Synopsis

Johnny Damon by Brian O'Connell

This is the true life story of a baseball great. What will Johnny do? That was the question on the lips of Boston Red Sox fans - otherwise known as Red Sox Nation - during the 2004 season. That year, Johnny Damon and his band of self-proclaimed Idiots stunned the baseball world by staging a historic comeback against their longtime rivals, the New York Yankees, in the American League Championship Series. Shortly after, they routed the St. Louis Cardinals for Boston's first title in 86 years. Damon was a chief architect of that championship before leaving the Red Sox and signing with their bitter rivals in New York. Johnny Damon explores the life of this great player, who is known as much for his charisma and matinee-idol looks as he is for his athletic talent.
