The 1968 Boston Red Sox Start A New Era

The 1968 Boston Red Sox were a team coming off one of the most magical years in franchise history. After a decade of truly awful baseball and declining fan interest, the Red Sox won an improbable American League pennant in 1967 under first-year manager Dick Williams, buoyed by a Triple Crown year from Carl Yastrzemski. The Red Sox didn’t follow it up with another pennant in ’68, but they at least demonstrated that the winning baseball of “The Impossible Dream Year” was no fluke.
