Annotations for Fenway Fever


Baker & Taylor
A tribute to Fenway Park's 100th anniversary follows the story of young "Stats" Pagano, who despite a heart defect devotes himself to collecting statistics, working at his family's struggling hot-dog stand located just outside the iconic ballpark and unifying the city in the face of a Red Sox losing streak that the team's ace pitcher attributes to the famed "Curse of the Bambino." By the author of The Boy Who Saved Baseball.

Happy 100th Birthday, Fenway Park!

"Stats" Pagano may have been born with a heart defect, but he lives for three things: his family's hot dog stand right outside fabled Fenway Park, his beloved Red Sox, and any baseball statistic imaginable. When the family can no longer make ends meet with the hot dog stand, life becomes worrisome for Stats. Then the Sox go on a long losing streak and the team's ace pitcher--and Stats's idol--becomes convinced the famed Curse of the Bambino has returned. Stats just has to help . . . but how? As the Sox faithful sour on their team, Stats forms a plan that ultimately unifies an entire city and proves that true loyalty has a magic all its own.

In honor of Fenway Park's 100th birthday, baseball novelist John H. Ritter delivers an inspiring tale for the sports fan in each of us, regardless of team allegiance.
