Summer By Rail: 19 games, 22 cities, 37 days, 6,100 miles

A Fan's 19-Stadium/ 37-Day Baseball Journey Through America Using Public Transportation

“Summer By Rail” is perhaps the greatest internship in America. Started in 2016, each summer the Rail Passengers Association sends its paid correspondent on a month-long cross-country trip by train to see America. On their journey, the correspondents report on the rail passenger network from inside the train. They talk with passengers about how they use transportation to work, live and play. They meet with mayors and government officials in big cities and small towns on planning issues. And, they sample the local food, drinks, entertainment and recreation that is available through the passenger rail network.

In 2018, Jacob Wallace will focus on one of the most American experiences: baseball. His trip will take him to major and minor league parks in cities and towns where he will see the sights and sounds of summer and meet players, fans and passengers from Miami to Seattle.
