My 30 Ballpark Summer: A Journey Through Baseball's Generations
Tobey Shiverick was 78 years old when he launched his quest to visit all 30 big league ballparks. The story of his 34,000 mile trip across the country of baseball is part travelogue, part ballpark reference for seniors, part intimate diary, part unifier of the generations of his family. Join Tobey on his baseball journey, and you may be inspired to embark on one of your own. More
When Tobey Shiverick turned 78, he gave himself the gift of fulfilling a lifelong dream: To see a ballgame at every major league stadium in one season. Five months, 34,000 miles, a cycle and a steal of home later, he was done. The result was an unforgettable trip across the country of baseball, and an opportunity to grow his love of the game for himself, and across the generations of his family. Part travelogue, part intimate baseball diary, part ballpark reference for seniors, MY 30 BALLPARK SUMMER shares what’s best about baseball today, remembers some of what has been lost, and celebrates what will be great about the game forever. From planning an 18-flight itinerary, to negotiating upper deck stairs beer-in-hand, to comparing Dodger Stadium with Ebbets Field, to the joy of eating hot dogs with grandchildren, MY 30 BALLPARK SUMMER is at once highly personal, while still full of the enthusiasm and love of baseball shared by all lifelong fans.
