The Curse of the Bambino

Wednesday, July 18, 7:00 pm
with David Kruh

2012 is the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park. Historian David Kruh will take visitors back to a time, when the team (just like today) captured the heart and soul of its citizens and was also (like today) inexorably intertwined with politics and politicians. Kruh will also discuss the real story behind Harry Frazee, his purchase of the Red Sox, and later of a young Babe Ruth. Then we’ll learn the differing reasons why, in 1920, the Babe was sold to the New York Yankees. You’ll be surprised at the answer.
