Every now and then we get lucky! Of course the Sox have not got lucky all year, however that aside, I get lucky today because I get to spend the afternoon here.
Kerry and I (David is in North Carolina) get to share the day with Luis Tiant, El Tiante, truly one of the Red Sox all time greats, and in my view the best pitcher not in the National Baseball Hall of Fame! And I still can’t figure out why, can you say future blog?
Curtis Liquors is owned and operated by Rick Curtis whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for 40 years! Yikes, has it been that long? I have worked with him, worked for him and am fortunate to call him my friend!
There are two Curtis Liquor Stores (Weymouth and Cohasset) and I will tell you that you cannot and will not find a finer wine selection anywhere! So when you are out and about today, take a ride over to the Curtis Liquors on Columbian Street in South Weymouth Mass between 1-4 PM. Register for your chance to win an Ipad.
Pick up a great bottle of wine…..
A great cigar….
A great book…..
Listen and watch a live radio broadcast….
Meet a Red Sox legend….
And say hello to Kerry and I,
And you can be home in time to watch the Sox and Yankees….It’s got to be better than last night! Doesn’t it?
And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, July 28, 2012.
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.
