Down the Line—A Behind The Scenes Documentary About Fenway Park

Down the Line—A Behind The Scenes Documentary About Fenway Park
Fenway Grounds Crew81 times this spring, summer and fall, 37-plus thousand people will descend on Kenmore Square in Boston and file into legendary Fenway Park to take in a Red Sox Game. By the time the first hotdogs have been eaten and the first pitch thrown, a dedicated clubhouse staff will have already put in a full-days work—preparing the field, washing the uniforms, making sure every glove, bat, and ball is in its right place. That dedicated “team behind the team” is celebrated in a new documentary, Down the Line, airing on the MLB Network and produced by a couple of lifelong Red Sox fans—Colin and Nick Barnicle—who join us to discuss the unsung people who quietly make every Red Sox home game a possibility.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
