Too many players from the 1967 Impossible Dream Red Sox have died at too young of an age.  The recent passing of catcher Mike Ryan on July 7, 2020, brought the number of players we have lost to seventeen.  Since there were 39 players who are included on the 1967 Roster for the season, 22 members of the Impossible Dream team survive.

In addition, we have lost the following non-player personnel:

General Manager: Dick O’Connell
Assistant GM: Haywood Sullivan
Manager: Dick Williams
Bench coach: Eddie “Pop” Popowski

First Base Coach: Bobby Doerr
Pitching coach: Sal Maglie
Bullpen coach: Al Lakeman
Trainer: Buddy LeRoux

Catcher Jerry Moses, who died on March 26, 2018, was not on the official 1967 roster but spent September with the team, and the 1967 Red Sox players of record considered him to be a 1967 teammate.

The following is a complete listing including date of death and age at death.
