The Ultimate Boston Red Sox Time Machine presents a timeline format that not only includes the Red Sox's greatest moments--including its nine World Series wins and individual achievements--but focuses also on some very unusual seasons and events, such as the refusal of the New York Yankees to go up against them in the 1904 World Series, the derivation of its name, and of c ...more

The Boston Red Sox have one of more colorful histories of teams in Major League Baseball. Early in their existence, they were the most dominant team in the game. Then an infamous trade that led to an alleged curse on the franchise became the main talking point for the franchise until their recent return to glory with 4 championships in 15 years. Their history is condensed into this fairly short, quick reading book by Marty Gitlin.

The biggest surprise for me reading this book was the relatively l

The Ultimate Boston Red Sox Time Machine Book by Martin Gitlin is a fun read that works well read cover to cover as I did or spread over a longer time with each chapter read as if an essay or short story.

The reason it would work well for those who love baseball but really just want something to read for a short time before bed is because this is not so much a single comprehensive history as it is a bunch of episodes from Boston Red Sox history. As the title implies, this is like a time machine t

It might be tough to fathom, considering we’re still in the deep freeze of winter, but baseball season is just around the corner. Spring training begins in just a matter of weeks; before you know it, there will be meaningful action on the diamond once again.

But maybe you’re looking for something to tide you over, to remind you of just why we love the game as much as we do. If that sounds like you – and you’re a Red Sox fan – I might have something for you.

Being from the UK and coming into baseball late in life when I eventually embraced my brother's love of all things MLB, especially the Red Sox, I find myself lacking in history. When Papi announced his retirement, forcing us to plan a holiday Stateside to see him before he quit for good, I watched a fantastic game against the Yankees at Fenway and my love for the Sox started in earnest. And then I found this book which I hoped would fill in some of the gaps in my education. Whether all of what I ...more

As a Red Sox fan from 2002, I know all the names of the storied past, but not necessarily the full story. This timeline filled in a few holes and then let me relive the glory year of 2004. If anything, it could have delved a bit deeper into certain personalities, however that would be a VERY long book. This is very enjoyable for a Red Sox fan and any lover of the game.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book.

I’d like to thank NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for providing me with a digital ARC of this book for my review.

The Ultimate Boston Red Sox Time Machine Book is a thoroughly enjoyable history of the Red Sox, many of their best players, and even their fans. There’s not really anything new here, but then again it would be difficult to present anything truly new given all that’s been written about the Red Sox (especially
