PLAY BALL!

by | Read by Charley Steiner, Hank Aaron, et Al.

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

It's not every day you find Hammerin' Hank Aaron and Philip Roth in the same place. But you will in this unique compendium on America's pastime, along with a warm and nostalgic pastiche of writers and voices spanning a variety of topics: prejudice and corruption in professional ball, the mysteries of the diamond, split-finger fastballs, on-and-off-field heroism and high jinks. Grover Gardner warmly intones the commentary alongside aging sportswriters and boys of both summer and October. A must for any fan of the game, but particularly those with a sense of history. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
