Promotional Plug. This blog has been getting a lot of traffic this week (2,522 visitors yesterday and 3,200+ today), so I want to direct all of you to the website I have for my book on the 1918 Red Sox.
I did six years of research, spoke to over a dozen descendants of the players, and interviewed a guy who worked as a vendor at Fenway Park in 1918 when he was 14 years old. Plus I look at the possibility that the 1918 World Series might have been fixed. Babe Ruth and the 1918 Red Sox is the first complete story of that infamous season and that team -- and it is 100% curse-free.
1918 should be a season we celebrate and embrace. It's a Red Sox story with a happy ending ... just like 2004 is going to be.
