Since they both loved baseball, Todd reasoned, why not plan a journey that would carry them to each and every Major League stadium in the country—all 30 of them—within the span of a month? It would require planning, stamina, and sense of humor, but the result would be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.Major League Anxiety is the story of their journey, unfolding as it happened, one game at a time. In an attempt to help Brigham face his fears, Todd literally dragged his brother back and forth across North America while they did their part to assail the stigma surrounding mental illness. The trip was a rollercoaster ride for both of them, replete with night drives, early-morning flights, packing and unpacking, and encounters with a wide range of good Samaritans—including some illustrious ballplayers—who provided help and inspiration along the way. And of course, there are the games: routs, nailbiters, and everything in-between, rendered through the eyes of a couple of diehard fans.By the last game and the last enjoyable page of Major League Anxiety, one thing is abundantly clear: when everything controllable seems out of control but you press ahead regardless, the result is an unforgettable and life-changing experience that neither the two brothers nor readers will ever forget.
