Who’s on Worst? The Lousiest Players, Biggest Cheaters, Saddest Goats and Other Antiheroes in Baseball History

Filip Bondy, read by Scott Brick. Random House Audio, unabridged, digital download, 8 hrs., $20 ISBN 978-0-385-36259-7
Based on a collection of hilarious real-life tales from gifted sportswriter Bondy (Bleeding Pinstripes: A Season with the Bleacher Creatures of Yankee Stadium) this audiobook will have listeners begging for more. Narrated by the ever-reliable Scott Brick, these jaw-dropping and uproarious stories offer a plethora of colorful characters and narratives that question the integrity of America’s Pastime. Fortunately, Brick doesn’t attempt to embellish the stories—most likely because they need no embellishment. Whether it’s the discussion of the Mendoza Line, named for Mario Mendoza, who will go down as one of the worst hitters in baseball history, or the examination of spitball aficionado Gaylord Perry, Brick delivers the tales with passion and exuberance. A must-listen for all baseball fans. A Doubleday hardcover. (March)
