Brand new hard cover book in excellent condition.

Following nearly 25 years as a prominent voice at NPR, Neal Conan decided to pursue a lifelong dream -- to become a baseball announcer. And that's what he did, with the Aberdeen Arsenal of the independent Atlantic League. Not the majors, but it afforded him an opportunity to rethink what he'd done & what he was doing. It also allowed Neal to combine his two lifelong passions -- radio & baseball -- & gave him the chance to return to the grassroots of each. This is Conan's diary of Aberdeen s 2000 season. Through the lens of the minor leagues, Conan captures the soul of a great sport & reveals the ways men face age, come to terms with their limitations & ambitions & look for new challenges when they're no longer young phenoms.
