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.
