This article is more than 11 years old.

With the Minnesota Twins in town to close out this baseball season, it evokes some powerful memories for long-time Boston fans: the 1967 "Impossible Dream" season.

On the last day of that season 40 years ago, the Red Sox clinched the American League pennant with a victory over the Twins at Fenway Park.

Tonight, Boston could claim a division title with another win over a Minnesota team on the same field.

Reporter Steve Tripoli recalled "The Impossible Dream Team" on the 30th anniversary of their landmark season. This morning, on the 40th, we revisit the moments.
