Take me out to the ball game

Rugby and cricket coach Peter Grigg of Nelson set off on a 30,000 kilometre journey to visit all 30 major league baseball stadiums in the United States, and discover something about America too. The coach of the Nelson College First XV went to the hallowed grounds of Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, and talked to baseball aficionados about the subtles of a sport as American as apple pie. He's written written a book, 'Finding My Field of Dreams - A Kiwi in the Majors', about his epic pilgrimage.
