"From its famous left-field wall, known as the Green Monster, to its wonderfully anachronistic hand-operated scoreboard, Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, is alive with personality and history. Fenway is the setting for the jewel of baseball's myths, the "curse of the Bambino," that twentieth-century plague which annually dooms the Red Sox's quest for a World Series title. In a world where Astroturf and labor disputes seem to dominate baseball, Fenway links us to the game as it's meant to be played: as a national pastime that is part scorekeeping and part storytelling." "There are stories aplenty in At Fenway, Dan Shaughnessy's tribute to this grande dame of ballparks. He tells us why Fenway was built in such a quirky, intimate style and how its unique architecture has affected the Red Sox style of baseball. He introduces us to Red Sox Nation, the global community of Sox fans that thrives despite the team's tragic history. And Shaughnessy meditates on the four seasons of the Red Sox calendar - from the burgeoning hope of spring training through the agony of autumn collapse and winter anguish."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
