A project I worked on this winter just came out this week. It’s an audio book called “Baseball Forever,” for which I mined the game tape, dating back to the 1930s, assembled by the country’s preeminent collector of such things, John Miley. My goal was to present the collection in a somewhat unusual way; where many highlights packages offer little more than the moment in question (“Here’s the swing, it’s hit hard … and gone!”), I endeavored to allow space for as many plays as possible to breathe, using entire at-bats and even full innings to present classic moments more comprehensively than they are commonly heard. Bob Costas narrates.
