Product Overview

Acclaimed actors from stage and screen perform tales from the baseball diamond in this newest, three-CD collection of stories from "Selected Shorts." Both classic and contemporary works are featured, including a heartwarming piece on some fan habits during a players'' strike, by W.P. Kinsella, and a sidesplitting account from T. Coraghessan Boyle of the longest game ever. Many of the readings were recorded during a historic broadcast of the show hosted by the late, beloved baseball commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti. From the first pitch to the final out, these short stories are a lively listening experience.
