Baseball by Geoffrey C. Ward

4 cassettes / 4 hours
Read by Ken Burns
The companion AudioBook to Ken Burnss magnificent PBS Television Series
The authors of the acclaimed and history-making bestseller The Civil War now turn to another defining American phenomenon. Their subject is Baseball.
During eight months of the year, it is played professionally every day; all year round, amateurs play it, watch it, and dream about it. Baseball produces remarkable Americans: it seizes hold of ordinary people and shapes them into something we must regard with awe.
Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Joe DiMaggio . . . truly gifted human beings acting out universal fantasies that, for whatever reason, are most perfectly expressed on a baseball field.
All this and more rings through Ward and Burnss moving, crowded, fascinating history of the game - a history that goes beyond stolen bases, triple plays, and home runs to demonstrate how baseball has been influenced by, and has in turn influenced our national life: politics, race, labor, big business, advertising, and social custom.
The audio covers every milestone of the game: from the rules drawn up in 1845 by Alexander Cartwright to the founding of the Brotherhood of Professional Base Ball Players in 1885, from the 1924 Negro World Series through Jack Roosevelt Robinsons major-league debut in 1947, and Nolan Ryans seventh and last no-hitter in 1991.
Monumental, affecting, informative, and entertaining - Baseball is an audio that speaks to all Americans.
