This is by far the most impressive Baseball audio book that I have ever listened to. The words came to life and transported me back to a time when Baseball was such a huge part of the American life.

I have owned the book for many years and have long considered it one of the BEST. This is the story of a guy who went around in the 60's and made tape recorded interviews with the old ballplayers of 1900s to the 1920s. The Audible book is not narrated by a dramatic actor, but is the original recordings of those old ballplayers. They say what Babe Ruth was like when he first came up, talk about Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and Walter Johnson. Probalby the best book in the audible library!

A wonderful jewel of a narrative made particularly special because it is told by the actual men who experienced the early days of organised baseball and the famous and infamous characters they played with and against. There is something very special about their personalities and the way they speak that places the listener right back to these now legendary days of baseball lore. It's travelling back and being placed right there amongst them.
