Summary
The Ultimate Boston Red Sox Time Machine presents a timeline format that not only includes the Red Sox's greatest moments--including its nine World Series wins and individual achievements--but focuses also on some very unusual seasons and events, such as the refusal of the New York Yankees to go up against them in the 1904 World Series, the derivation of its name, and of course the famous Curse of the Bambino. There are dozens of impressive, wild, wacky and wonderful stories over the years regarding Red Sox history and Gitlin is the perfect person to write it with his trademark humor and thorough knowledge of Red Sox lore. -- Provided by publisher.
