The Red Sox Before the Babe: Boston's Early Days in the American League, 1901-1914; McFarland, 2009.

Until the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series in 86 years, they were jokingly referred to as victims of the fictitious Curse of the Bambino. Yet in their first fourteen years of existence, the team was the finest baseball team in the land, with rosters filled with such stars as Jack Chesbro, Big Bill Dinneen, Smoky Joe Wood and Tris Speaker, players who repeatedly brought championships to the team even before Babe Ruth came to town. Author Donald Hubbard has been nominated for a Ritter Award for this book. See Awards.
