The legend of the curse of the Bambino by Dan Shaughnessy( Book )
9 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 992 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
Francona : the Red Sox years by Terry Francona( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 885 libraries worldwide
From 2004 to 2011, the author managed the Boston Red Sox, the most talked about, scrutinized team in all of sports. In this book, the legendary manager opens up for the first time about his eight years there, as they went from cursed franchise to one of the most successful and profitable in baseball history. He takes readers inside the rarefied world of a 21st-century clubhouse, from 2004 when they won their first championship in 86 years, through another win in 2007, to the controversial September collapse just four years later. He recounts the tightrope walk of managing personalities like Pedro Martinez and Manny Ramirez, working with Theo Epstein and his statistics-driven executives, balancing their data with the emotions of a 25-man roster, and meeting the expectations of three owners with often wildly differing opinions. Along the way readers are treated with back-slapping, never-before-told stories about their favorite players, moments, losses, and wins

At Fenway : dispatches from Red Sox Nation by Dan Shaughnessy( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 250 libraries worldwide
Seeing baseball played at Fenway is an experience like no other for Red Sox fans and rivals alike because the park reminds us of what baseball used to be. Fenway may not offer fans the best seats or even adequate parking, but when game-goers walk through the park's gate, the smell of hotdogs and roasted peanuts, the sight of Fenway's brilliant green grass and the roar of the Fenway faithful overwhelms the most jaded of baseball enthusiasts, even Yankee fans. At Fenway celebrates the rich history of Fenway Park home to the Boston Red Sox. Told through the wit and perceptions of Dan Shaughnessy, sports columnist for the Boston Globe and one of New England's most admired sportswriters, At Fenway is the writer's hometown tribute to the park how growing up with Fenway and the Red Sox affected his life and the lives of the many die-hard fans living in "Red Sox Nation." Author of The Curse of the Bambino, Shaughnessy takes readers on a walking tour of the fabled park itself, exploring every nook and cranny that makes Fenway unique. He traces the early history of Fenway from the day owner John I. Taylor broke ground for its construction in 1911 to the building material that went into the making of Fenway's "Green Monster" wall. In addition, Shaughnessy introduces readers to some of the unrecognized figures who keep Fenway's cherished traditions alive, including Helen Robinson, who has operated the park's switchboard for more than half a century, and head groundskeeper Joe Mooney, who "protects and defends the green, green grass of Fenway Park." A book that uniquely captures the spirit of Fenway Park and what it means to be a Boston Red Sox fan, At Fenway also explores the "good, bad, and ugly" moments that have nurtured Fenway's love-hate relationship with fans. From the dark day of January 5, 1920, when Babe Ruth left the Red Sox to play for the Yankees, to the Red Sox's 1967 Cinderella-story pennant victory; from Carlton Fisk's 1975 World Series home run to the crowd-silencing homer Bucky Dent hit that clinched the Yankees' 1978 playoff birth, At Fenway recalls the park's greatest and worst moments and talks with the players who created them. Rumors that the Red Sox will close Fenway in a few years have already provoked outrage among the faithful. Closing Fenway will mark the end of an era, and Dan Shaughnessy captures this era in all its tragic glory. At Fenway will be read and cherished by Red Sox fans and all fans of baseball as it ought to be. From the Hardcover edition

The curse of the Bambino ( visu )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
In 1918, the Boston Red Sox won their fifth World Series championship, thanks in great part to the young pitching and hitting sensation Babe Ruth, or The Bambino. Following the 1919 season, in which the team failed to make the Series, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the Babe to the New York Yankees who went on to dominate the game of baseball for many decades. At the time this production aired in 2003, the Red Sox had not won a World Series since 1918. (They then won the 2004 World Series.) The documentary focuses on the die-hard Boston fans who lived their entire lives lamenting the alleged "Curse" placed on their team when the Babe, who became the sport's most famous player, was delivered to their bitter rivals in New York

Spaceman a baseball odyssey ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 26 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
