From the Back Cover

You're in your car, listening to a story on your local NPR station, Suddenly, you find yourself at your destination—home, work, or the parking lot of a grocery store. The story has captured you, and rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car and listen to the end. You've had a Driveway Moment!

Baseball lends itself to stories and storytelling. We've got stories about the greats: Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson, "Double Duty" Radcliffe, Yogi Berra, Hank Aaron. Hear about the secret language of baseball signs, the organist who gets thrown out of a game, and the all-you-can-eat buffet at Dodger Stadium. There's something for every listener in this all-star line-up of commentaries, interviews and features from NPR.

The best of the "Driveway Moments" so far. Snappy and engaging and hilarious -- there's not a dull moment in this collection. I'll be buying this for all of my baseball fan friends.

I bought this for my Dad; and he loved it. The pieces cover a broad range of eras and topics about the Great Game. If you love baseball, you'll enjoy this CD.

If you love baseball, you'll appreciate this compilation of stories from NPR. I've listened to it more than a few times, too, since purchasing it and, when lending it out, have a tough time getting it back.
Play ball!

Picked this up at a yard sale for $1 and have listened twice so far, in the car. Great highlights, good interviews, some music, poetry, analysis and lots of enthusiasm. You know these NPR folks love the game! Old Timey, new timey and just in between, this is worth repeated listens!

We listened to these stories on a long road trip. Stories were so enjoyable, educational and some humorous. Would make a nice gift for a baseball fan.

Off-the-beaten-path baseball stories and anecdotes that I enjoyed listening to while driving. Some humor and some inspiration and some silliness.
