Marty Brennaman is no longer behind the microphone for the Cincinnati Reds, but that doesn't mean his unique style and way with words are a thing of the past. Based on the @titanicstruggle Twitter account that tweeted out gems from the radio booth for 10 years, this book highlights Marty’s Hall of Fame career and allows you to relive many of Marty’s best quotes. Whether it's calling out a player for a baserunning blunder, objecting to an egregious call by an umpire, wisecracking with his broadcasting buddies in the booth, or even waxing poetic to describe the action on the field, this book has the bases covered. With contributions from Vin Scully, Bob Uecker, Bob Costas, as well as the Reds broadcasting crew, we also get perspective from those Marty both respected and admired most.
Do you remember these @titanicstruggle tweets? Remember Marty saying these words?
"If a guy gets picked off by that play, he oughta be released before the sun goes down.” Apr 22 2012
“The loquacious Tommy Thrall will be dazzling you with his verbal footwork in the third. The Reds and the Braves are scoreless on the Cincy Bell Reds radio network.” Aug 04 2019
Marty's take on the royal wedding, "They could've been getting married in my living room and I wouldn't have watched it." #AskMarty Apr 29 2011
"There's the ol' third to first move that hasn't worked since Abner Doubleday invented the game." Jun 08 2012
