162-0: IMAGINE A RED SOX PERFECT SEASON

By Mark Cofman/Foreword by Tony Massarotti

 

CONTACT: Bill Ames, Triumph Books, 312.252.1248, b.ames@triumphbooks.com

 

Even the greatest baseball teams lose 30 percent or more of their games each season.  The Boston Red Sox have put together some very impressive regular season records in recent history, including their World Series championship teams in 2004 and 2007; however, they never won more than 65.3% percent of their games during those two years.

 

But imagine, Boston fans, a year in which the Red Sox never lose a single game.  An undefeated regular season including a season-long sweep of the dreaded Yankees...perfection at its greatest!  Author and former Boston journalist Mark Cofman envisions just that in his new book 162-0: Imagine a Red Sox Perfect Season

 

Complete with a foreword from Boston Globe writer Tony Massarotti, Cofman chronicles the most memorable victories on each and every single day of the baseball calendar season, including:


  • The first ever game at Fenway - a win against New York - on April 20, 1912
  • Roger Clemens striking out a record 20 Mariners on April 29, 1986
  • Cy Young chalking up the only perfect game in Red Sox history on May 5, 1904
  • Cancer survivor Jon Lester's no-hitter against the Royals on May 19, 2008
  • Ted Williams home run in his career finale on September 28, 1960
  • Carl Yastrzemski winning the AL Triple Crown on October 1, 1967

 

Ranging from games with incredible historical significance to great individual Red Sox achievements, 162-0: Imagine a Red Sox Perfect Season is a classic must-have for Sox fans that reflects back on the greatest moments in Boston Red Sox lore and ponders the impossible...a perfect season both at Fenway Park and on the road.
