Red Sox Fans Flock to Shaughnessy Book Signing at Skybokx 109
Boston Globe sports columnist was at Skybokx 109 GastroSports last night signing copies of his latest book, a collaboration with Terry Francona on his time as manager of the Red Sox.
For two hours last night, Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy signed copies of his newest book, Francona: The Red Sox Years, which he co-authored with former Sox manager Terry Francona, at Skybokx 109 GastroSports.
Red Sox fans waited in line to purchase copies of the book and have Shaughnessy sign it. The veteran baseball writer also found time throughout the night to talk about Sox players from years past and present with fans.
"My wife [Nancy Kelley] is the biggest Red Sox fan ever," said Natick resident Dennis Porter, who attended with his daughter Kelley-Lyn. "She used to have season tickets for years. She's the superfan."
A marketing team from 98.5 The Sports Hub was also at the event. They handed out tee shirts and Bruins schedule magnets.
Skybokx 109 also passed out hors d'oeuvres, and set up a table with appetizers for attendees to enjoy.
"I like Terry," said Natick resident Jon Harris, who attended with his wife, Ellen, and who has already read part of the book. "I like what he's done here. I like his work ethic. I wish he was still here."
"He got a raw deal," added Ellen.
Said Jon, "It's a good book so far."
