Veteran sportswriter Joe Posnanski has compiled a thoughtful ranking of the top 100 baseball players, which Cary Hite narrates backward from 100. Hite's diction is clear throughout the compilation, which is marred on occasion by a mispronunciation, but his deep voice and judicious amount of energy make up for it. He alters his voice just slightly and appropriately when quoting someone, a technique that brings alive Posnanski's breakdown. The author uses a narrative approach and does not overwhelm the listener with statistics, which is helpful, especially for audio. Not only is this a baseball lover's dream book, but the casual listener can gain a great appreciation for the game's greatest players through its words and Hite's resonant narration.
