The original media release from April 2009


What happens when a supportive mom becomes an addicted fan? How do you prepare a child for the death of a dream?

These are among the tough questions that Pamela Carey, mother of Tim and Todd Carey, answers in her new book Minor League Mom: A Mother’s Journey Through the Red Sox Farm Teams, released in April by Barking Cat Books.

Every “baseball mom” will be swept up as Carey helps them relive their mutual experience, only this time right to the edge of fulfilling the great dream at Fenway Park.

Carey and her husband, Charley, are residents of Delray Beach, Fla., and Westport, Mass. She holds a B.A. from Colby College and an M.A. from Columbia University Teachers College. A former information director for the Delaware Dept. of Education, she taught in Connecticut, Georgia and Maine. Later, she earned an advanced degree in interior design, and opened Interiors by Pamela in Cumberland, R.I. There, she taught adult education and served in many civic capacities.
