Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Following Michael Lichtenstein's recent Ya Gotta Believe, a 40th-anniversary Mets fan book, this one celebrates the first 100 years of the Boston Red Sox. Beginning life as the Pilgrims in 1901, the team went through other names before settling on the Red Sox and becoming Boston's beloved winners and losers. In this updated and revised edition, the Neft team also provides teasing trivia, team statistics, an all-time roster, crossword puzzles, vignettes of Babe Ruth and his alleged "curse," Ted "the Splendid Splinter" Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Nomar Garciaparra, and other stars. They salute beloved Fenway Park, award winners, and Bosox Hall of Famers. This should appeal to popular collections in New England and other outlying pockets of the "Red Sox Nation."
