Seeing baseball played at Fenway is an experience like no other for Red Sox fans and rivals alike because the park reminds us of what baseball used to be.Fenway may not offer fans the best seats or even adequate parking, but when game-goers walk through the park's gate, the smell of hotdogs and roasted peanuts, the sight of Fenway's brilliant green grass and the roar of th ...more

It's an OK review of the Red Sox history though I liked the book "Red Sox Nation" better. This seems to be too much from the perspective of 'beat reporters' and not first-hand player info and interviews (which Red Sox Nation had). I did like the last two chapters on the Jimmy Fund and "Save Fenway" though.

Comprehensive coverage of not only the Red Sox history but the stadium too. This is a rare subject, not every ball team deserves a book such as this one, the Sox do have a rich history and this story needed to be told. It does get a little dry in some areas (it took me 11 months to finish the book, I would read it off and on.). I thought Shaugnessy did a good job of informing the reader of the history and using his own personal accounts too. This book was written before the Sox went on to win th ...more

A book for the true Red Sox fan; written before the pink hats and championships.

Long time Boston Globe columnist writes of the unique history, the allure, and the passion of baseball played by the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Uncovers a few good tidbits of info along the way. Having attended games here since 1973, let me tell you, it's always an event.

fun read; a little dated; it ends with a Save Fenway chapter as everyone was pushing for a new ballpark, and of course they were still under the Curse of the Bambino.

This was a very good, general Red Sox history book. Not a lot of facts and figures, but a lot of human stories. History must be made of both. Recommended.
