FOREVER BLUE The True Story of Walter O'Malley, Baseball's Most Controversial Owner, and the Dodgers of Brooklyn and Los Angeles

by | Read by Phil Gigante

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Michael D'Antonio's take on Dodgers boss Walter O'Malley, the man long reviled in Brooklyn for moving their beloved team to Los Angeles, is mostly admiring. Phil Gigante narrates O'Malley's biography with a deep, clear voice reminiscent of a baseball announcer, adding all the touches—including voices for the principal figures—to make it a dramatic story. While O'Malley's life and the cross-country move are the focus, D'Antonio also covers the Dodgers' history, including the groundbreaking debut of African-American player Jackie Robinson; life and politics in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles; and how the changing times have affected the game. The chance to relive bygone days of baseball will draw fans of any team. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
