. that are apparently must sees before "striking out" in life. Includes Baseball HOF in Cooperstown, Yankee Stadium memorial Park, grave sites and individual player museums, etc. In case you are keeping score, I as a baseball afficiando have visited less than 10 pct.

Features 101 places that are interesting to see to a baseball fan. Each is profiled and includes a photo. Insightful.

My review for this book will be quite simple, as it really comes down to two questions:

1. Do you like baseball (especially baseball history)?

2. Do you like to travel?

If you answer yes to both of those questions, this is going to be a nice little book to read and/or keep on your coffee-table. Of course, there are always different opinions about what the "best spots" are in terms of baseball-themed locations, but these 101 seem pretty true-to-the-mark.

"101 Baseball Places" is a simple "list book",

Although a little outdated now, this book provides baseball fans with many different ideas of places to visit from the well-known like Cooperstown and Field of Dreams to many lesser-known ones (such as the part of the Forbes Field wall at the University of Pittsburgh). It was a book that I cited when I wrote "Road Trips, Routes, and Royals".
Jim Townsend
Great book about a few of the well-known, and a lot of the lesser-known, places any baseball fan should visit.
