Author Series: The Fenway Effect

Cover of The Fenway EffectBoston Red Sox history has intersected with the history of Boston, through the “Curse of the Bambino,” the military service of Ted Williams, and the Boston Marathon bombing. The Fenway Effect chronicles these stories and many others that have built the incredible saga of the Boston Red Sox and their iconic ballpark.

Author David Krell tries to answer a number of questions: How did Cheers depict the passion of Boston’s sports fans? Why is Narragansett beer so important to New England? What’s the architectural impact of The Teammates—the statue of Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky, Ted Williams, and Dom DiMaggio—that stands outside of Fenway Park? The answers are insightful, funny, and heartwarming.

The program begins at 1 pm in the Bullpen Theater and virtually. There will be a book signing in the Library Atrium following the program.

Virtual participants may join us live on the Hall of Fame's Facebook page.
