Kurlansky offers an intriguing look at the history of the Dominican Republic and the role American baseball has played in the impoverished and destitute sugar-growing town of San Pedro de Macoris. Kurlansky's approach and style make this story accessible even to nonsports fans. Ed Sala's deep and slightly throaty voice is enjoyable to listen to, though at times he can be a bit halting in his rhythm. Sentences end and begin with some abruptness, and there are mild inconsistencies with Spanish pronunciation. Despite this, Kurlansky's prose and Salas's overall performance combine to keep listeners tuned in till the end. A Riverhead hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 25). (Apr.)
