Fenway Park’s 100th birthday weekend came to an end yesterday in a rain drenched Sunday which mercifully postponed last nights game with the Yankees at Fenway Park. As the Red Sox teeter on the brink of what could become a disastrous season, the painful reality that the they might just be that bad looms and with that the thought that Fenway might just be the only thing to celebrate this historic summer.
And yesterday at the BU Barnes and Noble bookstore, David, Kerry and I gathered to do just that, celebrate Fenway Park.
Dave Hickey and Kerry Keene.
TD stopped by to regale the gathering with a story of Ted Williams.
TD and Yours Truly.
With a passion that is only his, Kerry delighted the folks with his story of being a 50 year old ball boy at Fenway Park.
Kerry Keene in his element.
We told Fenway tales and signed some books and the dreariness of the weather and the Red Sox start was, for a while, forgotten. The magic of Fenway carried the day.
Kerry introduced Addy to the folks.
And with the help of her mom and her baby sister, she, a bit reluctantly, said hello to all.
And then she signed her first book!
Making her the star of the day!
A heartwarming day shared with Fenway, family and friends and I am once again reminded of how blessed I am. And these two knuckleheads certainly add to those blessings!
And so it was on this day in Fenway Park history, a rainout Sunday on April 22, 2012. Happy Birthday Lyn, Happy Birthday Meg!
