I don't think there are enough twin bills to see that happen again.

Has he actually done it and would he be still married when he got back? (lol)

The author analyzed that year's schedule and provided various itineraries to take you from one city to another to take in as many games involving as many teams as possible in the least amount of time and with the least amount of travel.

As a teenager, I actually followed one of those trips, taking me (I think) to Minnesota, Milwaukee, Chicago (Cubs and Sox), Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and St. Louis in the space of 10 days or so, without seeing the same team twice. Great time for a young guy, but I couldn't do it now.
