<P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal>An examination of the unique affinity New Englanders have for their Red Sox, this work illustrates how the storied history of the franchise mirrors that of New England itself. Founded in 1901 and playing in front of sold out crowds at Fenway Park for more than a century, the Boston Red Sox are far and away New England’s most beloved franchise, and this work features topics such as the team’s relationship to the Kennedys, the comparison of fans’ treatment of Bill Buckner to the Salem Witch Trials, the fans inside an Irish pub in one of Boston’s toughest neighborhoods, and travels to a miniature replica of Fenway Park in a small Vermont town. Entertaining and informative, <I>How the Red Sox Explain New England</I> is sure to be popular among one of sports’ most passionate and dedicated fan bases.
