Focusing on a St. Louis Cardinals-Chicago Cubs World Series, 3 NIGHTS IN AUGUST explores the world of baseball through the eyes of Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa. Buzz Bissinger depicts the intensity of La Russa's responsibilities, ranging from the decision to retaliate when a batter is hit by a pitch to dealing with the unexpected death of pitcher Darryl Kile. Jeffrey Nordling's narration is perfect. His voice expresses La Russa's frustration when a pitcher doesn't listen or a talented hitter lacks competitive spirit. Nordling projects the suspense of a close game in a pivotal series and infuses the story of Kile's death with grace and gravity. Ballpark organ music adds atmosphere to this outstanding production.
