Give Mom Fenway Park for Mothers Day…..

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.

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.
