Visit the library for an author talk with Steve Babineau and Mike Shalin as they discuss their book "The Hometown Team."

For Red Sox fans eager to relive the glory days of their favorite players, "The Hometown Team" enables them to do just that, through the lens of longtime photographer Steve Babineau. This scrapbook-style book features fun and insightful commentary from veteran sports writer Mike Shalin and images of many BoSox legends.

From star and support players, to members of the grounds crew, Red Sox staff, alumni, and some opposing players, this book features Fenway's most memorable characters from the past forty years, with behind-the-scenes images of the ballpark during that time.
