Miley and Turbow have carefully selected an abundance of highlights for Baseball Forever! that is sure to inform, entertain, and appeal to anybody nostalgic for baseball’s storied history.

    "Old Radio Baseball"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This audiobook is best for someone who likes baseball history and baseball radio.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Baseball Forever!?

    It was great listening to Carl Hubbel striking out five Hall of Famers. It was such a great experience listening to the radio call of Babe Ruth at bat; it wasn't a still photo, it wasn't black and white film--it was radio, as it happened.


    What does Bob Costas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bob Costas is great because he is an icon of baseball broadcasting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When radio was the next-best thing to being there.


    Any additional comments?

    For those who love baseball, it's not about the highlights--exclusively. It's about nine innings of ground balls, fly balls, a few hits, a few strikeouts, strategy, ups, downs, winning and losing, and playing again tomorrow.
