A Revisionist Red Sox History, which considers such parallel universe outcomes as bootlegger Joe Kennedy's buying the team and befriending Babe Ruth or Adolf Hitler's inventing the Wave while visiting Fenway Park.

Meet the Author

Bill "Spaceman" Lee pitched in the Major Leagues for 14 years, 10 of which were with the Boston Red Sox. The California native amassed a career record of 119–90 including three consecutive 17-win seasons with the Red Sox. He earned the nickname “Spaceman” for his nonconformist attitudes, his outrageous comments, and for his enjoyment of recreational drugs. He lives in Craftsbury, Vermont. Jim Prime is the coauthor of several previous books on the Boston Red Sox, including Fenway Saved; Tales from the Red Sox Dugout; More Tales from the Red Sox Dugout; Ted Williams: A Tribute; Ted Williams' Hit List; and Ted Williams: The Pursuit of Perfection. He lives in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.

    an imaginative look at how Red Sox history MIGHT have been!

    Ever wonder how things might have been different if the Red Sox had not sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees? There might have been Red Sox players walking around with more World Series rings than they could wear on ten fingers. Bill Lee and Jim Prime float some flights of fancy here - suppose Harry Frazee didn't buy the Sox and Joseph P. Kennedy had. Suppose Ruth stayed put in Boston. Suppose the Red Sox actually signed Jackie Robinson at that infamous tryout he had in Boston. Suppose Ted Williams really had killed Adolf Hitler with a line drive. What?? You have to read the book to find out. You'll be entertained with the photo of Bucky Dent as the concert pianist he became, when he chose the keyboards over the ballfield. You'll see Bill Lee conferring with Albert Einstein. Jackie Robinson becomes President of the US. Bill Lee is one of the more fertile minds in baseball, and Jim Prime a skillful writer who had helped corral some of 'The Spaceman's' ideas and added more than a few of his own. Any Red Sox fan who needs to have their spirits lifted momentarily will find this an easy, fun read.

    Funniest Baseball Book Ever Written!

    This really is a hilarious book! Having Ted Williams kill Adolf Hitler with a line drive is a stroke (pun intended) of genius. So is having Babe stay in Boston and Jackie Robinson sign with the Red Sox. This is Bill Lee is at his best - absolutely politically incorrect - the way it should be. And he's running for Commissioner of Baseball too. There is a ton of GREAT AMMUNITION for Yankee haters like myself!! The 'Spaceman' is an American original. A great escapist baseball read for these troubled times.
