Tales from the St. Louis Cardinals Dugout: A Collection of the Greatest Cardinals Stories Ever Told | [Bob Forsh, Tom Wheatley]

Tales from the St. Louis Cardinals Dugout: A Collection of the Greatest Cardinals Stories Ever Told

Offering listeners more than just a sneak peek into the dugout, Bob Forsch's Tales from the Cardinals Dugout takes fans into the clubhouse, out to the bullpen, onto the mound, up to the batter's box, around the base paths, along for the ride to spring training, and maybe even on a fishing trip or two in this tribute to the long and storied tradition of St. Louis Cardinals baseball. In his own witty style, Bo Forsch, known to many as "Forschie" during his playing days, has drawn from his exciting history with the Cardinals to bring fans stories that are laugh-out-loud funny.

Audible Editor Reviews

The view from the pitcher's mound is sweeping, as proven by Cardinals pitcher Bob Forsch's biographical Tales from the St. Louis Cardinals Dugout. Voice performer Michael Sherer's down-to-earth narration adds extra charm to Forsch's insider stories of his years with the team, which include tales of people like George Kissell, Joe Cunningham, Lou Brock, and Bruce Sutter, as well as musings on the art of base-stealing. Offering plenty of clever insights on the life of a pitcher, Tales from the St. Louis Cardinals Dugout is a thoroughly enjoyable listen for fans of St. Louis's team.

Publisher's Summary

Offering listeners more than just a sneak peek into the dugout, Bob Forsch's Tales from the Cardinals Dugout takes fans into the clubhouse, out to the bullpen, onto the mound, up to the batter's box, around the base paths, along for the ride to spring training, and maybe even on a fishing trip or two in this tribute to the long and storied tradition of St. Louis Cardinals baseball. In his own witty style, Bo Forsch, known to many as "Forschie" during his playing days, has drawn from his exciting history with the Cardinals to bring fans stories that are laugh-out-loud funny, like his rookie gaffes and lifelong antics with his older brother Ken, a fellow big leaguer and no-hit artist.

    "Disappointing narrator"
    What would have made Tales from the St. Louis Cardinals Dugout better?

    A narrator that does not sound computer generated. It would also be helpful if he knew how to pronounce the names of Bruce Sutter, Red Shoendinst and Don Denkinger. I think these would be good to know when reading stories about the Cardinals in the 80's.


    What could Bob Forsh and Tom Wheatley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I love hearing these stories, but in this way they seem disjointed. While many are fun they don't stand on their own well. I would have enjoyed it more if it were told in more of a single continuous narrative.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Scherer’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It mostly comes down to the reader, he sounds as if he has never even seen a baseball game. He is very flat. It comes across more like a film strip from grade school than stories about baseball. I keep waiting for the "boop" to indicate it is time to turn the slide (nobody under 30 will understand what I am talking about there).
