Summer is baseball season — and road trip season. Just in time for Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City, we’ll take a state-by-state tour of the country’s best and worst major league stadiums with a couple of fans who’ve visited them all.

From L.A. to Boston, every park is reviewed for seating, views, hot dogs, décor, nearby watering holes and attractions. Folklore, stats and trivia about each venue, along with tips for nabbing the best seats or avoiding indigestion, are detailed in the second edition of "The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip: A Fan’s Guide to Major League Stadiums."

Whether you’re traveling by Chevrolet or La-Z-Boy, this guide is a must for the serious fanboy or fangirl.

How many stadiums have you been to? Which are your favorites? How does our own Dodger Stadium stack up to spanking-new venues like Miami’s Marlins Ballpark?
