EMPERORS AND IDIOTS The Hundred Year Rivalry Between the Yankees and Red Sox, from the Very Beginning to the End of the Curse

by | Read by Richmond Hoxie

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

If you missed the epochal baseball upset of 2004--the Boston Red Sox triumphing over the New York Yankees in the race to the World Series--you must have been on hiatus from civilization. But even if you were present for the historic event, this audiobook will unveil little-known facts about the century-long rivalry of the Yankees and the Red Sox. Beginning with the earliest years of this battle, Vaccaro, through the warm and witty voicing of Richmond Hoxie, spins a melodramatic baseball story that spares no one in the cast of players. A satisfying blend of historical fact, direct quotes of important figures, tantalizing rumor, funny asides, and colorful characters, this recording will entertain even those who are not baseball aficionados with its personable presence.
