THE TAO OF THE BACKUP CATCHER Playing Baseball for the Love of the Game

by | Read by Justin Price, Tim Brown

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This audiobook takes a dramatic approach to the often unsung role of baseball's backup catchers, who may play only a few innings a week--or not at all. Narrator Justin Price gives them the emotion and drama they deserve, in part by slightly altering his voice for quotes. His delivery is a great example of how a narrator can use technique to capture the writing. Brown and Kratz--writer and catcher, respectively--have teamed up to reveal to baseball fans the challenges these journeymen go through day in and day out. It's tough to imagine any other approach for these stories. Listeners will enjoy--and gain new respect for--players who are rarely in the limelight.
