PDF Lost Summer

Book description

1967 Red Sox. There will never be another team quite like that one. Baseball has changed considerably since those days. Managers are now unable to tell players what to do. Players are wealthy beyond the wildest dreams of 1967 baseball players. That one baseball season during a year that had so much happening in America as well will never be matched.

All of the single men on the team are able to use the pull of Red Sox management to get out of the draft to be put on reserves so they will not have to go to war. At the same time as they were getting out of the war, I was wondering what it would feel like to be asked to kill a man. And what would I do about it.

Race issues come into play. The Red Sox were the last team to integrate. In 1957, their first black player was "Pumpsie" Green. In spring training, he had to stay at a hotel in Arizona that was 17 miles away because of segregation.

Book was an excellent mixture of baseball, behind the scenes stories, and cultural references.
