Product Description

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

What is a Driveway MomentSM? Maybe it’s happened to you as it has to countless others. . . . You’re driving home, listening to a story on NPR. Suddenly, you find yourself in your driveway (or parking space or parking garage). Rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car to hear the piece to the end. It’s a Driveway Moment.

The NPR Driveway Moments Series collects these “best of” stories so that you are never more than a “play” away from a Driveway Moment.
