Contemporary Culture • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Kahn's combination memoir and profile of the early '50s Brooklyn Dodgers is considered one of the greatest sports books ever—not just about baseball, but all sports. As a young newspaper reporter, he covered a team of great players whom he saw as articulate individuals. He weaves players' on-field stories while detailing the writer's off-field life growing up. Twenty years later, he revisits the players in their post-playing lives, lending an ear to their reminiscences. Phil Gigante is the perfect voice to capture this band of characters: the pioneer Jackie Robinson, gentlemanly Carl Erskine, a bitter Carl Furillo, and others. His unlimited accents and drawls are his forte. Kahn and Gigante are perfect for this classic—a must-listen for fans. M.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
