The Boston Red Sox will play their home opener at Fenway Park this afternoon against the New York Yankees, but given the Sox horrific start to the 2011 season, we figured it was a good time to look back to happier days for Red Sox Nation, way, way back, to the early years of the 20th Century.

Author Tom Whalen has written a book about the glory years for Boston’s Olde Towne team, which included very significant contributions from Vermont-born players. His new book is called "When the Red Sox Ruled: Baseball’s First Dynasty, 1912-1918" and Whalen tells VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb those early teams deserve more attention.
