THE HALL A Celebration of Baseball's Greats: In Stories and Images, the Complete Roster of Inductees

by | Read by Pete Larkin, Dale Turner, Nick Omana, Mark Comstock, et al.

Contemporary Culture • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

For years, baseball’s venerable Hall of Fame has issued a postcard on each inductee. Now, they come to life in brief audio vignettes, a smart approach for listeners who want to learn about the men enshrined. The narrators read as if they’re telling a story rather than lecturing—and really, that’s what these are: condensed, well-researched stories that add personality to the sport’s greats. Each entry is several minutes long—the perfect length for a well-read overview. Actual players give longer bios; one of my favorites is Carlton Fisk, a catcher who played the game for 24 seasons, who lends voice, and character, to the sketch of the hard-nosed competitor he was.
