Whatever you think of Johnny Damon now, there’s no denying that his baseball abilities were key components in the sacred 2004 Red Sox campaign. Damon and the class of ’04 will long be remembered as one of the greatest teams in the history of this storied franchise. They broke the 86-year curse and did it in wild fashion.
The ALCS that season is the most important series in this ball club’s history – a series that absolutely had it all. One part that is often forgotten about in all the madness that October, however, is Damon’s Game Seven heroics.
