BABE The Legend Comes to Life

by | Read by Tom Parker

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1974

This book does far more than tell the facts and myths of Babe Ruth’s life. It chronicles a time when baseball was played only on grass and a western road trip for East Coast teams meant a train ride to St. Louis. Although Tom Parker is probably not a baseball fan--I’m guessing from a few minor pronunciation gaffs and misreadings of stats--he does a fine job bringing the Babe to life. His tenor voice is well suited for the mostly male cast. His pacing and continuity are good on this long program. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
