Sports Broadcaster Ann Ligouri's skill as an interviewer is evident in this audio as she elicits success stories, failures, famous moments, and political views from baseball star Goose Gossage. Baseball fans will love this audiobook version of the famous interviews reflective of Gossage's 22-year career. Ligouri's cheeful voice and thoughtful questions are met with modesty by Gossage, along with an obvious love of the game. The interviews are compiled here with clips of famous games and of cheering crowds, creating an atmosphere of immediacy and excitement.
Between 1972 and 1994, Gossage played 22 seasons for nine different teams, spending his best years with the New York Yankees and San Diego Padres. His wild facial hair and a gruff demeanor only added to the intimidation of his blistering fastball. By the end of the 1987 season he trailed only Rollie Fingers in major league history in career saves. His eight All-Star selections as a reliever were a record until recently, and Goose Gossage was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008.
Gossage is interviewed here by Ann Liguori, award-winning luminary in sports broadcasting with a celebrated career that spans two decades. Liguori has interviewed some of the most legendary sports personalities, drawing out their success stories, their opinions on a variety of issues, and their love of the game.
