About this project

During the 2012 Baseball Season We will document the history of Baseball in many major cities. We will visit all 30 MLB Stadiums and review there history. While we will also go to Many Minor League baseball towns. The documentary is based on the idea of documenting the history of a sport that was made famous in the United States. We will Start in St louis (The Defending World Series Champions). Hit and our  Finish in my home town of Carbondale, IL.
