Touch 'Em All: In the summer of 2011, four high school graduates from Seattle took off in a decaying hippie bus to try and see a baseball game in every Major League ballpark. Yet as the miles rolled on and the temperature outside increased, the many stresses of life on the road and intimidation brought on by an imminent departure for college made their way into The Van and the minds of the naive occupants, turning the journey into something far more than a trip around the country. What emerged was a new perspective on the nature of childhood friendships, and an increased appreciation for the many wonders of baseball, and a tale that appeals to sport lovers and road trippers alike.
Part ballpark handbook, part coming-of-age narrative, Touch "Em All is a collection of short stories that range from educating to entertaining and combine to offer a juvenile view of America through its Present and Pastime.
