In actual fact, the Red Sox have played in twelve World Series and won eight. Even during their stories 86-year drought, the Sox took four Series to Game Seven before losing.
Lavishly illustrated, From the Babe to the Beards is the result of another collaboration by Bill Nowlin and Jim Prime--each with more than a dozen Sox books to their credit. The book includes full game accounts of every one of the 74 Series games played (to date) and profiles a significant player from each game. Supplemented with dozens of photos and line scores from every game, the book will provide a solid and eminently readable companion as the team prepares for additional Series in the years to come.

"When you're a kid on the field playing 'It's the seventh game of the World Series...' it's all fun, but winning the World Series is a mental grind. Basically your whole season comes down to certain plays and everything you do means so much. It's full of added pressure because you want to do it for your teammates, for the guys who haven't won one, and for the fans. You want to win so bad for them. It's stressful and it's definitely a grind. This book describes in game-by-game detail what it takes to become a World Series champion." --Dustin Pedroia
"Nowlin and Prime--authors of almost twenty Red Sox-related books between them--do a fantastic job of shining a light on the glory of The Carmine Hose." - FenwayNation.com
"From The Babe To The Beards is one highly attractive literary package. In coffee table book format, the combination of top quality color and black & white pictures splashed throughout 285 pages on thick glossy paper makes this book a true collector's keeper. . . .
