The book begins at home, the home of the Red Sox, Fenway Park. As it was, as it changed over the years and pretty much as it stands today. Once into the park from the entrances along Yawkey Way, there are several pages of highlights including the story of the 1918 Worlds Championship - the team's last in the 20th Century - and the 1946 teram which won 104 games. No wonder, it was the year Ted Williams, back from military service during WWII, teamed up with Bobby Doerr, Dom Dimaggio, Johnny Pesky and Rudy York. Next up, a section built around the teams greatest players: Ted Williams, Cy Young, Tris Speaker, Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, Mel Parnell, Carl Yastremski, Carlton Fisk, Luis Tiant, Dwight Evans, Jim Rice and Roger Clemens among others.
The fourth section covers (with one exception) the team's record in post season play focusing on its appearances in the World Series. Here, once again, a fan confronts the team's breakdown in Game six of the 1986 Series when, one strike away from the flag, a wild pitch/ passed ball "and the ultimate indignity - a routine grounder going through Bill Buckner's legs" paved the way for a come from behind championship for The Mets.Read more ›
