    Fenway's Best

    One of the benefits of retirement is that I have the time to read, and of the many books celebrating Fenway Park¿s 100th year, I have to say this stands apart as the definitive volume. I have been going to Fenway Park for decades and thought I knew all about it, but after reading Fenway 1912 I can¿t wait to visit Fenway next season. It will be like seeing it for the first time. The writer gives an explicit and detailed account of how Fenway Park was constructed and designed, something this old engineer really appreciated. Then he tells the story of the 1912 Red Sox, a team that didn¿t get along but still managed to win, something the 2011 Red Sox could learn a lesson about. He even manges to bring those old players to life. We learn that not only was Joe Wood a great pitcher, but plagued by self doubt and also something of a ladies¿ man. Even as he tells the story of the season, Fenway Park is never very far away as we learn along the way more bits of information, like how the Green Monster got its name, than I know what to do with. The book ends with the World Series. Fenway Park has a starring role and, for the Sox fan, the book ends the best way, with a World Series win. One of the best books on the Red Sox and baseball I¿ve recently had the pleasure to read, one that turns what could have been a hard subject to write about into an drama.
