Don’t Let Us Win Tonight celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Boston Red Sox’ unprecedented championship run in the fall of 2004 by taking fans behind the scenes and inside the dugout, bullpen, and clubhouse to reveal how it happened, as it happened.
Don’t Let Us Win Tonight highlights how, during a span of just 76 hours, the Red Sox won four do-or-die games against their archrivals, the New York Yankees, to qualify for the World Series and complete the greatest comeback in baseball history. Then the Red Sox steamrolled through the World Series, sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals in four games, capturing their first championship since 1918.
Don’t Let Us Win Tonight is brimming with revealing quotes from Boston’s front office personnel, coaches, medical staff, and players, including: Kevin Millar talking about his infectious optimism and the team’s pregame ritual of drinking whiskey, Dave Roberts revealing how he prepared to steal the most famous base of his career, and Dr. William Morgan describing the radical surgery he performed on Curt Schilling’s right ankle.
This is the ultimate keepsake for any Red Sox fan – the 2004 postseason story in the players’ own words.
