Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA
Date: April 2016
Duration: 3 hours 51 minutes
The inside story of Hank Aaron's chase for the home run record, with an introduction by Tom Wolfe.
In ONE FOR THE RECORD, George Plimpton recounts Hank Aaron's thrilling race to become the new home run champion. Amidst media frenzy and death threats, Aaron sought to beat Babe Ruth's record. In 1974, he finally succeeded.
A fascinating examination of the psychology of baseball players, ONE FOR THE RECORD gives an absorbing account of the men on the mound who had to face Aaron. But the audiobook's true genius lies in the portrait of Aaron himself, and his discussions on his philosophy on hitting and the game of baseball.
Foreward by Bob Costas.
