Ian Browne was born in Detroit, but has spent nearly his whole life in Boston, and thus is soaked in the town's sport-crazy culture; he went to his first Red Sox game in 1980, and always wanted to see the Red Sox win a World Series and finally, in his third year covering the team for MLB.com, he did.Ian graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in journalism in 1995. He and his wife, Amy (a fellow graduate of Northeastern Univeristy School of Journalism) have three sons, Tyler, Ryan, and Casey. They live in West Roxbury, Mass. Of Idiots Revisited, he says, There is nothing like going down Memory Lane with an iconic team. Designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox.
It is both an in-depth remembrance of the team that broke the franchise's 86-year championship drought and a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most charismatic clubs in recent memory.--Paul Hagen, MLB.com
Overflows with rich details previously untold . . . Browne does a wonderful job filling gaps in that legendary season.--Dave O'Brien, Red Sox play-by-play
