Synopsis by Perry Seibert
The Boston Red Sox suffered for decades believing they were subject of "The Curse of the Bambino" after having never won a world series championship since they traded the legendary Babe Ruth to their archrivals, The New York Yankees. Nearly a century of frustration was wiped away when the 2004 Red Sox team managed a historic comeback -- beating the Yankees four straight times after losing the first three to them in the American League Champinoship series and then sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals to end the year as champs. Faith Rewarded: The Historic Season of the 2004 Boston Red Sox offers highlights from that amazing year and profiles the team's star players like Johnny Damon and ace pitchers Curt Schilling (who played with a horrible ankle injury) and Pedro Martinez.
