Imagine spending two of your teenaged years living baseball madness every day, being asked to run errands that snag you great tips, and driving a player's Cobra because you're a bat boy for the Yankees. While McGough's stories vary from the expected to the compelling, his audio presentation chokes. He reads his own work in a one-dimensional voice that lacks any performance style, offers no vocal characterizations, and truly fails to enhance his own text. One can only imagine how gripping these adventures might have sounded read by a professional narrator. For true Yankee fans, this audio presentation strikes out.
