Today I just want to say thanks to all of you who are following and reading this blog! The excitement is building as we head to the 2012 baseball season and Fenway Park’s 100th birthday!
For me, there is the added excitement as the final edit of Images of America, Fenway Park, has been completed and it is on its way to print!
It will be available April 9, 2012, just days before Fenway’s actual 100th birthday game on April 20th. It is available, at a discount for preorder at Amazon,
And directly from the publisher as well, http://www.arcadiapublishing.com/9780738576886/Fenway-Park
It is a pictorial history of Fenway Park’s first 100 years with about 40 photos never before published. So if you like what you have seen and read here, you will love what you will see and read there! Not one photo you have seen on this blog, is in this book but Fenway’s story unfolds through the eyes and hearts of a plethora of different photographers, past and present. So if you love baseball, if you love history, if you love the Red Sox, if you love Fenway, you will love Images of America, Fenway Park! A tip of the Fenway cap to my co-authors David Hickey and Kerry Keene; we made it without killing each other, close but not quite, you’re the best!
Happy Birthday Fenway.
And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, February 13, 2012.
