What did you love best about The Old Ball Game?
I love hearing about the people when baseball was young. There wasn't much in this book that hasn't been told before, but it's a great book if you are starting to discover the early history of the game.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Christy Mathewson - the true all-American boy. During a time when the game was filled with liars and cheats, he maintained his integrity and helped raise the standards of the game
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Frank Deford?
Anyone who can pronounce the main character's name properly. I've always heard it as Matthew-Son, and it was annoying to hear him referred to as Matha-Son for the entire book. Probably nit-picking - sorry to any east coasters who take offense.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No - it was fine to be broken up over a few days.
