 About the Book 

What is about Boston Red Sox fans? Rich and poor, old and young, famous and infamous, they hail from New England, of course, but also from Saskatchewan, Uzbekistan, Japan and the Ukraine. Author Greg Pearson has collected half a hundred of them who told their tales of the Bambino s curse, Bucky Dent, Bill Buckner and that history-making championship season: 2004. For these fans, the Red Sox are all tied up with family history, romance and the meaning of life. Obsessive? Of course. But these are true people stories, fascinating to read, people who share a common insanity. The book chronicles the baseball obsessions of Keith Lockhart, conductor of the Boston Pops- E.J. Dionne, a columnist for the Washington Post- guitarist John Pizzarelli, Jim Calhoun, the mens basketball coach at the University of Connecticut and Linda Ruth Tosetti, the granddaughter of Babe Ruth.
