The sounds of city streets, jazz music, and clattering tableware transport the listener to a modest Bronx kitchen in 1927, where 10-year-old George Alexander receives the birthday present of his dreams--a ticket to see the New York Yankees. Jason Alexander ("Seinfeld"), with his well-known accent, enthusiasm, and love of baseball, is the perfect narrator, playing up George's jubilation and then his outrage as he learns he must wear a Boston Red Sox jersey to the game. The sounds of catcalls from neighborhood boys add to his misery as he trudges to the ballpark. At the game, however, George and listeners are uplifted by the sounds of baseball--the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, and, finally, the cavernous voice of George's idol, Babe Ruth. L.T.
