Our Red Sox: A Story of Family, Friends, and Fenway

Overview

Journalist Robert Sullivan can't remember a day when he was not a Red Sox fan. It seems he was born a devotee; he certainly was raised to be one.

Overview

Journalist Robert Sullivan can't remember a day when he was not a Red Sox fan. It seems he was born a devotee; he certainly was raised to be one. From Ted to Yaz, the to-the-death pledge of fidelity to the celebrated team was a rite of passage for anyone growing up in semi rural Massachusetts in the 1950s and ’60s. Our Red Sox chronicles the love affair of a man, a family, and a community for “their” team. It’s about playoffs recently past and seasons long ago, about 1918 and 2004 and everything in between. It’s about families and sandlots and bleacher seats and press row, about tragedies remembered and frighteningly real — all happening in an orbit around the park called Fenway — as well as the luminous moments of camaraderie and triumph. Our Red Sox is a witty, gentle, moving memoir from deep inside a wonderful place called Red Sox Nation.
