FN Trivia Contest Is Chance At New Sox Book

Thanks to author Raymond Sinibaldi and the good folks at Arcadia Publishing, FenwayNation can offer our readers a chance to win a copy of the great new book, 1967 Red Sox—The Impossible Dream Season. The book has dozens of amazing images from that great campaign—the one that truly launched Red Sox Nation. As author Sinabaldi says, "On October 1, 1967 I went with my dad to Fenway Park and watched as our beloved Red Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins to capture their first pennant in 21 years! I was 14 years old. While we were there my brother was fighting in the jungles of Vietnam. Dad's been gone for 16 years now and that day shared with him grows exponentially in meaning to me with each passing year. When I began this book I was struck by the fact that what was the Impossible Dream summer for the Red Sox of 1967, was for many of their fans, the nightmare of Vietnam. Within the book I touch upon that dichotomy and it is my hope that as you read and relive that wonderful Red Sox summer, you remember all those who served, fought and died in Vietnam." Look for our next FenwayNation Trivia Contest this weekend for your chance to win a copy of this fantastic book.
