Publisher's Summary

Baseball's Golden Age comes alive through the voices of men who were there. Selected from the original tapes on which Lawrence S. Ritter based his classic book of baseball history, The Glory of Their Times is a collection of wonderful tales that paint a vivid and evocative picture of a lively young America and the giants who starred on her ballfields, legends like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Walter Johnson, and many others. From the wildly hilarious to the achingly poignant, these stories tell it like it really was.

A Game Winning, Grand Slam!!!

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.

Wow!

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!
