If the Red Sox are truly a religion, then here's the bible: The Ultimate Red Sox Companion, a new encyclopedia with all the Red Sox information imaginable.
Let's start with statistics. From batting registers to pitching registers, from fielding stats to baserunning stats, this book provides year-by-year and career stats for every player to ever spend time in a Red Sox uniform. It includes team stats by year, manager, general manager, and even owner, as well as details on where the Red Sox ended up in each year's American League pennant race, the twenty-five greatest games in franchise history, and a year-by-year history of the team's broadcasters.
The Ultimate Red Sox Companion doesn't stop at the stats, though. Every year the Sox appeared in the playoffs gets a special look, with box scores, series evaluations, and statistics detailed for each. Red Sox greats get their due too, with profiles of each Red Sox all-star; winners of the Cy Young, MVP, and Triple Crown awards; and Hall of Famers who wore the uniform.
The book closely covers the history of the Red Sox farm system and player development, including in-depth information on both free-agent signings and draft picks—the good, the bad, and the ugly. If it's Red Sox-related, you'll find it in the Companion.
