Red Sox History: The unsung hero from every pennant-winning team
The biggest unsung hero of every Red Sox pennant-winning season
Any Red Sox fan can quickly rattle off the list of Red Sox postseason legends. David Ortiz. Jon Lester. Curt Schilling. Dave Henderson. Luis Tiant. In a sports-crazy city like Boston, those players are celebrated forever. Yet for every superstar who has come through on the biggest stage, there is a player who made key contributions that have been overlooked.
While it’s the stars and big personalities that will always get remembered the most we can’t forget those players that carried their weight outside of the spotlight. You can’t build a team on just big names and must have those guys that put in the work when the lights aren’t shining.
So today I want to shine some light on those players that played their part in delivering banners to Fenway Park. Without these players, history may have been very different for the Red Sox. Let’s look back at the biggest unsung hero from every Red Sox pennant winner in the last century.
