A look back at the 2007 Boston Red Sox team a decade after their memorable postseason run that earned them their second championship of this century.
With it now being 2017, the Red Sox have another special anniversary to celebrate. It is now the 10 year anniversary of the team that won the second World Series in a four year span for the franchise.
When you ask a current Sox fan about memories they have of the World Series, there are two teams that are at the forefront. One is the 2004 team, who had the greatest comeback in professional sports in the ALCS. After that, the ’04 team swept the Cardinals to bring a championship to Fenway for the first time in 86 years.
Or it is the team, much like the city, that rallied around a terrible tragedy in April. The same team that started the phrase “Boston Strong” carried it throughout the playoffs. They brought it full circle during the parade, as Jonny Gomes draped the Boston Strong jersey over the trophy on the finish line.
It is very hard to win a championship in professional sports and have that team be “overlooked”, but the ’07 Sox were overlooked due to these wonderful stories. But the 2007 team had some wonderful moments that any fan cherished. Here are some of the highlights of the 2007 season.
