Dan Shaughnessy Biography

A member of the Globe staff since 1981, Shaughnessy has been named Massachusetts Sportswriter of the Year eleven times and nine times has been voted one of America’s top 10 sports columnists by AP Sports Editors. He has written 12 books, including New York Times Best Seller “Francona”, “The Curse of the Bambino”, and “Senior Year”, and appears on numerous radio and television shows.

His Curse of the Bambino details the travails of the Boston Red Sox and their search for a World Series championship after selling Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. Shaughnessy has also written Fenway: A Biography in Words and Pictures and finally Reversing the Curse, which details the historic 2004 Boston Red Sox Championship Team.

In an October 2005 column he revealed information detailing nuances of the relationship between Theo Epstein and Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino, which may have contributed to Epstein's resignation as Red Sox General Manager. Shaughnessy and his fellow Globe writers have been accused by writers at the Boston Herald of routinely reporting information leaked from the Red Sox front office (the Red Sox are 17 percent-owned by The New York Times Company, the Globe's parent company). In the weeks leading up to Epstein's decision, Sox owner John Henry himself said the leaks "had to stop".

Dan Shaughnessy is referred to by many posters on the Sons of Sam Horn site as "CHB," in reference to a 2000 incident in the Sox clubhouse between centerfielder Carl Everett and Shaghnessy's Globe colleague, Gordon Edes. Everett told Edes to leave the clubhouse and to take his "curly-haired boyfriend"  Shaughnessy  with him.

Shaughnessy graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.

Shaughnessy is a regular guest on Mike Barnicle's weekday radio show, airing on WTKK.

A dedicated blog has been established to document the miscues and problems with his work.
