Despite following the Sox closely then, I always forget that they didn't clinch in 1990 until game 162.

I'm partial to this Game 162:

I was at that one with my brother. We left after the second rain delay. It was a miserable day at the park. I've still never seen a no hitter in person.

Excellently composed edition of this series. Thank you, Jose!

Glad you enjoyed it. Obviously a lot of personal memories on this one.

Most enjoyable series, I agree. I have to say that it makes me feel old that Game 162 of 1967, another where the Sox clinched on the last day, is now relegated to the sepia-tinged past as if Tris Speaker had played it.

(I wasn't aware of it at the time, either, being in England, although I was the right age at 17, but the aftershocks of it were still all over Boston when I became a fan in 1971-2. I must have at least 10-12 books about that season.) The 1990 one, on the other hand, I missed altogether -- third pennant in 5 seasons, didn't lead to anything further, and I was back in England again trying unsuccessfully to make my business work. I saw a spring training game that year, though -- very impressed with Carlos Quintana.

Indeed -- thanks for putting this together, Jose!

That was the first time I ever went to Spring Training. My father and I came away convinced that Quintana was going to be terrible but he wound up being really good over there.
