In 1975, the Boston Red Sox played in what was the most-watched World Series in history, an epic seven-game battle with Cincinnati's Big Red Machine that captivated the nation's attention and revived baseball's lagging popularity. '75 tells the life stories of the 37 players who made up the Red Sox roster, from stars like Yaz, Fisk, and El Tiante, to the mop-up men and bench-warmers who were along for the ride. Some 48 authors, researchers, editors, fact-checkers, and baseball enthusiasts from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) have collaborated to present their work in the volume. Drawing on many exclusive interviews with players and the archives of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, '75 contains many stories not previously told and offers new details on the lives of these players who inspired so many in their time. This 2015 edition offers numerous items not contained in the original 2005 publication - full biographies of all of the coaches, the broadcast team, and owner Tom Yawkey - 10 new biographies. We have also added six game accounts (linking to SABR's Games Project, these are games written specifically for this book), as well as an essay on the ALCS, an essay on the World Series, and a "By the Numbers" piece. That makes a total of 19 new items - 10 bios, six game accounts, and three other items - in this edition. '75 remains a unique treasure for anyone who remembers Carlton Fisk waving his arms in the October night.
