Baseball fans have all heard stories of the game’s greatest moments. But this collection of radio calls—classic broadcasting from different eras—is a must-listen. Sportscaster Bob Costas is his usual steady self as he introduces these timeless broadcasting snippets. Some are famous—such as Don Larsen’s perfect World Series game in 1956 and Bobby Thomson’s shot heard ‘round the world in 1951—while others are trivial but engaging moments from various periods of time. In the static-free digital world of today, it’s refreshing to hear some authentic roughness as Red Barber, Mel Allen, and others describe exciting moments of baseball lore. Many of these unfiltered sounds come from a time before television, when radio delivered immediately and newspapers were devoured hot off the presses.
