Littlefield: On Opening Day

This article is more than 12 years old.

Fenway Park opens the home season honoring the Red Sox of 40 years ago. The 1967 club is forever known as the "Impossible Dream" team because they defied the odds to win Boston's first American League pennant in 21 years. This afternoon, many of those players will return to their old home field. You'll see them in the first pitch ceremony.

Every season, the Sox first home game is rich with ceremony and tradition. WBUR'S sports commentator Bill Littlefield reflects on the promise of this year's Opening Day.
