From The Red Sox Fan Handbook

Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the Red Sox Fan Handbook: Everything you need to know to be a Red Sox Fan... or to marry one. The Handbook went through three editions in book form (and is still in print from Rounder Books), but putting the contents in wiki form will allow them to be updated more quickly, and will allow more interaction with readers. It will also allow us to fit a lot more player entries that there wasn't room for in the book edition. Other new features include a Red Sox Birthday Calendar that you can subscribe to through Google Calendar.

Come in, browse, enjoy, and share your own thoughts. Any registered user (it's free) can revise player entries; the site itself is edited and moderated by the same people who created the book versions of The Red Sox Fan Handbook.
