Retrieved 3 September Archived from the original on During the "impossible dream" of , Red Sox slugger and the batting champion, Carl Yastrzemski , led the Red Sox in his break-out season, transforming his young career and elevating himself from All-Star to Most Valuable Player.
He was also named to his fourth All-Star Game , which was the third straight year he received this honor. All of these team categories in which he led the club is overshadowed by his accomplishments in offensive statistics league-wide. Yastrzemski batted. Only one Red Sox player in history had reached this milestone Red Sox legend Ted Williams did it twice, in and It was the second consecutive year that the Triple Crown was achieved in the American League, Frank Robinson having won the honor in during his first year with the Baltimore Orioles.
It took 45 years before another triple crown was won, by Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers in In Yastrzemski was actually tied in the home run category with Harmon Killebrew of the Minnesota Twins that year. In the scope of this season that had begun with low expectations for the Boston Red Sox, the leadership and outstanding batting by Yastrzemski added to the "impossible" feeling that the season overall had overwhelmed the New England region.
Statistically, Yastrzemski dominated the American League, as he had his own team. He led the league in: batting average, runs batted in, home runs, runs, slugging percentage, on-base plus slugging, hits, on-base percentage, and total bases.
Red Sox second baseman Mike Andrews says of the times: "This chaotic war was going on while we were playing baseball. To think that baseball could be meaningful to these wounded soldiers was unbelievable. The four served two-week stints in the military reserve. He was one strike away from a no-hitter when Elston Howard , who would join the Red Sox later that season, hit a soft single into right-center field. Yastrzemski had saved Rohr's no-hit bid earlier in the game when he made an over-the-shoulder running-away catch deep in left field off the bat of Tom Tresh.
Following Howard's single, Rohr proceeded to retire the next batter for a 3—0 shutout. Four days later at Fenway Park , he beat the Yankees again, 6—1.
Mel Stottlemyre was charged with the loss. However Rohr only won one more major league game and was out of the majors after the season.
Right out of the gate, the Red Sox showed contender capabilities and entering August, were only two and a half games behind the league-leading Chicago White Sox and were eight games over. The Angels slumped in early September to fall out of the race, and the White Sox slumped in the next to last week of the season. Starting September—the last month of the season—the Red Sox sat atop of the American League, but were caught in a dog-fight with Chicago, Minnesota and Detroit.
The four teams were separated by half a game and all jumped between first to fourth sporadically. The pennant race was coming down to the last weekend of the season. Unfortunately for the White Sox, a three-game sweep at the hands of the Washington Senators left Chicago three games out of first place and the pennant scramble a three-team race. The Twins were in first place, ahead by one game over the Red Sox.
Both players hit one home run in the series, so Yastrzemski won the triple crown. Yastrzemski went 7 for 8 with a home run and 6 RBI in the two-game series. In the last game of the season, game winner Jim Lonborg got the start for the Red Sox vs. The Red Sox won the game 5—3 with a five-run sixth inning, and Lonborg finished the season with 22 victories. In Detroit, the Tigers won the first game of a double header vs. But their bullpen failed, and the Angels' Rick Reichardt hit a home run in an 8—5 Angel win.
The Red Sox had won their first American League pennant in 21 years. Although the Red Sox did not complete the unbelievable task and lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series , the overachieving club is considered among the greatest Red Sox teams in club history. Beyond Yastrzemski completing one of the best single season offensive campaigns, Red Sox players dominated the American League across the board.
The season marked the 40th anniversary of The Impossible Dream , which was honored and marked with Opening Day ceremonies featuring members of the Red Sox team and an hour-long documentary on NESN a regional sports network part-owned by the Red Sox called Impossible to Forget.
