Who better to rank the best Red Sox of all time than, yes, the president of Red Sox Nation himself! Here, Jerry Remy does just that—forty-five players in all, from the likes of Wade Boggs, Rick Burleson, Tony Conigliaro, Dennis Eckersley, Dwight Evans, to Ted William and Carl Yastrzemski, to early-era greats such as Cy Young, Babe Ruth, Jackie Jensen, and Johnny Pesky. In a short chapter on each, Remy explains why the player was chosen, and his detailed statistics go well beyond batting averages. Other chapters cover the 1967, 2004, and 2007 teams, as well as historic moments, such as Dave Roberts’s steal.
One of baseball's most beloved commentators picks the forty-four most heroic Red Sox players ever. Eminently readable, painstakingly researched, and imbued with the rich history of the Boston Red Sox, Jerry Remy’s Red Sox Heroes is a must for all members of Red Sox Nation.
