You see, what happened to the new yard, built directly across the street from the cozy old one the team had called home for eight decades, was that-nearly overnight-it had become a relic, a monument to large multi-tiered suburban stadiums with little charm, set among a vast sea of parking lots.

In their book, The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip, Josh Pahigian and Kevin . When the stadium was originally built, Kansas City was the westernmost major league city other than those along the Pacific Coast (1,600 mi.

The upper deck is quite steep, though not as high as other parks built during this time. Many minor-league stadiums built in the 1980s and early 1990s, as well as Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, employ a similar design.

The most entertaining and comprehensive guide to every baseball fan’s dream road trip—including every new ballpark since the 2004 edition—revised and completely updated!

My father has recently embarked on a bucket list. See a game at every mlb stadium. This was the perfect gift. The attention to detail is outstanding. History, stadium info, distance to the closest 3 stadiums, info on food and lodging near by. Everything you could need when traveling to a ball park. I'm sure as years pass it will become less useful with park and city changes. But for now this is exactly what he needs. Highly recommend for anyone that enjoys seeing baseball games as they travel. Now I just need one for the NBA.

My family has visited over 20 baseball parks since the first edition of this book was published, so I was thrilled to see that an updated version of it was available. The information given in the book is very VERY useful when planning a trip to a park you've never been to, starting with what sections have the best seats (and which sections to avoid) when purchasing tickets, how to get there (including public transportation options), where to park if you drive, what foods to try (or avoid) while at the game, and especially all the information about the features in and around the ballpark. The true baseball fanatic will enjoy the historical information for each ballpark/team. It's enjoyable to read, in no way is it a dry book of facts. I highly recommend it for any fan planning a trip to a baseball park for a major league game.

Wanted to get something to prep for a round-the-country baseball summer. This is a pretty good guide, complete with scalper info, food reviews on the parks and the local areas and advice on seating for all sections of the ballparks. It is somewhat out of date, since there is info on Montreal but not Washington and the Florida info is old as well. Basically any ballpark newer than 2003 isn't in here. Other than that a good resource and even fun to read.

Update: After hearing from co-author Josh Pahigian about the new edition that came out months before Amazon sold me the old version, I was able to get Amazon to upgrade my copy. Very happy with the revised edition and have raised my rating to five stars. There just isn't another good source about seating, food and the surrounding areas of strange ballparks out there.

One minor quibble for Josh and Kevin: The first Japanese-born player in the major leagues was not Hideo Nomo, but Pitcher Masanori Murakami,who played for the SF Giants in 1964-65. And the first full-time starting position player from Japan was <drumroll> Dave Roberts who was born on Okinawa. Roberts played for the Indians, Dodgers, Red Sox, Padres and Giants.

Awesome book. I bought it as a gift and started to read it. it was so good I bought a copy for myself. The insights into each city and the local baseball history and culture is unsurpassed.

A must read for any true fan that is thinking about going to a different ballpark.

I am mapping out my summer trip now!

This was a Christmas gift for my step-dad, who visits at least one new ballpark a year when the Pirates, our home team, are playing. He loves trivia and always asks us questions like: "what food is this city famous for?" This book answers all of those questions in an easy-to-read list format along with a witty commentary-style article about each ballpark, which provides him with even more trivia ammo with which to stump us. He also makes sure to read about the specific ballpark to which he is going when he is making his itinerary for the trip. I hear about how great this book is at least once a month, which is saying something since it's 5 months past Christmas. Great read, thanks for the information Josh and Kevin!

Several years ago my wife and I decided to go on a baseball road trip, and we purchased the first edition of this book along with several other baseball road trip books. It wasn't very long when this book was completely battered and warn and the other books spent most of their time in the trunk of our car. This basically has everything you will want in a baseball road trip book, it reviews the seats, beer, food (even trademark food like Walleye on a Stick at Target Field and Rocky Mountain Oysters at Coors field), hot dogs, parking, where to buy tickets from scalpers, stadium and team history, bars and restaurants in the area, and other attractions in the area. Personally, I can't imagine visiting a new baseball stadium without first reading their section on it, and subsequently following their advice to get the most out of the trip. In addition, the authors have a great sense of humor which makes every section an enjoyable read. While I now have two young daughters and my stadium touring is currently on hiatus for a few more years, I still purchased the latest edition because it is such a great read.

If you are looking to visit any MLB Stadium and you are searching for a guide book, this is the one that you need.

My favorite section is about AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. I grew up listening to the Giants on the radio. Nothing better than hearing Willy Mays hit one out of the park! I've been to Candlestick and AT&T. Being in the bleachers or in a good seat, it's always a thrill to watch the guys in action. Now I'm enjoying the games more because I can appreciate each stadium that the Giants play in. It's like having a memory of visiting each park. Thank you, Guys, for sharing your trip.
I just got done with a baseball road trip hitting up 11 ballparks in 12 days. I cannot recommend this book enough. They point out all the details inside the park, what to do before and after, where to eat inside the park, where to sit. They keep it light and have some comedic jabs in there to keep it a fun read. They put in some history of the teams and how they engineered the ballpark to what it is today from previous ballparks whether it be from their own past or other ballparks being built recently.
