OUT OF MY LEAGUE The Classic Hilarious Account of an Amateur's Ordeal in Professional Baseball

by | Read by Robert Fass

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Writer George Plimpton’s experience pitching against Major Leaguers comes alive in this first-person account from the mound. Narrator Robert Fass gives Plimpton an ever-so-light New England, by way of Exeter Academy, accent, a solid reminder of the late author. In 1958, Plimpton—on assignment for SPORTS ILLUSTRATED—set out to face the National and American Leagues’ batting lineups, with the magazine putting up $1,000 to the team that fared better against Plimpton. Fass does a great job throughout, and he especially shines when Plimpton details the inner voice equally guiding and cajoling him—a voice the writer himself finds ironic since it is delivered in a Southern accent. This wonderful, honest, humorous listen draws on Fass’s high-quality narration. M.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
