And I believe Carlton Fisk played golf!
Red Sox Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk.
Since 2008 Carlton Fisk has hosted a tournament at The Founders Club in Sarasota Florida for charity. The beneficiaries have been charities benefiting children of Florida’s Suncoast.
This year the event will take place in November with all proceeds going to Suncoast Charities for Children.
Another one of the good guys working toward “improving the lot of others”.
Yesterday the Red Sox thundering bats of the past week fell silent as they could muster but one run. However the pitching put forth its best effort of the year as Jon Lester, Franklin Morales, Vincent Padilla, and Alfredo Aceves combined to shut out the White Sox as Fenway’s inhabitants won their sixth straight and are now, finally at .500 (10-10). Even though they remain in last place in the AL East, they gained a game and are only 2 1/2 games behind the first place Rays.
Jon Lester got his first win of 2012 yesterday going seven innings allowing no runs on five hits. He walked a batter and fanned seven.
One hundred years ago today, the Red Sox played the American League defending champion Philadelphia A’s and took it on the chin 7-1. It ran their record to 8-4 and they fell a game and a half behind the Chicago White Sox. In seven of their wins, they had come from behind.
And so it is and so it was on this date in Fenway Park history, April 29, 2012 and April 29, 1912.
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.
