The legend of the curse of the Bambino by Dan Shaughnessy( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 572 libraries worldwide
It all started on January 5, 1920, a fateful day in baseball history, when the Boston Red Sox traded Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees for a mere pile of cash. That's when, some say, the Red Sox's reversal of fortune began. Before Ruth was traded, the Red Sox had been the best team in baseball, winning five of fifteen World Series. Since then, the Yankees have had twenty-six World Series to their credit. The Red Sox have come painstakingly close over those decades, but not close enough. Could it be that Babe Ruth took revenge on the team that traded him so long ago-making the Red Sox wait a torturous eighty-six years before they could win another World Series

At Fenway : dispatches from Red Sox Nation by Dan Shaughnessy( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
"From its famous left-field wall, known as the Green Monster, to its wonderfully anachronistic hand-operated scoreboard, Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, is alive with personality and history. Fenway is the setting for the jewel of baseball's myths, the "curse of the Bambino," that twentieth-century plague which annually dooms the Red Sox's quest for a World Series title. In a world where Astroturf and labor disputes seem to dominate baseball, Fenway links us to the game as it's meant to be played: as a national pastime that is part scorekeeping and part storytelling."--BOOK JACKET. "There are stories aplenty in At Fenway, Dan Shaughnessy's tribute to this grande dame of ballparks. He tells us why Fenway was built in such a quirky, intimate style and how its unique architecture has affected the Red Sox style of baseball. He introduces us to Red Sox Nation, the global community of Sox fans that thrives despite the team's tragic history. And Shaughnessy meditates on the four seasons of the Red Sox calendar - from the burgeoning hope of spring training through the agony of autumn collapse and winter anguish."--Jacket

Reverse of the curse of the Bambino ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
In 1918 the Boston Red Sox won their fifth World Series, thanks in great part to a young pitching and hitting sensation from the slums of Baltimore, named George Herman Ruth, a.k.a. The Babe, or The Bambino. A year later, after not advancing to the playoffs, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the Babe to the New York Yankees. In turn, the Bronx Bombers went on to win an incredible 26 World Series titles. The Sox finally won a Series in 2004, and the stories of their die-hard, long-suffering fans are told with insight and humor. This film focuses on the joy and shock of those fans who lived to see the breaking of the infamous "Curse of the Bambino."

Spaceman : a baseball odyssey ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Throughout the 1970's, Bill Lee was the ultimate gonzo baseball player, a brilliant left-handed pitcher who flouted every manager or front office executive who tried to control him. The fans loved him and so did the sportwriters who delighted in asking the usual baseball questions, only to get philosophical responses. Out of professional baseball since 1983, Lee roamed the world in search of a chance to play the game he loves. Lee's adventures have taken him across the United States to China, Russia, South American, every province of Canada and the impoverished baseball mecca of Cuba. Along the way we hear from former teammates, family members, fans and Lee himself, about the unique life and career that spawned the legend of a ballplayer who will forever be known as the Spaceman
