Overview

The Boston Red Sox are one of the most storied sports franchises in North America. Steeped in tradition, they represent a veritable treasure trove of baseball lore. From the earliest days of a promising young pitcher named Babe Ruth, through the glory years of Foxx, Williams, and Yastrzemski, to the present era of superstars such as Garciaparra and Martinez, the Red Sox epitomize all that is grand about the grand old game. Over the years they've been blessed with some of the most colorful and engaging characters ever to don a major league uniform — Bill "Spaceman" Lee, Dick "Dr. Strangeglove" Stuart, and Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd, to name just a few. Tales from the Red Sox Dugout captures the flavor and atmosphere of the Red Sox dugout. You'll find this book as irresistible as a sunny afternoon doubleheader at Fenway.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The lore of two storied franchises that haven't won a championship in the lifetimes of most readers is addressed in these volumes. Both teams have a wide and devoted following. These books make for light and breezy reading as they are basically compilations of anecdotes, some off-color, and odd facts about the greats and lesser-known players. Arranged alphabetically by last name, the anecdotes are separated and bordered by graphics of baseballs. Some illustrations of players also appear throughout. The humor of the books should appeal to young adults as well as their parents. The anecdotes strive to be insightful, though some readers might consider the stories to be bland at best. These books are optional purchases that regional libraries may consider. [The Red Sox's last World Series championship came at the expense of the even more starcrossed Cubs, in 1918.--Ed.].--Paul Kaplan, Lake Villa Dist. Lib., IL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

    Good book for Baseball Fans

    It isn't necessary to be a Red Sox fan to enjoy reading this book. It's good to read of the crazy stunts that some of the ball players pulled. I remember a lot of the older players like Ted Williams and Pesky and more of that era. VERY GOOD READING!

    Tales from the Red Sox Dugout

    Two great new books: Red Sox Century and Tales From the Red Sox Dugout. Century is everything you ever wanted to know about the Red Sox. Tales looks at the lighter, quirky side of the team, and all the characters and heroes that the Sox have had over the years. Both are great additions to any baseball library.

    Tales from the Red Sox Dugout

    This book says it all about the Red Sox. They are great fun, even when they lose. The book is full of funny stories that offer us a glimpse behind the scenes. I really enjoyed it.
