Summary

Stories from the National Public Radio archives honor America's national pastime.

Stories so compelling you'll stay in your car to hear them through - even if you're sitting in your own driveway. Peabody-winning Talk of the Nation host Neal Conan presents tales about the big leagues and the little, the fans in the stands, the players, the history, and the lore.

Highlights include commentaries from some of the game's most recognized authorities, a look back at some of baseball's most important figures (Jackie Robinson, Joltin' Joe DiMaggio), and colorful segments about the game's unexpected delights, from the Hidden Ball Trick to the "All You Can Eat" option at Dodger Stadium.

The National Pastime

interesting, funny, uplifting stories about baseball aka the national pastime. I particularly enjoyed the interview with the only woman to pitch professionally in the major leagues. it's wonderful that she can remember with laughter what must have been tough times.
