Neil Swidey has feature story in the Globe Magazine, Being Nomar as “the famously tightlipped shortstop opens up on everything from the angst of his off-season to his relationships with his family, his bosses, and his fans.

He is a slugger. Art Davidson looks at Pokey Reese, the quarterback of the Sox infield.
