Opening day is right around the corner—To get me through the cold winter months and the early spring I had to catch up on baseball through reruns on NESN, or online in the Hot Stove Reports and of course, our shelves here at the OWL. Did you know that we have a GREAT selection of books commemorating our VICTORIOUS 2004 SEASON? I love to peruse the color pages of Cursed Reversed by Sporting News—for those die hard fans this is the hardcover version of the magazine they published after the Sox won the world series—
Now I Can Die in Peace by Bill Simmons is a great book that only a true fan can “feel” the title! And yes,sadly, we do have books on the Evil Empire but it would pain me too much to list them here. If you are a parent bringing your child up the RIGHT way, we do have plenty of baseball books in the children’s room.A biography on Big Papi, The History of the Boston Red Sox and The Ball Park a great pictorial of Fenway.
Hartford Courant—great baseball coverage for Connecticut Red Sox Fans
Neil Diamond: Hot August Nights
( Sweet Caroline—) (nothing better than belting this out with 30,000 people in Fenway– )
