    Joe Torre is the most successful and most respected baseball manager of the modern era, steering the Yankees to six American League pennants and four World Series championships. When he left the team in 2007, it was front-page news around the country. Famously diplomatic during his tenure with the Yankees, Torre finally speaks out about what it was like building and managing the dynasty during those 12 glorious and tumultuous years.

    Lynn says: "Great listen"
    "Not just for Yankees fans."
    Overall

    I've been looking for a baseball related audiobook so I decided to give this one a try. Even though I'm a Cubs fan, I always liked Joe Torre and figured this might be interesting. I was right. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the behind the scenes of a Major League Baseball team. The chapter on steroids is a real eye opener.

    The time is the early 80s. The characters go to the same schools and eat at the same restaurants. Their voices enfold us as seamlessly as those of DJs heard over a car radio. They have sex with the same boys and girls and buy from the same dealers. In short, they are connected in the only way people can be in that city.

    Fine collection of early 80's stories from Ellis. I'm really glad that both a male and a female narrator were used to divide up the different chapters (each one is told in first person). Therese Plummer in particular, is a real talent.
