Fenway Park at 100: Baseball's Hometown
On April 20, 1912, The Boston Red Sox played their first official game at Fenway Park. 27,000 fans were on hand to witness the Red Sox defeat the rival New York Highlanders-later known as the Yankees-7-6 in 11 innings. It was an event that may have made front page news in Boston had it not been for the sinking of the Titanic five days earlier. Since that day, the oddly-shaped stadium at 4 Yawkey Way has played host to nearly 8,000 Red Sox games, including fifty-five in the postseason, launching the legends of Tris Speaker, Jimmie Foxx, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Wade Boggs, and Pedro Martinez, and making the ballpark a worldwide destination for legions of baseball fans in the process. From the Green Monster to Pesky's Pole, The Triangle to the lone red seat marking the longest home run ever hit in the stadium (a 502-foot blast off the bat of Ted Williams in 1946), Fenway Park's unique charms have captivated generations of sports fans. 100 Years of Fenway Park tells through vivid, full-color photographs and illuminating prose, the story of the most cherished American stadium, creating an endearing portrait of a building whose rich history resonates in the hearts and minds of the Red Sox vast fanbase. With a special foreword by Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, this is a book that no Red Sox fan should be without.

Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Mookie Betts, three superb outfielders who are known collectively as the Killer B's, have set Major League Baseball abuzz. Most notably, they made up the Red Sox World Series-winning outfield in 2018, a season in which Betts was voted the American League MVP and received a Gold Glove, Bradley earned ALCS MVP accolades and also a Gold Glove, and Benintendi featured one of the smoothest swings since Ted Williams to complement his defensive prowess. In The Boston Red Sox Killer B's, veteran authors Jim Prime and Bill Nowlin team up once again to cover the young careers of all three players, with special emphasis on the 2018 season. Along the way, Prime and Nowlin incorporate on- and off-field stories and interviews with teammates to offer fans a better understanding of how this trio has transformed into New England folk heroes and how they have developed a chemistry unmatched by any other outfield around the league. This book serves as the perfect gift for any Red Sox fan!

Thanks to an unconventional and irreverent but effective approach to the game, the underdog 2004 Red Sox captured the imagination of New England and the entire nation. In their quixotic quest, they defied an ancient curse and slew the hated Yankees en route to the October Classic and a meeting with the St. Louis Cardinals.
