STAN MUSIAL An American Life

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Scott Brick

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Vecsey’s biography of baseball great Stan Musial, who played 22 seasons for the St. Louis Cardinals, is superbly performed by Scott Brick. The story begins at the low point of Musial’s life—when fans omitted him from the list of the top 25 baseball players of the twentieth century. Not merely an homage to his incredible career, the work quickly transforms into a chronicle of Musial’s life and a tribute to the person he is—a vastly underrated player and a true gentleman. Brick delivers another classic presentation, capturing every aspect of a man known as much for his warmth and caring as for his baseball skills. While this is a “baseball book”—with Vecsey at the typewriter and Brick at the mike, it will appeal to all. D.J.S.
