From the Publisher:
In this alternately hilarious and insightful account, named Best Book of 1998 by "Publishers Weekly, Sports Illustrated" writer Rushin uses the lens of sports to come to a deeper understanding of America.A senior writer for "Sports Illustrated" magazine recounts his tour of America's sports attractions, from the locale of the film "Field of Dreams" to basketball player Larry Bird's hometownIn this alternately hilarious and insightful account, named a Best Book of 1998 by Publishers Weekly, >b>Sports Illustrated writer Steve Rushin uses the lens of sports to come to a deeper understanding of America.

On the eve of his thirtieth birthday, Steve Rushin decided to revisit the twin pursuits of his youth: epic car trips and an unhealthy obsession with sports. So he jumped into his fully alarmed Japanese S.U.V. and drove to American sports shrines for a year, everywhere from Larry Bird's boyhood home in French Lick, Indiana, to the cornfield just outside of Dyersville, Iowa, where Field of Dreams was filmed. Now in paperback, Road Swing is the story of his journey.
Annotation:
A writer who has worked for "Sports Illustrated" takes a yearlong journey through America. When he stops at the obvious sports shrines, he writes about them with humor and insight, and he also casts his eye toward other not-so-obvious shrines of sport in America. His comments about motels, eateries, and other pit stops are in the best tradition of travel writing.
