One of the greatest underdogs in baseball history, the 1967 Boston Red Sox defied odds of 100 to 1 against them to win the American League pennant. Paced by the marvelous all around play of Carl Yastrzemski, the pitching of Jim Lonborg, and the fiery play of the ill-fated Tony Conigliaro, who was almost killed by a beanball, Boston's surge to the top of the league was a memorable one. Red Sox radio announcer Coleman and writer Valenti have re-created an almost tediously detailed diary of that fabulous year. The all-too-familiar finaleBoston's losing the World Serieshardly diminishes the story. Because of the immense popularity of the Red Sox in New England, libraries in that area should definitely purchase. Samuel Simons, Memorial Hall Lib., Andover, Mass.
