The 1969 Boston Red Sox season was the 69th season in the franchise's Major League Baseball history. With the American League (AL) now split into two divisions, the Red Sox finished third in the newly established American League East with a record of 87 wins and 75 losses, 22 games behind the Baltimore Orioles, who went on to win the AL championship.

Dick Williams, who had managed the team to the 1967 AL pennant, was fired on September 23;[1] coach Eddie Popowski led the team for the final nine games of the season.
