Gerry Brown has been an editor of the ESPN Sports Almanac since 1994. A lifelong Red Sox fan who went to high school in the shadow of Fenway Park, he finally achieved bliss in 2004 after many years of pain and suffering. Fortunately for his kids, the experience has not been so difficult. He spends his nights and weekends coaching youth soccer and researching facts and figures for the almanac. During the day he works as a general editor at ESPN.com.
