Baseball Between Us is the true story of a father-son road trip to visit every Major League Baseball stadium: 16 years, 32 ballparks and 43,000 miles together. Author Mike Luery - an award winning television news reporter - and his son Matt travel from California to Maine - capturing every big league stadium.This is the story of a father/son team who embrace baseball as their roadmap to figure out the lessons of life. The Luery boys are baseball buddies, but constantly get into heated arguments over music, food and bedtime. The book includes interviews with Maury Wills and Wes Parker of the Los Angeles Dodgers; Dave Stewart, of the Oakland Athletics; Bernie Williams, of the New York Yankees; and Ed Sprague Jr., of the Toronto Blue Jays. Baseball Between Us goes beyond sports. It's also a travelogue filled with pictures, including a hot air balloon trip over a herd of buffalo. This is the ultimate road trip of a father and son who discover each other on a journey made possible through the magic of baseball.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a baseball book Feb. 23 2012
By jmerch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Fast read that chronicles a Father & Son journey to every major league ballpark. This would be a great Father's Day gift for any baseball loving Dad trying to get inside the head of his teenage son. If you are into baseball history and/or if you have a true love of the game, the book delivers even more. Well worth the read.

This was a gift for a friend who said it was quite enjoyable. I did not read it myself. And the author met with me in order to autograph it for my friend.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Baseball Fans Jan. 4 2013
By BluIgwana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author is a reporter for one of the best local NBC affiliates in my area. I have watched & enjoyed his reports for meany years. When the book first came out, I purchased it for my brother, a lifelong baseball fan..and he thouroughly enjoyed it. I have recently purchased it as a gift for my boss who enjoyed it as both a baseball fan and a father. Mr. Luery's chronicle of his "quest" with his son is well-written and (according to other fans) very accurate. If you love the game and want to share a bonding experieince, this is a great book, and great gift.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great father-son relationship story Nov. 30 2012
By Fred - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mike Luery does a wonderful job of telling the story of how he and his son visited all of Major League Baseball parks together over the course of a number of years. Although the narrative theme that links the book together is baseball, the real story is the relationship between fathers and sons, and the journey of growing up together. An easy, enjoyable read told by a passionate baseball fan and a terrific father!
