On Saturday David, Kerry and I hit the road again with a two stop day. We will begin the day with a morning visit with the good folks of Westborough Mass whom we will meet at Tatnuck’s Booksellers, Gift Gallery and Cafe on Route 9 and Lyman Street. We will be there from 10 AM until noon.
We will then travel back to the south shore for a late afternoon visit (4-6 PM) with the folks in Hingham Mass at the Barnes and Noble Book Store in the world-famous Derby Street Shoppes on Derby Street.
So if you are out in the Westborough way on Saturday morning, or if you know folks who are out that way, stop by or send them a heads up to come out and enjoy morning coffee with us and talk about a couple of New England’s favorite topics, Fenway Park and the Red Sox.
And for those of you on the south shore who may have missed us last Saturday at Curtis Liquors in Weymouth, make sure you catch up with us in Hingham on Saturday afternoon.
PS. The internet bidding on the trophy closed at $150,000. Now it’s time for the live floor auction. That should get very interesting!
And so it is on this day in Fenway Park history, August 2, 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.
