Boston Red Sox fans can hear stories about historic Fenway Park and the baseball team from sportswriter Harvey Frommer at the Greenwich Library on May 14.
Frommer, an oral historian and author of many sports books, will discus his book, Remembering Fenway Park: An Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Boston Red Sox, touching on the teams personnel, ballpark and history. He will show slides of priceless historical photographs, many of which have never before been published. The narrative fuses present and past Red Sox players and opponents, fans, media, ballpark workers, team executives, a nun, a monsignor and a bishop.
Frommer, known for his encyclopedic knowledge of sports history, is the author of 33 sports books, including The New York Yankee Encyclopedia, Shoeless Joe and Ragtime Baseball, Growing Up Baseball with Frederic J. Frommer" and Rickey and Robinson: the Men Who Broke Baseballs Color Line.
