Barry Abrams is at it again, narrating a sports book in his signature casual tone. When baseball fans look at 1973, they find a season that includes the doormat-to-contender New York Mets; the Oakland A's, led by frugal owner Charlie Finley; one of the game's greatest players--Willie Mays--in his final year; and Hank Aaron in pursuit of the home-run record. Author John Rosengren does a fine job diving into these moments, along with the shenanigans of egotistical George Steinbrenner and President Richard Nixon. Abrams has a wonderful sense of this subject. He occasionally shifts his voice when someone is quoted but doesn't go overboard. He always seems to create an appropriate marriage between narration and topic, yielding a fun performance best described as happy-go-lucky.
