The Boston Red Sox Killer B's

Baseball's Best Outfield

Foreword by Fred Lynn

Learn about the 2018 World Series-winning Red Sox outfield!

Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Mookie Betts, three superb outfielders who are known collectively as the "Killer B's," have set Major League Baseball abuzz. Most notably, they made up the Red Sox World Series-winning outfield in 2018, a season in which Betts was voted the American League MVP and received a Gold Glove, Bradley earned ALCS MVP accolades and also a Gold Glove, and Benintendi featured one of the smoothest swings since Ted Williams to complement his defensive prowess. 

In The Boston Red Sox Killer B's, veteran authors Jim Prime and Bill Nowlin team up once again to cover the young careers of all three players, with special emphasis on the 2018 season. Along the way, Prime and Nowlin incorporate on- and off-field stories and interviews with teammates to offer fans a better understanding of how this trio has transformed into New England folk heroes and how they have developed a chemistry unmatched by any other outfield around the league. This book serves as the perfect gift for any Red Sox fan!
 

Jim Prime has authored or coauthored more than a dozen books on baseball including Ted Williams Hit List (with Ted Williams) and The Little Red (Sox) Book with Bill “Spaceman” Lee. He lives in New Minas, in the heart of the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.
