About this Book

The first team to win the World Series in baseball's modern era is now officially a part of the Sports by the Numbers franchise!

THE TEAM: The Boston Red Sox dominated the early 20th century, winning five World Series titles before the Evil Empire tasted postseason success for the first time. With the 86-year nightmare that followed now behind them, Boston is dominant once again, having become the first team to win multiple World Series titles in the 21st century. The Sports by the Numbers team will take you back to the very beginning, to Huntington Avenue Grounds and names like Cy Young and Tris Speaker, and then one number at a time you will relive the greatest moments in Red Sox history.

THE FORMAT: The presentation created by the authors distinguishes Sports by the Numbers from everything else available today. Boston Red Sox is composed of ten chapters, each offering one hundred numbered "mini-stories"-facts, anomalies, records, coincidences, and enthralling lore and trivia from contemporary stars such as David Ortiz, Jason Varitek, and Dustin Pedroia, to Hall of Fame legends from the past like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Carl Yastrzemski, Carlton Fisk, and Wade Boggs. Each chapter begins with an introduction that highlights the many exciting stories found in these pages such as the first modern World Series in 1903, Teddy Ballgame's only World Series in 1946, the Impossible Dream in 1967, the postseason heartache in 1975 and 1986, and the postseason miracle in 2004.

INTERACTIVE: Numerical entries tagged with SBTN All-Star or SBTN Hall of Fame logos are scattered throughout this book. These logos indicate that more information is available at our web site Readers and sports fans can then visit our site and participate in the SBTN blogs and conversations regarding those numbers, creating an interactive community.
