In this collection of biographies you will read about the stars, regulars, journeymen and "cup of coffee" players that carried the Red Sox to the '75 pennant. From the one at-bat logged by Buddy Hunter to the heroics of Carlton Fisk, the entire lives of these Boston heroes are detailed from childhood to their post playing days careers.

Over 30 writers, researchers, and baseball enthusiasts from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) collaborated on this book to present the biographies of the men responsible for one of the greatest seasons in Boston's baseball history. With material gained from exclusive player interviews and the archives of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, this book contains many stories that have never been heard before.

Paperback, 158 pages includes player photographs and stats. Published November, 2005.



"The biographies cover more than just the payer's careers, but also their lives. This is something that hasn't been widely done, especially with players who aren't as well known. Probably the most unique thing is that every bio is treated with the same level of thoughtfulness -- Kim Andrew and Tim McCarver get the same number of pages and detail as Yaz and Rice. If they picked up a bat or ball that season, even once or twice, they're in there."
- David Southwick, book project coordinator (redsoxnation.net interview)
