Publisher's Summary

Baseball has been celebrated as "America's National Pastime" for more than 150 years, and recalls what seems to be a more innocent age - long summer afternoons and sandlot ball, fresh rural air, and brownstone stoops. This course, presented by Kenyon College professor Dr. Timothy B. Shutt, is a celebration of baseball's rich past and of a game stronger than ever.

    "Probably good."

    I downloaded this audio book as an Australian who knows nothing about baseball. It was quite interesting, and I did enjoy listening about the history of baseball. However, I think it is aimed for baseball fans (not a surprise, right?). Some great insights, but a lot of names are thrown around and I couldn't keep track of them all. I would estimate 25% of the time I was tuned out, waiting for the lecturer to stop talking about names of people I had forgotten and move onto more interesting topics. Three stars because I feel it is a good download if you are the right audience for it.
