Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by Chairman Mao's infamous Little Red Book, “Spaceman” Bill Lee offers an off-the-wall revisionist history of baseball's most colorful franchise, the Boston Red Sox. In addition to rewriting Red Sox history, Lee offers up his unique views on today's and yesteryear's game. With this hilarious take on Red Sox history, the Spaceman proves he's the true MVP in helping the Red Sox win the 2004 World Series and lift the Curse of the Bambino.
The newly updated version of Bill Lee's hilarious, tongue-in-cheek 2003 hit allows the "Spaceman" to take credit for single-handedly giving the Red Sox their first championship in 86 years due to the power of his storytelling ability and, of course, good karma. Photos throughout.
