Biographies of 37 players and 6 coaches
In 1975 the Red Sox played in the most-watched World Series in history, losing an epic seven-game battle with the Cincinnati Reds that captivated the nation's attention and revived baseball's lagging popularity.

But this is not a book about the 1975 Red Sox season. This is a book about the players and coaches on that team - every one of them. From the collection of 37 player biographies you will read how the members of the '75 Red Sox arrived by various routes to contribute to the team, put together one of the greatest seasons in Boston history, and then go their separate ways.

You will read about the stars, regulars, journeymen and "cup of coffee" players that carried the Red Sox to the pennant. From the two at-bats registered by Kim Andrew to the heroics of Yaz, the entire lives of these Boston heroes are detailed from childhood to their post playing days careers.

A total of 32 writers, researchers and baseball enthusiasts - most affiliated with the Boston chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) - joined forces to present these biographies, the product of many exclusive interviews with players and the archives of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This book contains many stories that have never been heard before and is enhanced with player photographs, stats and pictures of memorabilia from the glorious '75 season.
