    Baseball's Golden Age comes alive through the voices of men who were there. Selected from the original tapes on which Lawrence S. Ritter based his classic book of baseball history, The Glory of Their Times is a collection of wonderful tales that paint a vivid and evocative picture of a lively young America and the giants who starred on her ballfields, legends like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Walter Johnson, and many others.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book, especially to my baseball friends, which most are. Being entertained for hours by former ballplayers recounting their glory days brought much joy. Starting with the reading of Ball Four in high school, the storytelling ability of former ballplayers continues to amaze me. That explains books on, or by, Lou, Babe, Stan, Willie, Sandy, Yogi, and Roberto lining my shelves. However, unlike Ball Four and most of the others, this book needs to be heard. The voices make the book come alive and place you right on the fields and in the dugouts.


    What other book might you compare The Glory of Their Times to and why?

    Ball Four by Jim Bouton


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The stories were told by former MLB players. You cannot beat that for authenticity.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I downloaded this book the day my brother and I drove to Cooperstown, New York to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time in our 50+ years of life. The most moving part of the book came after reaching the Hall when names of the players whose stories we just heard came to life. Players we never knew before hearing the stories in this book appeared before our eyes in the halls of the Hall. Priceless!
