Editorial Reviews

Tales from the San Francisco Giants Dugout traces the storied history of this relocated Major League Baseball team through multidimensional profiles of famous players like Barry Bonds as well as through chronological profiles of individual decades. Professional voice artist Dan Lenard brings a liveliness to these tales that rivals an excited sports announcer’s.

Co-authors (and Giants fans) Peters and Shea make ample use of quotes from manager Dusty Baker and assorted players to tell the story of the New York team that moved to California in 1958. When Lenard performs the tale of Barry Bonds’ quest for a home run record, the listener is on the edge of his figurative seat, which may or may not be stationed behind home plate.

Publisher's Summary

Tales from the San Francisco Giants Dugout captures some of the humorous and poignant moments of the team’s years on the West Coast, from the intense rivalry with the Dodgers to their amazing victory in the 2010 World Series.

don't bother

this is just a recitation of games, play by play of a few semi-interesting games - no juicy stories about personnel. nothing you can't find in a book of Giant's statistics.

Reader should be fired

Mispronounced so many names it was a huge distraction from an otherwise interesting read. Any Giants fan would be outraged!

Great story

Author mispronounced so many of the players names that it hurt at times to listen to. Except for that, as a Giants fan it was good. Wish it had covered the 2012 and 2014 seasons.

Many names said wrong

The narrator clearly was not informed about how to pronounce names as many, many are said incorrectly. Also, one chapter is repeated. Good book, just was annoying to hear names of beloved people said incorrectly.
