Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0892047143, Paperback)

Roadside Baseball is a fascinating read as well as a fantastic travel guide and history book all in one. Baseball’s rich history is celebrated in Cooperstown, N.Y., but it’s only a glimpse of baseball’s storied past. Baseball history lives in the city streets of Brooklyn to the country fields of Iowa. It’s in these places you’ll find birthplaces, shrines, museums, final resting places and out-of-the-way spots where Baseball’s history was made or still is preserved. Buckminster Hotel, (Boston, MA), where the "Black Sox" planned their fix of the ’19 Series; Original "Little League" field and Museum in Willimsport, PA; Birthplace of Jackie Robinson in Cairo, GA; Fayetteville, NC, where Babe Ruth hit his first professional Home Run; Baxter Springs, KS, where Mickey Mantle was discovered by Yankees Scout Tom Greenwade; Kansas City, MO, birthplace and location of the Negro League Hall of Fame; Wrigley Field, Los Angeles, CA, the first stadium named Wrigley Field, 1925 – 1966; Information and selected photos for over 300 baseball historical sights; Regional, state-by-state layout.
