Review

Associated Press, March 11, 2010
"The book is part travel guide, part nostalgic look at the game and its history. Either way, it works for baseball fans. …'The Baseball Fan's Bucket List' is for readers who know and love baseball….Wherever you are in life's journey--just arriving at the ballpark, heading into the batter's box or rounding third--this book gives some practical ideas for quality baseball experiences before crossing home plate."

If you love baseball, you'll love the 162 recommendations the authors, Robert Santelli & daughter Jenna Santelli, are proposing you do before you die. From visiting such venerable and historic ballparks like Wrigley Field & Fenway Park (my personal favorites), to reading some terrific books (this list only scratches the surface of "must reads"), to engaging in some wonderful activities, such as "fantasy camps" (try hitting Bob Gibson's fastball, even now), to exploring the wonders of Cooperstown; this book is filled with wonderful suggestions, although you may need a little extra cash in the bank to take advantage of all of 'em.

If you're on a budget, you can always peruse Bert Sugar's Baseball Hall of Fame: A Living History of America's Greatest Game; it's almost as good as going to Cooperstown. Since reading is an inexpensive way to savor the game's history, here are a few other recent publications to add to the list: Fifty-Nine in '84: Old Hoss Radbourn, Barehanded Baseball, and the Greatest Season a Pitcher Ever Had, Willie Mays: The Life, The Legend, Roger Maris: Baseball's Reluctant Hero & Satchel: The Life and Times of an American Legend.

Finally, learn how to play "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" on the piano, guitar, or harmonica. It's guaranteed to put you in the spirit for another new season; and you'll certainly impress family and friends; but play it with feeling!

I have to say I was very disappointed with this book. Yes, it does give 162 things to do in your baseball bucket list. Unfortunately, if you are an average baseball fan, you can probably make up a list of 100 or more easily. The kicker was they separately listed going to Boston to see the Red Sox play, going to San Diego to see the Padres play, etc which was very redundant and nothing new. That's 30 things you know already! Then saying to watch Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, or read Ball Four, Glory of Their Times, etc-just was not worth making into a book. I guess I was hoping for something new, but previous books like Baseball Road Trip and 101 Baseball Things to do... already covered these ideas. $16 to hear the same things was not worth it.

If you are a baseball fanatic like I am and are curious about things to do to increase your baseball love life then this is the book for you. It gives you a lot of details on 162 things that you should do before you buy the farm if you love baseball and comes with websites, phone numbers, and other information needed for you to do and check off these 162 things on your bucket list. A must buy for any baseball fan.

This is the "year of baseball" at our house since we are doing a road trip to see all 30 major league ball parks. This book has given me lots of ideas to enhance our trip and continue seeing and doing baseball related things long beyond the trip. My only complaint is that sometimes the author assumes you are a guy (which I am not), but I can live with that.
