My last official driving day of the tour. I am thinking about making one more stop, but the distance it took for me to see all 30 stadiums in one summer ended up being 16,905 miles. I was only 2,000 miles off on my original estimate.
Driving back across the border into the US was surprisingly easier than when I came into Canada. It may have been because this time the border patrol agent I spoke to was a baseball fan and understood the quest that I am currently on. I have realized over the past three months that I have the perfect way to find out if a stranger is really a baseball fan or not. I have met hundreds of people this summer and have told them all that I am visiting all 30 baseball stadiums in one summer. I have gotten a lot of different responses, but only a handful have ever asked me “Why?” If you have to ask, you may not be a baseball fan. When I crossed the border into Canada I had to get out of my car and answer several questions as to “why” I was driving to Toronto to just see one game. Coming back to the States I did not have to even open my trunk. The woman in the booth understood, wished me luck and told me she was jealous.
What I listened to in the car:
The Todd Barry Podcast – Nikki Glaser
Nerdist – Kumail Nanjiani
Nerdist – Tig Notaro
The Indoor Kids
Ronna and Beverly
I honestly can not believe that this is almost over. I have reached my final destination. 29 stadiums down, one more to go. I did not plan it this way, but the final stadium is the oldest. Fenway Park, here I come.
