Instead of featuring a travel product this week, I thought we would feature a travel book – especially one that’s based on my two favorite things: traveling and baseball. Roadside Baseball by Chris Epting is about the locations of America's baseball landmarks and it chronicles more than 500 important events in baseball history with detailed descriptions of the event and information on each location. The book is packed with historical data, trivia, photographs and baseball lore. Entries include the birthplaces of baseball legends, ballparks, museums and halls of fame, final resting places and many locations that are no longer standing. From out-of-the-way spots to the most popular stadiums in the U.S. and Canada, no site is too small or insignificant to be included in this comprehensive directory. Entries include the site of Babe Ruth's first home run; the location of the Field of Dreams; the Buckminster Hotel in Boston, where the Black Sox planned their fix of the 1919 World Series; the original little league field and museum in Williamsport, Pennsylvania; the birthplace of Jackie Robinson; the place where Mickey Mantle was discovered by a scout from the New York Yankees; and the site of the original Wrigley Field, erected in Los Angeles in 1925. Ken Burns, filmmaker and baseball historian said, "I can imagine this book in the glove compartment of every true fan's car, a handy reference to this beloved game no matter where in the country you are.”

I featured this site when it first came out a couple of years ago but shortly afterwards they went offline. Hopefully, they're back for good because their service is invaluable for travelers. It allows you to set a wake up call at a specific time so you don't have to rely on a hotel wake up call or try and figure out the alarm clock. In addition, you can remind yourself: of important events, to take medication or even to escape from a boring date or meeting. Best of all it's FREE and easy to use and it works with any phone in the U.S. and Canada. TIP: I also use my cell phone alarm as a backup.
