More Info
There is no other stadium like Fenway Park with its wooden seats, manual scoreboard, and the looming green monster; no other history that includes such an infamous trade, a curse, and a penchant for losing critical games; no other group of fans that measure up to the loyal Red Sox Nation. There is simply no other team that compares to the Red Sox.
This revised and updated version of 101 Reasons to Love the Red Sox is filled with reasons to celebrate Boston's best-loved team: the 2004 World Series championship, the beloved B, five World Series titles before 1919, Yawky Way, the legendary Ted Williams, Royal Rooters, the -Impossible Dream- season, Cy Young, and Big Papi. Vintage and modern photos, baseball cards, memorable stories, and sports trivia provide a portrait of the Red Sox from their very beginning to the present. The heart of the players and fans combined with the Red Sox' storied past truly make Fenway Park a field of dreams.

An insightful and . . . amusing look at the inner workings of pro football (The New York Times) from the bestselling author of Word Freak

In Word Freak, Stefan Fatsis invaded the insular world of competitive Scrabble players, ultimately achieving an expert-level ranking. Now, in his new book, he infiltrates a strikingly different subculture-pro football. After more than a year of preparation, Fatsis molded his fortyish body into one that could stand up-barely-to the rigors of NFL training. And for three months he became a placekicker for the Denver Broncos. Making the most of unprecedented access to an NFL team and its players, and drawing on his own personal experience, Fatsis with wry candor and hard-won empathy unveils the mind of the modern pro athlete and the workings of a storied sports franchise as no writer has before.

It was an epic downfall. In twenty-four seasons pitcher Roger Clemens put together one of the greatest careers baseball has ever seen. Seven Cy Young Awards, two World Series championships, and 354 victories made him a lock for the Hall of Fame. But on December 13, 2007, the Mitchell Report laid waste to all that. Accusations that Clemens relied on steroids and human growth hormone provided and administered by his former trainer, Brian McNamee, have put Clemens in the crosshairs of a Justice Department investigation.
Why did this happen? How did it happen? Who made the decisions that altered some lives and ruined others? How did a devastating culture of drugs, lies, sex, and cheating fester and grow throughout Major League Baseball's clubhouses? The answers are in these extraordinary pages.
"American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pastime" is about much more than the downfall of a superstar. While the fascinating portrait of Clemens is certainly at the center of the action, the book takes us outside the white lines and inside the lives and dealings of sports executives, trainers, congressmen, lawyers, drug dealers, groupies, a porn star, and even a murderer--all of whom have ties to this saga. Four superb investigative journalists have spent years uncovering the truth, and at the heart of their investigation is a behind-the-scenes portrait of the maneuvering and strategies in the legal war between Clemens and his accuser, McNamee.
This compelling story is the strongest examination yet of the rise of illegal drugs in America's favorite sport, the gym-rat culture in Texas that has played such an important role in spreading those drugs, and the way Congress has dealt with the entire issue. Andy Pettitte, Jose Canseco, Alex Rodriguez, and Chuck Knoblauch are just a few of the other players whose moving and sometimes disturbing stories are illuminated here as well. The New York "Daily News" Sports Investigative Team has written the definitive book on corruption and the steroids era in Major League Baseball. In doing so, they have managed to dig beneath the disillusion and disappointment to give us a stirring look at heroes who all too often live unheroic shadow lives.

Despite the incredible popularity of NASCAR stock car racing, most books on this colorful, fast-paced sport have been dull, cliched, and disappointing. American Stock Car Racers is a notable exception, as it combines the historical perspective and insight of writer Ben White (editor of Winston Cup Illustrated magazine) and the remarkable photography of Don Hunter. Their portraits of the men who have shaped the sport are enlightening and captivating.This book profiles over 40 NASCAR legends including moonshiner-turned-champion Junior Johnson, sly mechanical genius Smokey Yunick, hard-nosed yet soft-hearted champion Dale Earnhardt, and pioneer Fireball Roberts.Most books on NASCAR can't compete for fans' souvenir dollars; fans will buy a Rusty Wallace jacket rather than a hackneyed book. American Stock Car Racers is the distinct exception, combining brilliant photography with text that goes well beyond the cliches and stereotypes.
