Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
According to "Voice of the Astros" Milo Hamilton, it's plain and simple: "Baseball is a radio game." Milo has backed up that belief with over half a century of service as a major league broadcaster. Now a member of three Hall of Fames (including the one at Cooperstown), he reflects on the highlights of his astonishing career, including 11 no-hitters and Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run.
