The Red Sox's 1975 World Series match-up against the Cincinnati Reds captivated the nation's attention and revived baseball's lagging popularity. Three decades later, this book remembers the 37 players and 6 coaches that put on a Red Sox uniform in 1975.
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.

"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."
