Excellent Adventure Day # 92
Cal Comes Through
Tonight’s Stop on the Low Mileage Tour doesn’t really count as an official stop, we would see this ballpark twice more before the season was over.
But the 1991 All Star Game was one of the amazing highlights of a season that really had it all. Tonight’s video, while short because we didn’t bring our camera into Skydome that night, still tells the story perfectly.
Among all the things I miss about major league baseball this summer, I might miss the All Star Game most of all. The game would have taken place in Los Angeles next Tuesday but has been canceled this year as players try to prepare for their abbreviated season. To me, it’s not only the best of all the major league sports all star contests, its a highlight of the summer. I hope you enjoy just a couple of minutes of looking back on a true mid-summer classic.
It’s back to the roots tomorrow…back into the United States, back to the Short Season-A New York-Penn League and an old ballpark in the Finger Lakes of New York, McDonough Park – the 1991 home of the Geneva Cubs.
