A photographic journey through Red Sox History

Spring Training

Ted Williams and Babe Ruth

1974 omen

Carl Yastrzemski

When Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Dick Thompson snapped this prophetic photograph, the 1974 Red Sox were just about to start the slide that saw them squander an eight-game September division lead as they ultimately finished in third place, seven games adrift of the Orioles and five behind the runner-up Yankees.


Carl Yastrzemski bids farewell to Boston after twenty-three seasons following a pregame retirement ceremony on Saturday, October 1, 1983. He retired with seven Red Sox career records, including those for hits (3,419), doubles (646), runs (1,816), and RBIs (1,844). More important, he was an incredible clutch performer who batted .352 in two World Series.


Pedro Martinez

Righthander Pedro Martinez arrived in Boston in November 1997 via a trade with the Montreal Expos for minor leaguers Carl Pavano and Tony Armas, Jr. He soon electrified Fenway Park while winning nineteen and twenty-three games in his first two seasons with the Red Sox. In 1999 he became only the third Red Sox pitcher to win the Cy Young Award.
