Knuckled Under

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 43
Orioles 12, Red Sox 5
You could say the first week of the season “flu” by, with many key players on the team hit by either influenza, a stomach bug, or a respiratory bug, all of which were circulating through the clubhouse.  Add to that two players on [...]

Game 1 A.D.

Monday, April 3, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 32
Red Sox 5, Pirates 3
Every year, I make the same tweet on the morning of the home opener:

#OpeningDay is my favorite holiday. Sorry, Christmas!

Though this marked my 17th Fenway Park Opening Day, there were a couple of things different this year: [...]

Road Trip to Port Charlotte

Sunday, February 26, 2017 – Charlotte Sports Park, Port Charlotte
Rays 7, Red Sox 3
Today was the first road game for the Red Sox, a short drive north to Port Charlotte to take on the Rays.  It was also my last game before heading much further back north.  We know going in that for road games [...]

Home Whites

Saturday, February 25, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Red Sox 8, Twins 7
Saturday brought the third game of the spring calendar, and the first where the team was wearing their home white uniforms.  Again we arrived in the morning before the gates opened and went around back to see what was going on.  It was [...]

Grapefruit League Opener

Friday, February 24, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Mets 3, Red Sox 2
On Friday the Grapefruit League games got underway with a contest against the Mets.  We again arrived well before the gates opened, and walked around to the practice fields in the back of the complex.  On one field, most of the major league [...]

Welcome Back, Baseball

Thursday, February 23, 2017 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers
Red Sox 9, Huskies 6
Today it was finally time to watch some baseball!  The Red Sox kicked off the 2017 season with a 1:00 game against Northeastern University.  We arrived early, well before the gates opened, and walked around to the back fields of the complex to [...]

Sending Out An S.O.S.

Sunday, July 3, 2016 – Fenway Park, Section 42
Red Sox 10, Angels 5
After a personal 5-0 record in May games, I went a dismal 0-5 in June, so I was happy to turn the figurative page to July.  But mostly I was happy that I didn’t have a ticket to Saturday night’s game, a brutal [...]

Seeing the Sea Dogs

Saturday, June 25, 2016 – Hadlock Field, Portland
Fightin’ Phils 8, Sea Dogs 3
While the Red Sox were on the road in Texas, I made my annual trip to Portland to see the Double A Sea Dogs.  Late June seemed to be the perfect time – top prospects Andrew Benintendi and Yoan Moncada had both been [...]

Keep It Rolling

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 – Fenway Park, Section 40
Red Sox 8, Rockies 3
The Colorado Rockies were the next victims for the Red Sox, who have their offense working at Fenway as if they were in the thin air of mile-high Coors Field.  They jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first, then added two [...]

Triple Threat

Sunday, May 22, 2016 – Fenway Park, Section 42
Red Sox 5, Indians 2
When weather people on TV give the temperature and then say what it “feels like” to account for the heat index or wind chill, there really should be a third category – Fenway bleachers.  As in, “The game time temperature is 59, with [...]
