EXCERPTS FROM “A FANS’ GUIDE TO THE…ULTIMATE BALLPARK TOUR,” which provides Major League Baseball fans with tips to organize a trip right for them; tips to ensure their trip doesn’t hit a bump in the road; places to see en route; and most importantly – the ballparks to see and how to see them! Plus, information from the great memories and how to log them!

- “Throughout…but especially in the Case Study section, you will receive a number of ballpark tips. Here’s Numero Uno!: Effective planning for your trip cannot be overstated!...Remember National Lampoon’s Vacation? Sure you do! Don’t let it happen to you! Save it for the movies!”

- “I didn’t tour the country in a Lear Jet or a posh limo. In fact, my first tour was completed when I was pretty low on funds!”

- “What’s the biggest obstacle facing diehard baseball fans who want nothing more than to visit all 30 Major League Baseball ballparks? The answer, of course, is time. Like most, including yours’ truly, you probably have a full-time job. And like most, you probably only have three weeks vacation per year – at most. Even Rickey Henderson can do the math – and he’s no rocket scientist…Unless you quit your job, leave your significant other, are filthy rich, or are retired, realize you are NOT going to visit all 30 Major League Baseball ballparks in one season. It’s unrealistic...“

- “Let’s say you have two weeks - or 10 working days of vacation. You might think that you haven’t a snowball’s chance of visiting even a third of the Major League Baseball ballparks in this time frame. You’d be wrong…”

- “For most ballpark trips – even short ones - I strongly suggest you plan at least six months in advance. This might seem a bit much but believe me it will ensure your trip is a smoother one and here's how...”

- “Ballpark Tour Trip No. 4 – Do expect the unexpected – and often! Be aware there may be some folks out there who failed to take their medicine before getting behind the wheel!”

- “Another must see? Roaming around the ballpark, taking in the vibe and atmosphere of the moment…The smell of hot dogs on the grill. The sounds of mass transit – trains, buses, cars - dropping fans off near the ballpark. The vendors shouting along every nearby street, “Program, get ‘ya programs here!”

- "Located 18-feet below street level, “The Jake” is a great ballpark – no matter where you sit. But make sure you arrive early..."

- “I prefer to sit in left field so I can try and catch a home run in this launch pad. Because the fences are so short, you can also converse with some of the players during batting practice…Any seat is a good seat at Camden Yards with one exception...”

- “Kauffman Stadium is a terrific, quaint ballpark…even the furthest seat above home plate! No nose-bleed feeling here and I can attest! During my visit, lights blinked above concessionaire stands similar to how the big Royal scoreboard lights blink in the outfield, showcasing the great continuity, pride and detail of the organization..."

- “All it takes is a little summer to discover the native bird in Minnesota is the mosquito…The Metrodump is just that – a dump. There are no good seats except for..."

- “Comisky Park is the classic case that ‘Excess does not necessarily lead to success.’”

- “Most conclusions are boring, repeating what you’ve already read. I’m not boring. I take action. And you should too. This (e-book) should be your call to action.”
