And Kerry, David and I went to the Boston University Barnes and Noble bookstore to talk about Fenway Park!
We will be there from 1-3 PM to chat a bit and sign Images of Fenway Park! So come on by!
Yesterday we spent some time at the brand new Stop and Shop on Truman Parkway in Hyde Park Massachusetts! Thanks to all you nice folks who stopped by and said hello.
And thanks to Matt for standing by us for the day!
Today the Fenway Faithful are reeling from yesterdays debacle! Really, dumping a 9-1 lead and against the Yankees no less UGH! Shouts of “off with their heads”are sure to be heard but not me. For the next several days I will be pouring over the 500 or more photos of Friday April 20th and revel in the wonder that is, was and forever will be Fenway! There is a fear that perhaps that is all there will be to cheer about this anniversary year! I’m not sure quite yet but the thought has crossed my mind. What was it Scarlett said, “I’ll think about it tomorrow”.
And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, April 22, 2012.
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.
