    "Good story despite poor reading"
    What did you love best about Stranger to the Game?

    Having read "From Ghetto to Glory" (which needs to be an audiobook as well) was good to hear Gibson's stories from '68 and beyond.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stranger to the Game?

    Particularly enjoyed Gibson recalling his no-hitter.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Fred Berman’s performances?

    Terrible reading from Fred Berman who clearly knows nothing about baseball and does not miss an opportunity to mispronounce a name.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite poor reading is an interesting story from one of baseball's all time greats.
