Time for Change?

March 2023 There are a host of rule changes coming to MLB in 2023: a pitcher/batter clock, defensive positioning restrictions, disengagement limits, and larger bases. I’m not generally in favor of dramatic changes to the way the game is played (I still hate the Manfred Man/zombie runner in extra innings, the 7-inning doubleheaders that were […]

October 23, 2021 It’s always sad when baseball season ends, but overall this season well exceeded my expectations. When the season started, and ballparks were at limited capacity, I wondered if they’d even be able to play a full season before having to shut down again. It was so exciting to be able to get […]

My Favorite Game

October 10, 1999 – Fenway Park, Section 1 October 10 is the anniversary of my favorite game of the 500+ I’ve been to at Fenway Park – Game 4 of the 1999 Division Series against the Indians.  It’s my favorite not only because it was the first time I experienced the intensity of a playoff […]

The Fenway 500

This week I reached a personal milestone – my 500th game at Fenway Park.  When I realized a year ago that my current pace was getting me close, I pulled out all my old scorecard books and ticket stubs and totaled them all up in a spreadsheet.  The big day came Monday, August 20, a […]

Saturday, October 1, 2016 I’ve been so caught up in magic numbers and scoreboard watching, all to make sure the Red Sox get a chance to win one more Championship for Big Papi before he retires, that it hasn’t hit me until just now that we only have a few more chances to see him […]

Best. Day. Ever.

September 19, 2015 My Day with the World Series Trophy Today was the Best. Day. Ever. All summer long I’ve been scanning my season ticket holder card at games and watching for code words on TV to earn rewards points.  I used the points to enter a raffle… and won!  And it was the best […]

The End of an Era

Wherein I Wax Nostalgic over the Fenway Park Sellout Streak It’s April 10, 2013, and the Red Sox are not playing in front of a full house for the first time in nearly a decade.  I’m not at the game tonight, but I will admit I seriously considered it when I saw a tweet at […]

Cat Vs. Tree

Wherein I document the ongoing saga of Tessie’s yearly Christmas re-decorating. Year 1 November 26, 2011 Day One: Hiding amongst the foliage. Cat’s note: I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK! Human’s note: OK so far. November 27, 2011 Day Two: Redecorating. Human’s note: I woke up to see this right outside my bedroom door this […]

My Trek to Tek

Saturday, November 20, 2010 Earlier this week I heard about an event at Makeovers Salon and Spa in Easton, Mass.  People who purchased gift certificates on Saturday evening would have the chance to meet and get an autograph from Jason Varitek, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Jimmy Fund.  Easton’s a bit […]

All Systems Go

Friday, February 26, 2010 Finally! After losing a day of my vacation thanks to a nasty storm, I was able to fly down to southwest Florida this morning.  It was snowing when we took off, but it was nothing compared to the monsoon of the previous day.  By the time I arrived, it was too […]
