56 Joe Dimaggio and the Last Magic Number in Sports

by | Read by Kevin T. Collins

Biography & Memoir • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak with the New York Yankees in 1941 still stands as one of the greatest achievements in sports. Kennedy's account of "Joltin' Joe's" marvelous feat is filled with entertaining anecdotes that are delivered with a little too much enthusiasm by narrator Kevin T. Collins. His narration is well paced, but it would have been stronger without the melodramatic phrasing and awkward accents. Kennedy does a fine job evoking the spirit of what was a remarkable year in wartime America and in a memorable baseball season. He rounds out the story with a discussion about the statistical likelihood that DiMaggio's record will ever be eclipsed. D.B. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
