RICKEY The Life and Legend of an American Original

by | Read by JD Jackson

Biography & Memoir • 18.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

JD Jackson is always a joy to listen to and a fine choice for this audiobook on the enigmatic Rickey Henderson, whose professional baseball career spanned more than 20 years. Veteran sports writer Howard Bryant handles Henderson fairly--revealing the greatness of the Hall of Famer who is the game's all-time runs and stolen-base leader. But he was a mercurial ballplayer prone to remain aloof from teammates and others. Jackson maintains a pleasant tone and clear diction. He deepens his voice just a bit when quoting Henderson, a technique that works because it makes him stand out from others. Jackson's narration treats Henderson as fairly as Bryant's research and writing do. M.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
