Harvey Frommer: Goodbye, damn Yankees! Hello, cursed Red Sox! PODCAST INTERVIEW

Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of Tampa Bay Rays fans who wonder how many years of pasting the BoSox it will take for Harvey to write ‘Remembering Tropicana Field’… in the new new media capitol of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!

[amazon_link id=”1584798521″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ][/amazon_link]As a Tampa Bay Rays fan, I wish we had a stadium as beautiful and legendary as Boston’s Fenway Park.

But I take solace in knowing that just 13 years into its life as home of the Red Sox, even Fenway had its faults, right?

Like Frommer’s previous book – Remembering Yankee StadiumRemembering Fenway Park: An Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Boston Red Sox captures all the pageantry, successes and humiliation that make a ballpark a home for legions and generations of fans.

HARVEY FROMMER audio excerpt: “The Red Sox people in charge knew of me as the guy wrote all this Yankees stuff. Red Sox Nation welcomed me. I never met a group of fans or players as nice as I met in Boston. My wife said, ‘Why don’t you convert?’ … Nobody believes me, but I love the Red Sox!” 

You can LISTEN to this interview with sportswriter HARVEY FROMMER, author of REMEMBERING FENWAY PARK, by clicking the audio player above!

In his now familiar style of patching together a quilt of memories from ballplayers, managers, executives, fans and sportswriters alike, Frommer unwinds all the drama and even some of the silliness – I’m looking at you Manny Rodriguez, relieving yourself behind the scoreboard during a lull in the action – that gives character to concrete and steel.

I’m not a Red Sox fan, but if I were, I’d want to find a copy of Remembering Fenway Park under my pillow in time for opening day.
