    Excellent History of Baseball Broadcasters

    My wife surprised me by taking me to the Whitemarsh, Md. Barnes and Noble to meet Ted Patterson who was conducting a book signing of The Golden Voices of Baseball. Mr. Patterson has always been one of my favorite 'analysts' on the local Baltimore sports scene and was a pleasure to meet in person. His offering, The Golden Voices of Baseball is a thorough accounting of the men who brought baseball into your home through their colorful depiction of the game as it was played. The book also contains 2 cds full of interviews and actual play by play broadcasts by the men featured in the book. I grew up on Chuck Thompson broadcasts of Baltimore Orioles and Colts' games so this book brought back some fond memories. If you still sit fixated at the radio as the game is broadcast or drive about town listening to the game - you will find great enjoyment in this book. Well done!

    Relive the Memories of the Sportscasters

    I am privileged and honored to write a review for my good friend, Ted Patterson, the author of THE GOLDEN VOICES OF BASEBALL. This book actually is based on Ted's 1968 thesis, entitled THE GOLDEN VOICES OF SPORT at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. GOLDEN VOICES takes you back into history where we meet up with pioneer Harold Arlin who was a neighbor of Ted's in Mansfield, Ohio, and who obviously had a great influence on his career. We meet other greats such as Red Barber, Waite Hoyt, and Dick Bray who were all announcers for the Cincinnati Reds. With the CD capability, you can actually hear the interviews that Ted made with these legends in the late sixties, which are now a part of sport's history. Ted did the last interview with Harry Wismer, who died in Port Huron, Michigan a few months after the interview in 1967. Curt Gowdy, a personal friend of Patterson's, has written the foreword for the book and CD. Anyone interested in the history of sports and sportscasting would love this book for his/her library.
