Beginning with the origins of the name Red Sox, noted superfan and author Bill Nowlin weaves various tales that seemingly cover everything in franchise history.

Loaded with short stories, stats, streaks and lists, Red Sox Threads is an impeccably researched book that was written over a number of years. In it, obscure players are given their due, those that played for both the Red Sox and Yankees are listed, games that were forfeited or tied are remembered, and a tale is recounted about the time the Red Sox almost got arrested for attempting to play a game at Fenway Park that was to benefit the Red Cross.

Think of a thread to follow and there's a good chance it's unraveled in one of the book's 46 informative chapters.

From answering the question "who was the worst hitter in Red Sox history?" to detailing the best and worst Patriots Day games, no book written about the Red Sox will entertain and educate you as much as this one.
