The Curse of the Bambino
- United States
More informationWith a wry sense of humor, Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy traces the bewitching story of the curse that has lain over the Red Sox since they sold Babe Ruth to the hated Yankees in 1920. He sheds light on classic Sox debacles, from Johnny Pesky's so-called hesitation throw to the horrifying dribbler that slithered between Bill Buckner's legs.
Lively and filled with anecdotes, this is baseball folklore at its best.
