Who are these Two Guys?

Dave Pasternak and Doug Cohn (known to virtually everyone as "DC") met when both were students at the University of Maryland in the 1970s. We discovered a mutual love of baseball and began attending games together in Baltimore, beginning with Game 7 of the 1979 World Series. Despite DC's irrational love of the New York Yankees, we became fast friends. In 1990 we began the Two Guys & a Map trips on which we travel to different ballparks around North America. The name Two Guys & a Map was coined on our 1991 trip.

After serving a six year term as the Honorable Douglas Cohn, a Family Court Judge of the State of Vermont, DC is now practicing family law. In 2005, DC relocated from Montpelier, Vermont, to the Washington DC area where he now lives with his wife Vicki and her daughter Sarah. He has three kids, Dan, Aliyah and Tracy and two grandchildren, Emma and Branaman.

Dave is a systems analyst, living in Springfield, VA with his wife Bobbi and their dog Henry. After many years of mourning the loss of his childhood heroes, the Washington Senators, Dave was thrilled with the return of baseball to the city of Washington in 2005.

That's DC on the left and Dave on the right during our 2016 trip.

We've seen a lot of the country on these trips - our Two Guys travels have taken us to games in 31 different states (Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin) as well as one Canadian province (Ontario) and the District of Columbia.

In addition, we have traveled through 12 other states (Arkansas, Delaware, Kansas, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming) to get to and from the games.

We've seen games in the oldest parks (including the original Comiskey Park, Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, Tiger Stadium, all of which were opened before 1920) and the newest. We've been to Major League Baseball games and to the lower levels of the minor leagues. We've been in stadiums with huge crowds, over 40,000 people in many cases and we've been to games with much smaller attendance - once we were part of a "crowd" of 86 fans. By the end of the 2008 season we had seen at least one game in every Major League ballpark. We retained that distinction by visiting new ones as they opened in 2009, 2010 and 2012. We slacked off by missing the opening of the Braves new home in 2017 but caught up during the 2018 season.

In addition to the organized Two Guys trips, we've seen games together in Memorial Stadium and Camden Yards (both in Baltimore), RFK Stadium and Nationals Park (both in Washington D.C.), both Yankee Stadiums (New York), Veterans Stadium (Philadelphia), Wrigley Field (Chicago) as well as minor league games in Woodbridge, VA and Waldorf, MD.

Every once in a while we go to games with other people: DC has been to Candlestick Park (San Francisco) and Olympic Stadium (Montreal). Dave has seen games in the old Busch Stadium (St. Louis), Exhibition Stadium (Toronto) and Qualcom Stadium (San Diego).

By the end of our most recent trip, The 2018 Ring Around The Appalachians Tour, on Two Guys trips alone we had seen 87 games in 62 different ballparks. For a complete list of parks we have visited, both on and off Two Guys trips, check out our Two Guys and a Map Ballpark Scorecard.

There are other things which enrich our lives besides baseball. This site is dedicated with much love to the memory of these Two Guys and a Map Hall of Famers

Dave's Uncle Bernard - a terrific guy, who loved baseball (especially the Cardinals) as much as anyone we ever met.

Dave's dad was never directly involved in a Two Guys trip but anyone who knew him would tell you that, by any measure, he was a true Hall of Famer.

Dave's father-in-law - when you marry, your spouse's family is part of the deal. Dave really lucked out with his.

DC's parents - Abe was a man who brought a smile to everyone's face; who couldn't walk ten feet down the street without talking to someone he knew; the glue that holds the family together."Holy Mackerel!"

Debbie taught DC to love the game of baseball (although, as a fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers and later the New York Mets, she was terribly distressed by his allegiance to the Yankees.)

And to a group of great companions - Levi Pasternak, Toni Pasternak, Sam Pasternak, Bonnie Pasternak, Lucy Pasternak, and Rover Cohn

We miss all of them every day.
