FICTION FOR BASEBALL FANS (especially the Red Sox Nation)...

September 3, 2005 - Last year about this time, I found myself putting a rush on a BOSTON T-Shirt for a teddy bear. This is a project that dragged on most of the summer as I tried to get the right font and colors together to give the impression that the teddy bear is a Red Sox fan without violating any trademarks. The rush came into effect when my boss pointed out that the Red Sox would likely make the play-offs and if we were to sell the teddy bears this year, now is the time to get the shirts done.

Though I may not follow baseball (or any other sport for that matter), some of our reviewers are fans and have done due dilligence in this area. So win or lose, if you want a little reading to go with your ball game, check out these titles:

Teammates by David Halberstam
