Barb Mantegani

Barb Mantegani grew up in Manchester, NH, and became a Red Sox fan the summer her (much) older brother broke his leg playing Pony League ball and spent his days in a chaise lounge listening to Red Sox games on the radio, with his adoring 5-year-old baby sister by his side. Barb departed New England for Virginia and a career in tax law in 1980 but has remained a member of Red Sox Nation, and watched the ball settle into Mientkiewicz's glove screaming into the phone with that same big brother who taught her how to love a team no matter what. Barb lives in McLean, VA with her husband, a Tigers fan.
