Since 2002, Boston's four major pro sports franchises have combined to win 10 championships, a distinction to which no other American city can lay claim over that span. But success is hardly new for these teams, each of which possesses a long, rich history.

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.

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.
