Hitting every Major League ballpark is a worthy but elusive goal

Traveling to every Major League ballpark has a certain romance, doesn’t it? At least for a subset of us. It’s a little corny, yes. And patriotic, too. We’re watching the national pastime and exploring America at the same time. Visit all 30 ballparks and you’ve seen much of the United States: up and down both coasts, across the south and the north, through the vast middle. (And, with enough ballpark food and drink, adding to your own vast middle.) After getting to two stadiums last month, I’ve be...

Netflix’s Fear Street movie trilogy, based on the young adult novels by R.L. Stine, are an exciting excercise in telling a compelling story through three shorter stories.
