Did you know that as a team the Red Sox have hit a home run in 65 major league ballparks? Or that the team's all-time home run leader against the Royals is Dwight Evans, who victimized Kansas City pitching 27 times? Such factoids fill the book that is appropriately known as The Ultimate Red Sox Home Run Guide.

The BoSox have hit a lot of bombs - 11,630, in fact, by 576 batters - during their century then some years of existence and this book pays homage to them all, or at least the ones that occurred during the 1901-2008 period that the guide covers.

Lots of lists (nearly 150 of them) and statistics are compiled over 10 chapters that cover the subject of Red Sox homers like you can't believe, but will be glad the authors of this fun and fact-filled guide did.

From the notable to the nobodies, the Boston sluggers who have touched 'em all after clearing a wall (in most cases) are often remembered in fascinating detail and the book itself is a well-done home run.
