The Impossible Dream Revisited

Here is a link to the Baseball Library's summary of that 1967. Provides day-to-day scores, winning & losing pitchers. That 'magical season' actually began for the Sox on July 14 when Jim Longborg (12-3) beat the Baltimore Orioles. This was the beginning of their fabulous 10-game winning street. They were hovering around .500 with a record of 42-40 and this was just after the All Star Game.

I had lived in MA until 1962 and moved to New Jersey, but I returned each summer until 1968. New England was electric!!! Everywhere you went people were talking about the Red Sox as they continued to win and suddenly were in a position to make a run at the pennant.

The page lists the players and their season averages. Really brings back memories. The Red Sox were born again!!!! Check out that link...there's a lot of good stuff there to read. You'll enjoy it. However, the season 'summaries' only go up to 2003, but WE ALL CAN REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED OVER THE NEXT 4 SEASONS.
