Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Awaken baseball's ancient history with today's Groupon: for $12, you get the four-disc Ernie Harwell's Audio Scrapbook of greatest baseball moments (a $24.79 value, including shipping and handling).

This audio scrapbook pieces together some of the most memorable utterances of late hall-of-fame announcer Ernie Harwell, whose voice verbalized thousands of home runs, double plays, and peanut and crackerjack purchases across more than seven decades. From his throne high atop the stadium, Harwell narrated more than 8,000 professional baseball games, lending hallmark phrases to pivotal plays. Double plays were deemed "two for the price of one," and shouts of "looong gone!" came to signify homeruns and lost magic wallets. This four-disc set also includes interviews with such diamond all-stars as Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays, and Yogi Berra.

Reviews

Ernie Harwell, his audio scrapbook, and his passing have been featured in the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press, and the Hardball Times:

  • I’ve never been a huge fan of audiobooks [sic]. If given the choice between sitting down and reading a book or listening to a book on CD, I’d normally opt for print. For once though, I’ve found an exception. – Brian Borawski, Hardball Times
  • Unlike some announcers in recent decades, Harwell didn't litter his broadcasts with shouting, excessive talking or all-knowing pronouncements about players and managers. Listening to him was as pleasant as being at Tiger Stadium in the summertime. – John Lowe, Detroit Free Press
