'Fenway Fanatics' Profiles Fifty Red Sox Fans

Greg Pearson lives and works in Wisconsin, but his baseball roots are in New England. Before his current position at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, he was a journalist at the Manchester (CT) Herald and the Holyoke (MA) Transcript-Telegram. He grew up in Durham, Connecticut. Pearson has written a moving and comprehensive look at the heart and soul of Red Sox Nation. Fenway Fanatics: 50 Boston Red Sox Fans Tell Their Stories weaves it way from Boston (and Pops conductor Keith Lockhart) to Uzbekistan (and FenwayNation International Editor Ric Glaub) to bring readers a deeply personal understanding of "This Red Sox Thing" (with sincere apologies to Kay Corleone). FenwayNation is proud to have been a small part of this great book. In addition to the profile on Ric Glaub, there's a piece on Editor-In-Chief Ernie Paicopolos (who also wrote the Foreword to the book). You can pre-order it on Amazon HERE.
