One on One with “Lucky Bastard” Joe Buck

You can probably think of several reasons to call Joe Buck a lucky bastard. He grew up at Busch Stadium with his dad Jack Buck, the legendary voice of the St. Louis Cardinals, playing catch with baseball greats. He started calling baseball games on-air at age 21. And, he’s broadcast 19 World Series and five Super Bowls (counting Super Bowl LI on February 5). Joe Buck admits he’s had a pretty good life, but it’s not all because of luck. In this one on one, Joe discusses his book, “Lucky Bastard: My Life, My Dad and the Things I’m Not allowed to Say on TV,” and the many things you probably don’t know about him.

Maryville Talks Books features interviews by noted authors.
