About this title

Synopsis:

The Impossible Dream became a fitting moniker for the Boston Red Sox season of 1967, a summer that still evokes memories of a time that united a city and transformed a franchise. Led by 1967 MVP Carl Yastrzemski and Boston’s first Cy Young Award winner, Jim Lonborg, the youngest Red Sox team since the days of Babe Ruth went from ninth to first place in what remains the closest pennant race in baseball history. Tony Conigliaro, Rico Petrocelli, George Scott, Reggie Smith, Billy Rohr, Jerry Adair, and their teammates became household names to the Fenway Faithful as they carried the Red Sox to their first World Series in 21 years under manager Dick Williams.

From the Author:

On October 1, 1967 I went with my dad to Fenway Park and watched as our beloved Red Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins to capture their first pennant in 21 years! I was 14 years old. While we were there my brother was fighting in the jungles of Vietnam. Dad's been gone for 16 years now and that day shared with him grows exponentially in meaning to me with each passing year. When I began this book I was struck by the fact that what was the Impossible Dream summer for the Red Sox of 1967, was for many of their fans, the nightmare of Vietnam. Within the book I touch upon that dichotomy and it is my hope that as you read and relive that wonderful Red Sox summer, you remember all those who served, fought and died in Vietnam.
