Audible Editor Reviews

When the original Yankee stadium closed in 2008, it inspired an intense wave of emotional reaction, a microcosm of which is captured in Lasting Yankee Stadium Memories compiled by BronxBanterBlog.com editor Alex Belth. Veteran voice actor Gregory Gorton adeptly captures the wide range of passionate reaction from the many journalists and personalities who contributed to this collection, including NBC's Bob Costas, whose allegiance to Mickey Mantle's stadium is touching under Gorton's narration, and New York Post writer's Mike Vaccaro's poetic account, which is recounted with wide-eyed wonder. Sure to bring a smile to listeners who love and remember the old stadium, Lasting Yankee Stadium Memories allows a legendary American sports venue to live on through story.
