The 1999 Boston Red Sox season was the 99th season in the franchise's Major League Baseball history. The Red Sox finished second in the American League East with a record of 94 wins and 68 losses, four games behind the New York Yankees, who went on to win the World Series. The Red Sox qualified for the postseason as the AL wild card, and defeated the American League Central champion Cleveland Indians in the ALDS. The Red Sox then lost to the Yankees in the ALCS.

Pedro Martínez won the American League Cy Young Award, becoming the second pitcher to win the award in both leagues.[1] Additionally, Jimy Williams was named the American League Manager of the Year.
