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. Pahigian, who has previously written about the pleasures of building vacations around baseball in THE ULTIMATE MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ROAD TRIP, is spot on again, although he omits information such as websites and hours of operations, a conscious decision on his part to “force” the reader to enjoy actually reading the book without the supplemental activity of running to the computer for further information.
