1985 brought us one of Jimmy’s most unique tours. While Jimmy still played the normal summer stops, he also played several minor league baseball stadiums after games. Typically, one of these shows lasted about an hour and featured Jimmy and the entire band. Other notable stops include an appearance at the first annual Farm Aid.
