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.
