SWING KINGS The Inside Story of Baseball's Home Run Revolution

by | Read by Joe Farinacci

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Baseball, perhaps more than any other team sport, is mired in tradition and slow to embrace change. This audiobook tells the story of a group of maverick coaches who are transforming the game with radical ideas about how batters should swing for the fences. The gruff-voiced Joe Farinacci channels the energy and verve of a sportscaster into his narration, though occasionally he sounds unnecessarily intense. Diamond, a baseball writer for THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, is a storyteller, not a stats geek, and he engages listeners with plenty of anecdotes from history, as well as from his own detailed interviews with current players and their mentors. This is an entertaining listen that will appeal to fans who are mourning the loss of the 2020 baseball season. D.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
