When you look for chores to do that will allow you to listen to a particular audiobook, you know that title has you hooked. The compelling and charming story of a small-town high school baseball team in 1971 combined with an able and engaging narrator is an unbeatable combination. Mike Chamberlain has an easy tone, and he varies his pitch and pace effectively to match the material. A few times he alters his voice for direct quotes from figures in the book but not so often that it becomes a distraction. The author is a SPORTS ILLUSTRATED writer, and the book comes across like a long, well-written magazine piece, with a narrative that flows and enough detail to keep listeners engaged. R.C.G.
