PLAYING THROUGH THE PAIN Ken Caminiti and the Steroids Confession That Changed Baseball Forever

by | Read by Tom Parks

Biography & Memoir • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Ken Caminiti was among the first of baseball's superstars to be tainted by steroids, and his struggles with substance abuse went much deeper than performance-enhancing drugs. Tom Parks's narration of Caminiti's tragic story is languid, almost sleepy, a style that emphasizes the fact that the text is longer than it needs to be. At times, the research is not just exhaustive, but exhausting. Journalist Dan Good's decades of sleuthing have turned up many previously unknown aspects of Caminiti's story, including childhood abuse, and it's clear that he deserved the trust he earned from the long list of sources he interviewed. Boosting the playback speed on Parks's narration will enhance this performance. D.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
