Forty years since the 1967 Impossible Dream season elevated baseball to sacred cow status in Boston, the 67-year-old Yaz is asked about superstitions. The greatest living Red Sox reveals that for seven years he never changed his red socks. I think I wore them from the start of 67 to 73, says Yaz, breaking out that infectious grin. The red socks. They had a big hole in em and everything else, but I wouldnt change em. I kept wearing them and wearing them and wearing them.
