‘Fenway 1912’ by Glenn Stout

Author details historic park’s first season

Glenn Stout has long been respected among literary-minded baseball fans for his meticulously researched and graceful writing about the sport, particularly on that perpetually fertile subject, the Boston Red Sox.

Dick Bresciani ranks as the franchise’s respected official historian, but Vermont resident Stout has come to be viewed by many as the don of the unofficial chroniclers after his definitive and refreshingly unsparing “Red Sox Century,’’ co-written with Boston Sports Museum curator Richard A. Johnson in 2000.
