Rooters: The Birth of Red Sox NationA feature-length documentary chronicling 100-years of Red Sox history and the makings of Red Sox Nation is in post-production and could air as early as this summer.

The documentary, which will most likely be aired on NESN and entitled, “Rooters: The Birth of Red Sox Nation” starts as early as 1897 with the Royal Rooters, and goes up to present day. As reported by the Boston Herald:

“(They) really formed the backbone for American sports fans as we know them today,” said Peter Nash, a producer and writer of the upcoming film and the author of the book “Boston’s Royal Rooters.”

“If you go to a Red Sox game, or any game in the major league, and you see some fan holding a megaphone or some kind of a noise maker, they were the first to do it,” Nash said.

The documentary will follow the history of Sox fans from the early days to the 1967 “Impossible Dream” season to the present day. Individual stories of families of avid fans passing down a passion for the team will be part of the film, Nash said.

The film will also include older footage of the likes of Peter Gammons and Johnny Pesky.
