Amazing Tales from the 2004 Boston Red Sox Dugout is a different kind of look back at the incredible championship season-through the eyes of the players involved. It is packed full of anecdotes, quotes, and perspectives from each member of the team, presented in the context of their on-field heroics. The book includes intimate snapshots of particularly relevant moments-rare glimpses behind the scenes-in order bring you back to the moment. This was a group of bona fide characters who showed great character in facing every challenge put before them-including overcoming a three games to none deficit in the ALCS against their archrivals.
The season had more than its share of the humorous, the poignant, and the downright weird. Thanks to an unconventional and irreverent-but effective-approach to the game, the underdog 2004 Red Sox captured the imagination of New England and the entire nation. In their quixotic quest, they defied an ancient curse and slew the hated Yankees en route to the October Classic and a meeting with the St. Louis Cardinals.
