Boston is a city known for its storied sports heritage. This book recounts the stories behind the triumphs—and occasional setbacks—of the athletes, coaches and teams that have combined to make Boston: America’s Best Sports Town.

Beyond the storied franchises, each bearing decades of tradition, are truly iconic stars, unforgettable victories, and yes, at times, shattering defeats. These games have taken place in venerable ballparks and arenas, filled with passionate fans who carry the city’s unique sports history as part of their own DNA.
