"Don't Let Us Win Tonight" On NESN Pre-Game

The 2004 Boston Red Sox team was a special bunch that didn't just break the 86-year World Series curse, but one that did it with personality and in inspiring fashion.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the championship squad, Allan Wood and Bill Nowlin wrote "Don't Let Us Win Tonight: An Oral History of the 2004 Boston Red Sox's Impossible Playoff Run." The book gives readers an inside look at the historic team, as the authors spoke to players, coaches, front-office personnel and even bat boys to bring every detail to life for the fans.
Tom Caron and Tim Wakefield talked to my co-author Bill Nowlin about the book before last night's game. Video here.

Not bad! Would have been better with your added perspective, of course ;-)

Caron talked too much.

This is only a part of the segment that aired.

Nowlin: "The conversation went on longer; there was - for instance - the story I brought up about Tim Wakefield being on the Yankee Stadium mound for ALCS 7 in 2003 and then getting to be there again in 2004, with the Red Sox going on to the World Series, and the call he took from Joe Torre right afterward."
