THE NEW YORK GAME Baseball and the Rise of a New City

by | Read by L.J. Ganser

History • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

L.J. Ganser narrates this wonderful historical look at the rise of baseball in New York City with his usual interested style. You can tell when Ganser is reading a quotation, but he never imposes a campy tone or a vocal imitation. He sounds involved without being overly animated as he delivers the narrative, which starts in the nineteenth century and moves through well-researched colorful anecdotes of players and managers of the day. Ganser helps carry the material through the turn of the century, aptly delivering the author's fascinating stories about John J. McGraw, Christy Mathewson, Hal Chase, and others. When the book ends in the late 1940s, both Baker's writing and Ganser's narration leave listeners wanting more. M.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
