Happy Saturday! Just a reminder that Images of Fenway Park is available for those who are looking for a last-minute Mothers Day gift. Head out to your local Barnes and Noble, or for you in New England, the Paper Store and pick up this pictorial history of Fenway Park.
There are over 200 photos covering 100 years of Fenway activity. Over 40 photos have never been published before, many from fans who love Fenway Park!
The foreword was written by Red Sox legend and 1967 Cy Young Award winner Jim Lonborg and his very personal story about Fenway Park will delight you! He was kind enough to contribute a great photo as well.
This never before published photo appears in the book with the following caption:
“In 1967 Jim Lonborg emerged as one of the premier pitchers in the league going 22-9 and winning the Cy Young Award. A skiing injury sidetracked his career and he was traded in 1972, but he never left Boston. Establishing a dental practice on Boston’s south shore upon retirement, Dr. Lonborg still calls Fenway home. Here he enjoys the game with wife Rosemary, son Jordan and Jordan’s girlfriend Molly.”
Now for those of you who need to order the book on-line here’s an idea, download the photo of the cover photo, make Mom a nice home made card, put the photo in it and tell her it’s on the way!
And the Sox won yesterday, are they on the way too? yes they are, we’re just not quite sure yet where they are heading!
And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, May 12, 2012.
