Perfect Gift for the Baseball Fan
Greg Bass | New York, NY USA | 11/01/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This set is amazing and I recommend it as a gift for anyone who you know has a great love for baseball. And I do mean GREAT - this is an exhaustive set and lots of the radio broadcasts preserved here are going to bring back memories for those have been fans of the game for a long time - altho I must admit I got a kick out of hearing some of the milestones of baseball as people must have heard them for the first time. Some great old and new baseball themed songs here as well - really this is a showcase for the national pastime and illustrates what a huge part of our lives this game was and still is."
Simply fantastic

"Here's what I love about this box set - everything! It has all the tunes you would want that are related to music, but more importantly, it has the sound bites that will always be remembered. I have traveled to 17 MLB baseball stadiums and have used a video editing software to make a personal "documentary" of my trips (I did it for myself and friends I travel with). I used music and sound bites from this set to enhance my movie.

Simply put, this is just a great compilation. I have yet to find something better out there."
