Baseball fans will enjoy this collection of recent NPR stories about America's pastime. The set includes interviews with such players as Ted Williams, Roberto Clemente, Yogi Berra, and Jackie Robinson, as well as pieces on a wide range of topics, including Negro baseball, corporate influence on the game, baseball statistics, steroids, and other forms of cheating. They're presented by some of NPR's best reporters--Scott Simon, Melissa Block, Bob Edwards, Robert Siegel, and Frank Deford, among others. Are they all so gripping that we wouldn't be able to leave the car mid-story? Who knows? One person's driveway moment may be another's "ho-hum." But they're all listenable, and many are a real pleasure. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
