With 23 of their 95 wins coming on final at-bats, the 2003 Red Sox are down in the books among the most thrilling teams ever to call Fenway Park home. Cowboy Up: The Wild Ride of the 2003 Boston Red Sox features exclusive interviews with Nomar Garciaparra, Kevin Millar, Tim Wakefield, Todd Walker, Derek Lowe, Trot Nixon, Mike Timlin, and general manager Theo Epstein for an enthralling behind-the-scenes perspective. As the title suggests, this ride’s a wild one, as career years from Nixon and Jason Varitek complemented the leadership of Pedro Martinez, Lowe, and Garciaparra. With Millar serving as inspirational leader, David Ortiz evoking chants of “MVP,” and teammates Bill Mueller and Manny Ramirez dueling for the American League batting title, the Sox were an offensive juggernaut, ranking among baseball’s all-time greatest hitting teams. In addition to Wild Ride, the disc boasts a robust special features section, including featurettes on Fenway Park upgrades (including the building of the Green Monster seats), Millar explaining the origins of “Cowboy Up,” and even Ray Charles' moving rendition of “America the Beautiful” on Opening Day.
