It’s a Story of Hank and Frank and Dave and Ray and Josh…..

A top of the morning to you one and all. I will be traveling for the next couple of days as I make my way north to be at Fenway Park for THE GAME on Friday!

Excited does not even begin to describe my thoughts. I will be spending the entire day at Fenway and of course you’ll hear all about it! What follows are seven posts which tell the story of the making of the Ted Williams Jimmy Fund Statue, which were written in December. They are in order. It’s the story about Hank, Franc, Dave, Ray, Josh and Ted.

Hank and Franc.

And Ted and the Kid.

For all you folks in the Boston area, David, Kerry and I will be buzzing all around Beantown this weekend. Friday night at midnight we will be on The Jordan Rich Show on WBZ radio.

In studio with us will be Dick Flavin. He is the gentleman who accompanied Johnny Pesky and Dom DiMaggio to Inverness Florida to see Ted Williams. The trip that led to the book The Teammates.

Dick Flavin, humorist extrodanaire and long, long time Red Sox fan.

 

On Saturday April 21st, from 11 AM to 1 PM, we will be signing books at the Stop and Shop in Hyde Park. And on Sunday April 22nd we will be at the BU Barnes and Noble Bookstore right in the heart of Kenmore Square.

PLEASE STOP BY AND SAY HELLO!

And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, April 19, 2012, the eve of her 100th bitrthday. Happy Birthday Mook.

About fenwaypark100

Hello and welcome, my name is Raymond Sinibaldi. An educator for more than two decades, a baseball fan for nearly 60 years, I have authored four books about baseball and her glorious history; with a fifth on the way in late spring of 2015; the first, The Babe in Red Stockings which was co-authored with Kerry Keene and David Hickey. It is a chronicle of Babe's days with the Red Sox. We also penned a screenplay about Babe's Red Sox days so if any of you are Hollywood inclined or would like to represent us in forwarding that effort feel free to contact me through my email. In 2012 we three amigos published Images of Fenway Park in honor of the 100th birthday of Fenway Park. That led to the creation of this blog. The following year, 2013 came my first solo venture, Spring Training in Bradenton and Sarasota. This is a pictorial history of spring training in those two Florida cities. The spring of 2014 brought forth the 1967 Red Sox, The Impossible Dream Season. The title speaks for itself and it also is a pictorial history. Many of the photos in this book were never published before. The spring of 2015 will bring 1975 Red Sox, American League Champions. Another pictorial effort, this will be about the Red Sox championship season of 1975 and the World Series that restored baseball in America. I was fortunate enough to consult with sculptor Franc Talarico on the “Jimmy Fund” statue of Ted Williams which stands outside both Fenway Park and Jet Blue Park Fenway South, in Fort Myers Florida. That story is contained in the near 300 posts which are contained herein. This blog has been dormant for awhile but 2015 will bring it back to life so jump on board, pass the word and feel free to contact me about anything you read or ideas you may have for a topic. Thanks for stopping by, poke around and enjoy. Autographed copies of all my books are available here, simply click on Raymond Sinibaldi and email me.
