1967 Red Sox: The Impossible Dream Season
by Raymond Sinibaldi
Arcadia Publishing, 2014
Featuring the Triple Crown MVP winner Carl Yastrzemski and Cy Young winner Jim Lonborg, the 1967 Boston Red Sox won the pennant by a game and played a thrilling World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Author Raymond Sinibaldi reminisces about that magical season through a series of over 200 photographs, many from his personal collection that have never before been published. Sinibalid begins with a chapter about the franchise and how it changed over the years, going from great to bad and then to “the impossible dream season” of 1967.
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words; these pictures are worth much more to baseball fanatics. To relive the season in Fenway Park with Yaz and Lonnie and Tony Conigliaro and Reggie Smith and Rico Petrocelli and the many other BoSox, to see them both in the field and in more candid moments in the clubhouse, it is a treasure that Red Sox fans and baseball fans will love.
