Foreword by Peter Gammons. Opening Day at Fenway Park in 2005 was one of the most memorable moments in New England sports history

Foreword by Peter Gammons. Opening Day at Fenway Park in 2005 was one of the most memorable moments in New England sports history. But the most memorable moment came when Johnny Pesky was introduced and walked out of the dugout toward the podium to be handed his ring. He received the biggest ovation of the entire ceremony-more than David Ortiz or Curt Schilling-and as the roar of the crowd rolled across The Fens, Torre and Jeter led the Yankees in what was a raucous, wild show of emotion. Johnny Pesky is one of the most respected people in our game, said Torre.

Journalist Robert Sullivan can't remember a day when he was not a Red Sox fan. It seems he was born a devotee; he certainly was raised to be one. From Ted to Yaz, the to-the-death pledge of fidelity to the celebrated team was a rite of passage for anyone growing up in semi rural Massachusetts in the 1950s and ’60s. Our Red Sox chronicles the love affair of a man, a family, and a community for “their” team. It’s about playoffs recently past and seasons long ago, about 1918 and 2004 and everything in between. It’s about families and sandlots and bleacher seats and press row, about tragedies remembered and frighteningly real — all happening in an orbit around the park called Fenway — as well as the luminous moments of camaraderie and triumph. Our Red Sox is a witty, gentle, moving memoir from deep inside a wonderful place called Red Sox Nation.

Robert Sullivan has given us an easy to read treasure by which to remember our beloved Red Sox. He reminds us of how we shared the trials and tribulations of the Sox with those closest to us-year after year. The irony is that Sullivan has been living and working in NY for over 20 years and has had to share his "Sox thoughts" with a small group of BOSOX fans in NY called "blowhards." In Sullivan's depiction of the ALCS you feel like you are in Yankee stadium with him experiencing the unbelievable happen. This is a classic that I read in one night because I couldn't put it down. I have passed it on to friends and family( just sox fans of course). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Quite frankly, I'm a little tired of all the so-called "Life-time Sox Fans" suddenly discovering their penchant for the pen, not to mention the almighty dollar, conjuring up any excuse for a Red Sox flavored literary treat that ultimately leaves the reader unsatisfied. Robert Sullivan, his family, and his friends have truly lived through the agony and ecstacy of what it takes to wear the "B" on your hat. His book, "Our Red Sox", is written with Mr. Sullivan's inimicable wit and style and shares not only lively commentary on a most memorable year, but also personal and touching insights on what it truly means to be a "Fan."
