Memories from the Microphone by Curt Smith

I am a big baseball fan. I am tried and true Dodger blue, and one my biggest heroes is the legendary Vin Scully.

When I saw Memories from the Microphone pop up on Amazon, I could not order it fast enough.

As soon as it was delivered, I cracked that book open and started to read immediately.

Then something felt off. The composition of the book was weird. I had a hard time following along. So, I did a quick search online and figured it out.

Curt Smith, though probably intelligent baseball mind, needs a better editor. Years ago, I picked Pull Up a Chair: The Vin Scully Story written by Curt Smith with crazy anticipation only to be let down in a similar way.

I do not understand the structure of the book. Facts are sprinkled seemingly at random. There is no consistent timeline.

I wanted to love this book so much, but I just couldn’t. I just couldn’t.
