Stan Fridstein is a lifelong baseball fan. As for his career in baseball, it was tragically cut short when as a 10 year old, he discovered he couldn't hit a curve ball. However, this malady did nothing to diminish his enthusiasm for the game. Going Yard is a calling for Stan. His financial goal is to "not lose too much money" on the book. However, he believes that helping others realize the remarkable experiences he shared with his son will be reward enough. And if that doesn't work, there's always the good karma that comes out of helping others.
Going Yard: The Ultimate Guide for Major League Baseball Stadium Road Tripsby Stan Fridstein
There are hidden treasures in each stadium, like the 8 miles of zippers that connect the artificial turf in Toronto's Rogers Centre, the Primanti Steak
When Stan Fridstein and his son decided to visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums, they never realized how challenging it would be to find useful information that would help craft the most memorable experiences.
There are hidden treasures in each stadium, like the 8 miles of zippers that connect the artificial turf in Toronto's Rogers Centre, the Primanti Steak Sandwich at Pittsburgh's PNC Stadium, the best team store in Major League Baseball at Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark, the lone red seat in the right field bleachers at Fenway Park where Ted Williams hit the longest home run in Boston history, and so much.
Learn where to spend your non-baseball stadium time. The games are generally about 3 hours long...that leaves a lot of time for sports fans to explore the amazing sites and hidden treasures in the markets that house the MLB teams.
When should you stay near the stadiums and when should you stay elsewhere? How do you secure special private ballpark tours? How do you plan the logistics of each trip? Where is the best food in each venue? Which seats do you want to avoid due to the sun or wind in certain stadiums?
So many questions and there was no comprehensive, easy to follow resource available when Stan and his son began their quest.
Stan promised himself that when he and his son completed their journey, they would create a guide for others interested in visiting many or all MLB ballparks. Whether you're doing it alone, with a buddy or with your kid, this invaluable book provides everything you'll need to create the most extraordinary possible baseball road trips.
You won't want to miss a single experience and this wonderful guide has you covered.
