    For several decades, the Baltimore Orioles were the envy of every Major League Baseball team. Now fans of this indomitable team can walk into the stadium and onto the field with Louis Berney’s newly revised edition of Tales from the Baltimore Orioles Dugout. Individually, these stories are funny, poignant, and eccentric. Collectively, they offer a portrait of a team that is as much a family and a community treasure as it is a professional sports organization. A must-have for any Orioles fan.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    As a longtime Orioles fan, it was nice listening to information about the team and stories told by some of the players over the years. However, the narration of this book leaves a lot to be desired.

    The narrator never changes his tone throughout the book, so it's hard to tell where the author's text ends and the players' interviews begin. Unless it's something obvious, it is left to the listener to figure out whether they are listening to a quote or just information about the team, games and players.

    I was also disappointed that the narrator never bothered to learn how to properly pronounce players' names before recording this audiobook. Players like Jim Gentile, Felix Pie and Nick Markakis' names are all mispronounced, along with other players. You'd think more effort would have been put into preparation for something like this well before recording took place.

    Apart from some aspects of the narration, this was still a nice little audiobook for anyone wanting to revisit the highs and lows of Baltimore Orioles history. If you can get past some of the above, it's worth a listen.
