Dodger Dogs to Fenway Franks: And All the Wieners In Between is a 1988 bestselling book by author Bob Wood. In 1985, the then-28-year-old Wood was a high-school history teacher in Seattle, Washington when he took a trip to all 26 Major League Baseball stadiums in one summer. Wood decided to assign a letter grade in each of eight categories and rank the stadiums from best to worst. Dodger Stadium and Royals Stadium tied for first while the Astrodome and Exhibition Stadium would finish as the two worst. To save money he would often sleep at Kampgrounds of America or Motel 6. Wood additionally sold his Pinto and bought a 1985 Toyota Tercel for its good fuel mileage and reliability. The book was published in 1988 by McGraw-Hill and instantly became a favorite amongst baseball fans. Even many non-baseball fans enjoyed the road trip odyssey for its human interest stories. A story by James Crabtree about the 20th anniversary of Dodger Dogs to Fenway Franks was published Baseball Musings on June 30, 2008.
The following is the schedule and box scores from each game of Wood's trip. The August 1, 1985 game in Yankee Stadium appears to be an error. Wood in the book claims to have attended a game between the Yankees and White Sox on that date in Yankee Stadium. However, New York was actually in Cleveland that day. The Yankees did play the White Sox in Yankee Stadium on August 2.
