At long last the Sox are home in Boston! Time to get out those Papelbon and Youkilis teeshirts!
I hope the Sox give us as many thrills in '08 as they did in '07!
To start the baseball season off well-read, here are a few relatively new baseball titles to look for on your next visit to the library:
Canseco, Jose. Vindicated: Big Names, Big Liars, and the Battle to Save Baseball. [B CAN]
Cook, Sally and James Charlton. Hey Batta Batta Swing! The Wild Old Days of Baseball. [J 796.357 COO]
Goode, Jon. Pitching with the Papelbons. [JP GOO]
Holley, Michael. Red Sox Rule: A Season in the Life of a Manager. [796.357 HOL]
Krantz, Les. Reel Baseball: Baseball's Golden Era, the Way America Witnessed It--In the Movie Newsreels. [796.357 KRA]
Ortiz, David. Big Papi: My Story of Big Dreams and Big Hits. [B ORT]
Since tickets to a Red Sox game are "scarcer than hen's teeth," you may not be able to go to Fenway. Consider attending a Red Sox minor league team. The Fisher Cats host the Portland Sea Dogs several times during the 2008 season!
