Since the Boston Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to their hated rivals, the New York Yankees, thus starting the so called “Curse of the Bambino”, they hadn’t won a championship. Time after time, the Red Sox had their championship hopes taken away from them. However, when the team goes on sale, a group of men become determined to turn that around, and take the team to the promised land once again.
From page one, author Seth Mnookin chronicles the team’s past, to their victorious present, and their title chasing future. The author’s exclusive clubhouse access provides the reader with hundreds of never before seen interviews. From struggles to triumphs, the reader gets an in depth look at how every member of the team felt about it.
I’d recommend Feeding the Monster for sports fans in 9th grade and up.
