Give Mom Fenway Park for Mother’s Day. What could be better than that?
There are over 200 photos in this book. Here is one of them with the caption which accompanies it.
“Smokey” Joe Wood (right) is seen glancing toward the Fenway Park outfield before Game Four of the 1912 World Series. Wood was the ace of the Boston staff in 1912 with an astounding 34-5 record. His 34 wins, and .872 winning percentage remain records for a Red Sox starting pitcher in a season. He was 3-1 in the 1912 World Series. The Red Sox catcher to the far left is Hick Cady.”

Last night the Red Sox bats kept pounding as they trounced the White Sox 10-3 for their fifth straight win. They are now 9-10, still in last place in the AL East 3 1/2 games behind the leading Tampa Bay Rays who have won six straight.
One hundred years ago today was a Sunday and baseball was not played on Sundays. The Red Sox were 8-3 and had won three straight. They were in second place, 1/2 game out!
And so it is and so it was on this date in Fenway Park history, April 28, 2012, April 28, 1912.
