A road trip through American baseball history
With a tankful of gas and a passion for baseball history, Jason Love hits the road to discover some of the most and least famous baseball sites in America. On the way, he shares some stories of American baseball, along with the romantic connection of the sport and our everyday lives. As much as it’s an ode to baseball history in America, it’s also a tip of the cap to the simple joys in life, like eating hash browns at a Waffle House and exploring new places with family and friends.
In these essays, Jason Love tells the stories of baseball road trips to the Hall of Fame (NY), the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum (MD), former home of legendary Negro League player Judy Johnson (DE), and more. The book also includes stories and anecdotes on Jim Bunning’s perfect game, Mo’ne Davis, the Tidewater Summer League, Shoeless Joe Jackson, and his favorite player Steve Jeltz.
Slices of Americana is a baseball road-trip memoir in essays that offers tips and tidbits of obscure information you won’t find in regular old history books. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the sport, but they all have one message in common: If you love America’s Pastime, baseball is always in season.
