The Boston Red Sox are one of the most iconic teams in Major League Baseball, with nine World Series championships and countless greats who have donned the Sox uniform. In If These Walls Could Talk: Boston Red Sox, former player and longtime broadcaster Jerry Remy provides insight into the team’s inner sanctum as only he can. Readers will gain the perspective of players, coaches, and personnel in moments of greatness as well as defeat, making for a keepsake no fan will want to miss.

He is a four-time New England Emmy Award winner and was named Massachusetts Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association in 2004. He is the author of Watching Baseball: Discovering the Game Within the Game and Red Sox Heroes: The RemDawg’s All-Time Favorite Red Sox, Great Moments, And Top Teams. He has also written five books in the Hello, Wally! series for children.
Hot dogs will be provided by Michael’s Deli, with those sales and a portion of proceeds from the event from both Brookline Booksmith and Triumph Books to be donated to the ALS Foundation in honor of the book’s late co-author and beloved baseball writer Nick Cafardo.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
