Mister Ron's Basement #113
'Horseshoes' by Ring Lardner (1914) --
a little lengthier than most stories here in the Basement, but loads of fun and really worth listening to. You'll find lots of namedropping here, including a terrific sequence involving Washington pitching legend Walter Johnson. There's an exciting and funny description of a World Series, very loosely based on the 1913 matchup between Philadelphia's Athletics and New York's Giants, but fictionalized, and with a couple of extra games thrown in.
Time: approx forty-seven and a half minutes
