Publisher's Summary

Your first kiss. The birth of a child. Your first big job. These indelible memories shape our identity. Great sports moments do that, too. 

Join one of America’s most prolific sports history writers and relive 15 spectacular sports moments that transfixed and inspired a nation. 

David L. Hudson, Jr. is the author of more than 40 books, an award-winning professor, and a judge for professional boxing events. In this audio series, he explores unforgettable sports moments spanning football, baseball, golf, basketball, tennis, soccer, and more. 

You’ll sit ringside as Muhammad Ali employs the “rope-a-dope” strategy to upset George Foreman in Zaire and cheer as Secretariat wins the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes by an astounding 31 lengths. You’ll gasp as Reggie Jackson leads the Yankees to the World Series Championship with three home runs and marvel as Wilt Chamberlain scores 100 points in a single NBA game.

You’ll also take in moments of triumph whose significance transcends the realm of sports, such as Jesse Owens’ victory at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, which shattered Adolf Hitler’s noxious myth of Aryan superiority.

Hudson will reanimate your favorite moments in sports history and shed new light on the men and women who achieved them.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Great storyteller

This is the third course I've listened to by Hudson, and I always love his presentation style. Perhaps because he's a boxing judge as well as a scholar, he narrates these accounts of sports triumphs with the cadence of a sports broadcaster, one with a firm grasp of the historical context behind each of these victorious moments. His articulate descriptions really draw you in and fill you with awe for the hugeness of these accomplishments, even if--like me--you're not a huge sports person.
