Baseball is America's pastime, and for most of the fans in the stands it is all about family fun time as well! Join us as we take you on a journey across the United States and Canada where we introduce you to the ballparks, the people and the fun that is found in the Minor and Independent Leagues of Professional Baseball. It's as much fun as you can possibly have without going out on the road yourselves. But heck! Get out there as well and enjoy a game soon!
“Readers will relish absorbing the record of John and Vicki’s travels, not so much the ballparks themselves as the multi-faceted experience of being in these special places for a couple of well-spent hours.”
"Through an artful lens and thoughtful interviews, we are treated to the humanity and history of America's oldest sport and the communities that are its roots." Alan L.
"The intimacy of the photos and the prose of the game and its’ Ballyard's resonate in our memories. B2B is like a travelogue of our youth as seen through the softened lens of our shared experience."
"There is more to baseball than what happens inside the foul lines. You guys have proved that....Good luck on your next edition."
"John and Vick Hoppin’s Ballpark 2 Ballpark is just plain fun. And that is exactly what its authors intend it to be."

“Minor League Baseball represents everything that’s good about our great nation: It’s fun, affordable, often zany, family-friendly entertainment that unites disparate communities and brings people together. John and Vicki Hoppin’s wonderful new book captures it all – and brings it to life in gorgeous, vivid detail."
