Baseball has endured as one of our most cherished American institutions for nearly a century and a half. It is a shared treasure that continues to bond one generation to the next, and its rhythms and vocabulary are embedded into our consciousness at an early age.
And Boston, with its rich history and eternally passionate fans, has long been considered the quintessential baseball town. Members of the Red Sox Nation wear their colors with pride and unwavering loyalty, and the storied history of baseball’s greatest franchise is passed along with the same kind of zeal. For the Love of the Red Sox presents a unique opportunity to celebrate that legacy and to recapture its magic.
Longtime Wall Street Journal columnist Frederick C. Klein and renowned artist Mark Anderson have collaborated to create the perfect vehicle for introducing young fans to the Red Sox immortals. Each letter of the alphabet showcases one or more Boston baseball icons with brilliant illustrations, witty poems, and brief summaries of their places in Red Sox history. Names like Williams, Yastrzemski, Fisk, and Garciaparra are brought to life on these colorful pages, which provide a loving, educational way to indoctrinate the next generation of Sox fans.About the Author:
