Overview

DESTINY 5 - RED SOX 4 declared one Boston headline after Bucky Dent's unlikely home run had cost the Red Sox the dramatic 1978 playoff game at Fenway Park against the Yankees for the Eastern Division title of the American League. No one has commented more eloquently and openly on destiny's victories over the Sox and their devoted fans through the years than writer and New York radio personality Jonathan Schwartz, who left his heart in Fenway at an early age. Schwartz's stirring and unusually intimate account of the beauty and heartbreak of that resplendent day in '78 appeared in Sports Illustrated in 1979. On the 25th anniversary of "the Dent game," Schwartz's memoir is now issued with an autobiographical essay in which the author reflects on the Sox, his life, and destiny's various line-ups in the decades since Dent.
With a forward by Boston Globe sports columnist Bob Ryan.
