Providing a behind-the-scenes look at the personalities and events that have shaped the Detroit Tigers’ recent resurgence, readers will meet the players, coaches, and management and share in their moments of greatness, grief, and quirkiness. Beginning in 2002, when author Mario Impemba arrived in the Tigers’ broadcast booth and when the team had consecutive 100-loss seasons, the book details how, in just three shorts years, team president Dave Dombrowski and manager Jim Leyland led the Tigers to the American League pennant—a feat the Tigers repeated in 2012. Impemba takes readers into the Comerica Park broadcast booth alongside the legendary Ernie Harwell, onto the team plane during the team’s two runs to the World Series, and into the clubhouse as Miguel Cabrera closed in on the 2012 Triple Crown. He shares personal stories about several Tigers stars, including Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder, Curtis Granderson, Ivan Rodriguez, Kenny Rogers, Magglio Ordonez, and more. If These Walls Could Talk: Detroit Tigers gives fans a taste of what it’s like to be a part of the Tigers storied history from a perspective unlike any other.

Good Read As a life long Tigers fan,I had to read this book, despite underwhelming reviews. I also love Mario as a broadcaster. Now this is not a well written book. it is very repetitive and the kindle version does have errors. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Mario’s career is solid, which I was not aware of. The stories and insight are great, often funny, and interesting. I say to Tiger fans, read this, focus on quantity, not quality, and you surely will enjoy.

Roy Shields "R. Shields" says:

very superficial I love Tiger baseball! I also love good sports books. I happen to enjoy Mario Empemba’s game coverage. I just don’t think he gave us anything more than very “surface-level” anecdotes and a very brief sketch of life behind the microphone. It was clear to me that he had to be careful not to offend or create any waves with what is in the book, since he does not want to risk his career. Sorry, Mario, but stick with announcing games.

Michael R. Moore says:

The Mario Impemba Story This book should be titled “My Life in Baseball” since it’s more about Mario than anything else. If you are a die hard Tiger fan, you will already be familiar with the majority of situations that Mario describes. The title of the book is a big come on and so is the enticing picture of Miguel Cabrera. Most people who saw the book on my desk thought it was a book about Miguel. What a disappointment.
