To hear these interviews with these men of baseball, is really enlightening. I grew up watching some of these guys and it truly amazes me to hear how they feel about certain things on and off the field from way back when until the present. Especially guys like Mick and Pete Rose, they hold nothing back it seams. I could listen to more!

Not really baseball stories.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I thought this would be a book of baseball stories. There were a few, but it was more of a free ranging discussion. If you want to hear how Phil Rizzuto met his wife, how Duke Snider got in trouble with the IRS, how Johnny Bench likes to play golf, to hear about how Phil Niekro got signed, hear about Barry and Bobby Bonds relationship from both sides, how Whitey Ford didn't know Mickey Mantle had a drinking problem, how Ted Williams and his son got closer after his stroke, this is the audiobook for you.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I will try 'Great Baseball Stories' by Lee Gutkind, et al.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narration was fine. It was the audio of an interview show.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
