Larry King is a true-blue baseball fanatic. A lifelong love affair began the night he attended a Dodgers game at Ebbets Field as a kid in 1940s Brooklyn. That was a simpler era in our country's history, a time when tickets to a game cost fifty cents and parish priests prayed for Gil Hodges to break out of a slump. In this heartfelt valentine to America's favorite pastime, King recalls the many pleasures the game has brought him over the past sixty years. In the course of his broadcasting career King had the opportunity to meet and interview many of the legends of his youth. Jackie Robinson, Casey Stengel, Ted Williams, Leo Durocher, Stan Musial...they're all here plus many, many more. From the golden days when Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Duke Snider were all playing center field for New York teams at the same time, to the Subway Series in 2000 and the stirring first ballgame in New York after 9/11, this unique history is full of wonderful anecdotes. Friends and fellow baseball fanatics Bob Costas, Charlie Bragg and Herb Cohen have contributed essays on their love for the game, and King discusses his favorite books, movies and songs about the sport. This ode to baseball is a must for all fans and will be treasured by lovers of the game everywhere.

From AudioFile:

Even casual Larry King fans know that he loves baseball--with a passion greater than his love of suspenders. In WHY I LOVE BASEBALL, King shares his devotion to the American pastime, mixing stories from his youth with anecdotes from the present or recent past. In particular, lifelong baseball fans will share King's unbridled enthusiasm about his meetings with the who's who of the sport; more importantly, they will understand why King would seemingly give up his career if he could, somehow, transform baseball into his life's work. If there's one minor flaw with the production, it's King's tendency to speak a tad too quickly. But even that shortcoming will matter little to true baseball aficionados, who will want to hear each story as quickly as possible.
