    A FASCINATING READ

    For most of the 2004 season I have been deeply involved along with my son Fred in the fortunes of the Red Sox and Yankees. After all, as authors of 'Red Sox Vs.Yankees: the Great Rivalry' we have done a lot of promotion, signing, media. We do have a vested interest in things Yankees and Red Sox. And along comes 'One Day at Fenway' by Steve Kettmann (Atria Books, $25.00, 306 pages). Since the Frommer book focuses on decades of Boston-New York battles, the Kettmann work made me wonder a bit about the relevancy of an opus focused on an old ball game played at Fenway - on August 30,2003, to be exact. But Kettmann quickly ended my wondering as I got into his goldmine of a book researched and painstakingly chronicled by the author and a dozen reporters set loose that day. Not only was 'Kettmann's crew' in Boston but a couple of members were in Santo Domingo and Kwangiu, South Korea. The end result is a fascinating read, a kind of ground breaking read, one that shows the many facets of the national pastime and why there are stories still out there waiting to be told. Congrats Steve Kettmann.

    Very enjoyable and even enlightening

    This is a very enjoyable book. It is amazing that the author was able to take so many different sources and incorporate it into a complete story told from the first person perspective. I enjoyed it so much that I bought a second copy and shipped it to a Red Sox fan for a birthday present. I went to Fenway once on a business trip and the author(s) did a great job of capturing the park and the crowd. The insights of the GMs and owners were very good. So many times they are portrayed as just number crunchers that we lose sight of the fact that they ar fans. They are also very knowledgeable about the nuances of the game. The one thing that was lacking is that I would like to have had more details about Cashmans actions and thoughts during the game. This would have ben very interesting as he was the visiting GM. The authors summation at the end of the book was also enjoyable, and in my opinion, accurate. I would LOVE to read a book written like this (same format) about the nuances of the game, from 9 or 18 players perspectives.
