Overview


Stories from the National Public Radio archives honor America's national pastime.

Stories so compelling you'll stay in your car to hear them through—even if you're sitting in your own driveway. Peabody-winning Talk of the Nation host Neal Conan presents tales about the big leagues and the little, the fans in the stands, the players, the history, and the lore.

Highlights include commentaries from some of the game's most recognized authorities, a look back at some of baseball's most important figures (Jackie Robinson, Joltin' Joe DiMaggio), and colorful segments about the game's unexpected delights, from the Hidden Ball Trick to the "All You Can Eat" option at Dodger Stadium.

    Pretty good

    This was an entertaining CD but not every subject held my interest to the same degree. I very much enjoyed the interview with the woman who played ball in the Negro Leagues. Some of the others segments were less interesting to me personally, but to each his own.
