Audible Editor Reviews

Ann Liguori, whose award-winning sports broadcasting career has spanned 20 years, interviews baseball legend Whitey Ford for her Audio Hall of Fame series. Liguori's cheery and gracious manner draws Ford, who was voted into the Hall of fame in 1974, into speaking candidly about his days playing among New York Yankee legends such as Phil Rizzuto, Yogi Berra, and Joe DiMaggio. Liguori's interview feels more like an affable conversation between two engaging characters as Ford charms with his amusing and revealing reminiscences, prompted on by Liguori's insightful comments and questions.
