FRANCONA The Red Sox Years

by | Read by Jeff Gurner

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

BOSTON GLOBE sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy teams up with Terry Francona to recount the story of the manager's tenure with the Boston Red Sox. It was a period of highs (two World Series titles) and lows (a deteriorating relationship with owners). Narrator Jeff Gurner offers a steady hand throughout a collaboration that has no dull moments. Taking advantage of Shaughnessy's pacing and Francona's honest insight, Gurner occasionally offers slight vocal imitations--he portrays David Ortiz especially well. His tone projects intense emotions when appropriate. Red Sox fans will enjoy the stories behind some of their team's greatest years. Cleveland Indians fans will love the wonderful insights into their first-year manager. And Gurner's narration will help draw in any person interested in what a manager endures--on and off the field.
