Publisher's Summary

Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy traces the bewitching story of the curse that has lain over the Red Sox since they sold Babe Ruth to the hated Yankees in 1920.

He sheds light on classic Sox debacles, from Johnny Pesky's so-called hesitation throw to the horrifying dribbler that slithered between Bill Buckner's legs. Lively and filled with anecdotes, this is baseball folklore at its best.

    "Red Sox history."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book because this book has the Red Sox history from 1901-1990. The book goes into great detail about the playoffs and world series as well..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course my favorite character in the book is Babe Ruth. You will find interesting facts about him when he was with Boston.


    What about Ken Coleman’s performance did you like?

    I loved Coleman's performance. It adds to the book when a Red Sox broadcaster reads the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were parts of the book that made me laugh, and one part that made me angry, but since the team has recent success, it doesn't bother me anymore.
