Publisher's Summary

This book recounts the slugger's life before, during, and after his headline season of 1961, when the taciturn North Dakota native topped Babe Ruth's all-time record by hitting 61 homers. From his youth as a star high-school athlete and American Legion baseball player, Maris went on to big-time sports with the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Athletics, New York Yankees, and St. Louis Cardinals. Author Rosenfeld argues that Maris' treatment by the press was both shabby and tragic, and that his Midwestern modesty and strength, his need for privacy, and his straightforward bluntness were often wrongly interpreted as arrogance and sullenness - a factor that led many to downplay his claim on the record books.

Terrible audio

I cannot even listen to this due to the terrible audio quality. It sounds automated and choppy like it is being read by a text to speech recognition software. STAY AWAY!

Buyers Beware

It's almost impossible to listen, the narrators voice sounds like a computerized voice, awful.
