The engaging snarkiness of Jim Bouton's writing shines in this entertaining audiobook. Bouton chronicles his efforts to save Wahconah Park, an old stadium in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and to bring a minor league baseball team to the city. Jim Seybert narrates with the right mix of candor, hubris, and resentment. This is not a baseball book, as many would expect. Instead, it's a chronicle of the dysfunction and political gamesmanship Bouton faced during his ultimately unsuccessful efforts. Seybert builds on the dialogue that makes the story so engaging, taking it to the next level with sarcastic inflections that enhance the details of Bouton's frustrated efforts. Even non-baseball fans will relish this performance. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
