THE CHURCH OF BASEBALL The Making of Bull Durham: Home Runs, Bad Calls, Crazy Fights, Big Swings, and a Hit

by | Read by Ron Shelton

Contemporary Culture • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

To many enthusiasts of sports movies, BULL DURHAM is one of the best baseball films ever. Written and directed by a former minor league ballplayer, it captures a lot--on the field and off. Ron Shelton narrates his own book about the making of the movie in a comfortable way. He's not a polished narrator, but his style is enjoyable. As he lays out plot points, behind-the-scenes moments, and character development, listeners can sense his enthusiasm about a film that clearly has resonated with fans over the years. When describing this meeting or that, the listener can feel his excitement, annoyance, or gleefulness. He doesn't imitate assorted stars and characters, a choice that gives this audiobook more authenticity. A great listen about a classic movie.
