This work follows the journey Peter A. Taylor undertook during the summer of 2007, when he set out to achieve a long held ambition and see a baseball game in every major league ballpark, a minor league game in those states without a major league franchise, plus the All-Star game and the post-season. His adventures along the way include throwing out a first pitch in Connecticut, becoming a TV reporter for the post-season, and undergoing an eye operation. It also looks whimsically at America's pastime, and America, through the eyes of an Englishman, and how we are, in the words of George Bernard Shaw, two nations separated by a common language.
