 Mel Parnell
On the next-to-last weekend of the season, Boston swept a three-game series from the Bronx Bombers at Fenway, and the Red Sox were one game ahead of the Yanks going into the final two games of the year at Yankee Stadium.
Parnell, who spent his entire 10 years with the Red Sox, ended up with a 70-30 lifetime record inside the fabled confines of Fenway.
Parnell also had high praise for Doerr, Boston's second baseman for 14 years, and Pesky, a third baseman in 1949.

 New York Yankees - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sudden-death playoff game between the two teams was held to decide who would go on to the pennant, with the game being held at Boston's Fenway Park (because the Red Sox had won more head-to-head games between the two teams that season).
The Yankees won the day, driving a stake through the hearts of their rivals' fans when Bucky Dent drove a game-winning home run over the "Green Monster," one of several emotional moments in the team's history that had Red Sox fans wondering if their team was under some kind of a curse.
The 2005 season for the New York Yankees thus far has not ushered in any memories of the dynasty days.

 Curse of the Bambino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1949, the Red Sox needed to win just one of the last two games of the season to win the pennant, but lost both games to the Yankees.
The Curse of the Bambino (1918– 2004) was an urban myth or scapegoat cited as a reason for the failure of the Boston Red Sox baseball team to win the World Series for 86 years after they sold Babe Ruth, sometimes called The Bambino, to the New York Yankees.
In 2004, the Red Sox met the Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

While the Boston Red Sox were in the midst of their 86-year championship drought, the city of Portland went without professional baseball for a 45-year span from 1949 until 1994, when Maine’s largest city was awarded an Eastern League expansion franchise.
With a seating capacity of 6,975 and a record number of season ticket accounts, Portland has sold out the majority of their home games as a Red Sox affiliate.

 dOc DVD Review: Red Sox vs. Yankees: The Ultimate Rivalry (2006)
The first is a 1949 newsreel, with highlights of the Yankees beating Boston on the last day of the season to win the pennant; the next is the Red Sox returning the favor in 2004, with the final out in Game 7.
A huge amount of time is devoted to the 2005 season as well, but somebody missed a memo, and we got an Angels/White Sox ALCS instead—it's all rather anti-climactic, and the MVP race between Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz just doesn't have the same kind of juice.
And then of course there's 2004, eighty-six years in the making—the Yankees blew a 3-0 series lead in the most ignominious choke in sports history, and for the first time since 1918, your Boston Red Sox were once again world champions.

 The Whole Was Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts -- The Hardball Times
Stengel tabbed Reynolds to pitch the penultimate game of the 1949 season against the Boston Red Sox.
Ed Lopat, Allie Reynolds, and Vic Raschi will likely never have plaques bearing their likenesses and accomplishments, but they may well be Exhibit A of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
Reynolds still had the maddening tendency to beat himself (Reynolds walked more hitters than he struck out in both years), often snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

 Red Sox rout Yankees, complete historic rally - Baseball - MSNBC.com
New York overcame the Red Sox by winning the final two games of the 1949 season at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees won a one-game playoff for the AL East in 1978 behind Bucky Dent’s three-run homer at Fenway Park, and Aaron Boone hit the 11th-inning homer that won Game 7 last year.
From Fenway Park to Faneuil Hall, from Boston Common to Beacon Hill, the 11th pennant for the Red Sox, the first since 1986, will be remembered as the best for one reason: Beating New York in Yankee Stadium, site of last year’s Game 7 meltdown.
This was for Williams, Doerr and Pesky, for Yastrzemski and Yawkey, for Fisk and Rice and even Buckner and Nomar, just a few of the hundreds who suffered the pain inflicted by their New York neighbors in a rivalry that has become baseball’s best.
