I am pleased to inform the ballpark chasers that my upcoming novel 'THE FASTEST 30 BALLGAMES"
will be available in the next 3-4 months--which certainly before next season. This book will be available at www.authorhouse.com-and
will also be available from Barnes/Noble and Amazon. Now I just have to complete it.
The book will contain.
-My 3 different record attempts at "FASTEST TO SEE ALL 30 MLB HOME TEAMS IN LEAST AMOUNT OF DAYS'-it will chronicle each attempt while talking about the given baseball parks. In all 33 ballparks will be written about--with the 2 New York teams and Minnesota each opening up new parks in 2009 and 2010. With much attention to physical appearance, fan traditions and participation etc..
-A before and after look at each record and how I was able to accomplish a new world record. With that there wlll be many money/time saving and secret tips I discovered while putting the trips together.
-CHASER GUIDES from each ballpark(with a bit more added to each city in terms of flight planning/airport information and transportation methods).- but weighted more in his category will be the exact chaser guides written in by Craig.
******(Craig's name will also be credited as a co-author in the novel--as will Ken Lee who wrote my write-ups for the 2009 record breaking achievement.)
-With the site's help here it should be an extension of what Craig's awesome idea to come up with 'BALLPARK CHASERS has meant to all the members--who inturn have done a fantastic job in sharing their thoughts, stories, tips and suggestions to help enhance the experience of being a 'BALLPARK CHASER'.
-10 pictures that I am going to submit--I am only using 5-6 for myself and am looking to add 4-5 from some other stream. Any suggestions?
-The entire process of attempting and then verifying a "GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORD CLAIM."
-A great deal of mentioning about ballparkchasers.com as I will be promoting this site often while marketing this book.
-I am going to dedicate a chapter for stories from the people in here about their 'ballpark experiences.' Anybody who is interested can send me a message to find out more
-it will not contain 'BALLPARK RANKINGS' as previously said. It is my belief that it would take away from what the novel should be about.
Any thoughts, idea or suggestions towards the impending or welcomed and encouraged. Just send me a note quick as this thing is really going to take off.
FOR THOSE who may have not seen my work as a writer I encourage you to have a quick look at my material--just Google the name HUGH HAWKINS and the books 'LEAPING DEATH" OR "THE ROOKIE BOOKIE" to see a preview of my writing.
