Format: Paperback
Excellent guidebook. Do not look any further...it covers everything I wanted to know (and I am truly a die-hard Boston fan), and everything I needed. Precise writing, excellent research on each team/organization/venue, and great tips and info on deals. Really got me excited for the summer sports season and the Red Sox next title run!

I'm pretty new to Boston and the sports craze here is out of control. I bought the guide as an introduction of sorts I guess and its been an awesome lifesaver!

The background of each sport is really interesting and now I know some trivia that the boys at the bar don't know!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By MAVERICK on June 22, 2009
Format: Paperback
This books is great. It's phenomenal how many great spectator events there are for Boston sports fans--and the author covers just about everything (from Suffolk Downs to the Cape League and beyond!). It's full of information about where to go, how to get there--and in the case of the Sox and Pats--how you can get reasonably priced tickets. All that said, though, the real heart and soul of this book is the history. Like much of the nation's history, the history of sports in Boston has shaped the way the games are played today. I recommend this book, not just for die-hard fans, but for all sports enthusiasts who are interested in knowing more about their hometown.
