During the summer of 1985, Wood visited each of the 26 Major League Baseball stadiums. He graded the sites on eight criteria: layout and upkeep, the ball field, seating, the scoreboard, food, courtesy of employees, facilities and atmosphere. Giving grades from A+ to Doctorate, Wood concluded that the two best ball parks in the majors were Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and Royals Stadium in Kansas City.

Great book loved it so much I read it 3 times
read it many years ago (and met the author)-----fine book---- this is a copy for a friend
I have owned the book "Dodger Dogs to Fenway Franks" virtually since its publication in 1989. As a baseball fan for many years, I had always myself fantasized of taking the trip Mr Wood did to every baseball stadium in America. Bob Wood's book is quite simply, one of the best books I have ever read in my life. It is a combination of baseball, travel, thrill seeking, and a trip of pleasure that every baseball fan can dream of. While reading the book, I could feel what it would have been like to sit with Mr Wood in his car on that trip. Despite weather, a robbery of his possessions in Northern California, a tight budget, and incredibly long drive, and an impending baseball strike that threatened to wipe out his dream of getting to every stadium, Bob Wood perservered and finished his journey. He achieved his goal through it all, and provided an exciting book that any baseball fan who has ever dreamed of taking the trip should be proud to read. I salute Mr Wood and his accomplishment. While is is now 18 years after his trip, it remains my favorite book of all time, fiction or non fiction. Bravo, Bob, you have created a masterpiece. A book that baseball fans and any readers should be proud of and salute you for.
Great book, I've read it numerous times and every time I enjoy a different aspect I overlooked in the past. From the author's obsession with Frank Sinatra, his driving and dining experiences, to his detailed and gastronomical adventures in baseball parks across America this is one of my favorite road trip books
Absolute must read for any true baseball fan. Have read this book many times over. Always makes me sad for the ballparks we've lost. In fact, it brings me to tears. But, it's worth taking this ultimate baseball adventure, cross-country ride, with Bob Wood. If you truly love baseball, then find yourself a hardbound (HB) copy of this book. Paperback (PB) will not do, because you won't be able to put it down.
This is one of the best baseball books ever written! Even non-baseball fans will enjoy reading about his epic road trip on a shoe-string budget. A must read for all true baseball fans!
I read this book in college and it inspired me to try and see every major league ballpark during my lifetime. I am very excited to have bought it from Amazon and added it to my library. The rating system will appeal to both the diehard and casual baseball fan. I especially like his ranking of the concessions and highlighting any unique or local foods that are served. Although this book is out of print and somewhat outdated as new parks start to replace the classics, it is still a good addition to any baseball fan's collection.

This enchanted ride through one summer of baseball and hot dogs is not to be missed. It feels as if you are actually riding shotgun with Mr. Wood. This book is often humorous, sometimes sad, and always entertaining. One of the best.
