True baseball fans know Lou Gehrig's time on the diamond served as a critical component of the Yankees' classic teams. He should not be regarded as having stood in Babe Ruth's shadow. Non-fans know Gehrig as the namesake of the disease that cut short his life. Historian Alan D. Gaff has brought to life lost newspaper columns by the Iron Horse, and narrators Angelo Di Loreto and Kyle Tait help his story come alive. Tait narrates Gaff's introduction and follow-up essay, while Di Loreto voices Gehrig. The two work well. Tait's voice is higher, with good enunciation. Di Loreto's is lower, adding a serious quality to the audiobook. Di Loreto's slight East Coast accent is appropriate for New York City native Gehrig. The columns form an autobiographical account, and the narrators serve as teammates to bring the story home. M.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
