Advance Praise for THE 50 GREATEST RED SOX GAMES
"Here's the deal. It costs about $43 for a grandstand seat at Fenway Park these days, unless you buy the ticket from a scalper, which makes the cost $2 million. If you went to just 50 games of any dimension that means the cost would be either $2,150 or $100 million. Here, for considerably less, you get the 50 greatest games the Red Sox ever played plus tight prose, snappy anecdotes, and reasoned judgments. Bargains like this don't come often. Plus, you don't even have to pay for parking."
--Leigh Montville, author of Ted Williams: The Biography of an American Hero

"It's a daunting task, but Cecilia Tan and Bill Nowlin have come up with the Red Sox greatest hits album, the box set. Enjoy."
--Dan Shaughnessy, author of Reversing the Curse

"Old Towne Team fans will think they have died and gone to heaven with The 50 Greatest Red Sox Games in their grasp. Informative, exciting, entertaining . . . Cecilia Tan and Bill Nowlin have done a good deed for the Fenway faithful."
--Harvey Frommer, coauthor of Red Sox vs. Yankees: The Great Rivalry

From the Inside Flap:

Where were you when Roger Clemens notched his first 20-strikeout game? Did your grandfather regale you with moral lessons to be gleaned from the last day of Ted Williams's phenomenal .406 season? Did you groan in accustomed agony as that weak little nubber rolled between Bill Buckner's legs? Are you still energized by reliving that incredible day—October 27, 2004—when the curse was shattered and the Red Sox won the World Series after 86 years of dashed hopes?

Every Red Sox fan cherishes memories that will never be forgotten and wonders what it would have been like to be in the park for other outstanding moments from the team's checkered past. Covering an entire century of Boston baseball, The 50 Greatest Red Sox Games lets you relive the very best (and agonizingly worst) moments experienced by the team that has lifted more spirits and broken more hearts than any other sports franchise on the planet. From history-making plays to incredible individual achievements, from regular season games to post-season knuckle-biters, Cecilia Tan and Bill Nowlin recreate the suspense, excitement, and drama of every contest—and you're sitting right behind home plate when the action begins.

Drawing upon in-depth research, including contemporary pre- and post-game player interviews, Tan and Nowlin devote each action-packed chapter to a single, legendary game. They quote newspaper and magazine accounts of the day, cite personal recollections from players and managers, and provide box scores, stirring vintage photos, and comments about the people, places, and events that gave each game a permanent place in Red Sox lore. You'll hear from such Red Sox greats as Carl Yastrzemski, Carlton Fisk, Fred Lynn, Bill Monbouquette, Jim Lonborg, Dwight Evans, Nomar Garciaparra, and Johnny Damon, to name just a few. You'll also meet some of the not-so-famous figures who contributed to unforgettable moments in Sox history.

Be there as:

  • Babe Ruth hurls a stunning, 14-inning complete game to win Game 2 of the 1918 World Series
  • The struggling 1927 Bosox outgun "Murderers' Row" to come from behind and beat the Yankees in 18 innings
  • The greatest hitter who ever lived slams a home run in his last major league at-bat—for the second time
  • Yaz and Gentleman Jim bring the magic back by winning the "Impossible Dream" pennant
  • Luis Tiant records a titanic victory to even the 1975 Series
  • Bucky Dent hits "the homer"
  • Cy Young meets Cy Old in the 1999 ALCS
  • The Red Sox, with their backs to the wall, take four straight from the Yankees to win the 2004 ALCS

Written with the enthusiasm, spirit, and grit of die-hard Red Sox fans, The 50 Greatest Red Sox Games captures all the mania, mystery, and underdog tenacity of the Olde Towne Team.
