How the Red Sox Explain New England


How the Red Sox Explain New England Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An examination of the unique affinity New Englanders have for their Red Sox, this work illustrates how the storied history of the franchise mirrors that of New England itself. Founded in 1901 and playing in front of sold out crowds at Fenway Park for more than a century, the Boston Red Sox are far and away New Englands most beloved franchise, and this work features topics such as the teams relationship to the Kennedys, the comparison of fans treatment of Bill Buckner to the Salem Witch Trials, the fans inside an Irish pub in one of Bostons toughest neighborhoods, and travels to a miniature replica of Fenway Park in a small Vermont town. Entertaining and informative, How the Red Sox Explain New England is sure to be popular among one of sports most passionate and dedicated fan bases.
