Boston Red Sox major league players, team & Fenway Park statistics and history are my strengths.

Experience in the area

I've been attending Red Sox games yearly at Fenway Park since 1969. I thrive on Bosox trivia. I have been a huge Red Sox fan since I was 12 years old. My knowledge of Carl Yastrzemski is exceptional. He was my boyhood hero and I still miss his (hard-nose, give 100% every game) playing style to this day. I 'live & die' with the Red Sox every season, game and even every inning. As much as I love the Red Sox, I despise the Yankees!

2017-04-14 Foul pole distances:

In 1976, metric distances were added to the conventionally stated distances because it was thought that the United States would adopt the metric system. Today, few American ballparks have metric distances

2011-04-16 2004 Red Sox world series ring:

I would guess that Bill Dillon was a Red Sox fan who had it made for himself because Intergold makes replicas of all the major sports championship rings. Jostens Jewelers of Boston made the original rings

2011-02-11 2004 World Series:

Hi,    No one on the Red Sox has a name even close, but on the St. Louis Cardinals roster there was a player by the name of Róger Cedeño.    Here's a 2004 World Series link with all information you could

2010-12-23 Babe Ruth (no retired Red Sox number):

I researched Walt Dropo's injured wrist in all the baseball almanacs and I'm sorry but the source of his injury was never mentioned. There's way too many Red Sox players that wore #3 to name. Sorry.  

2010-12-22 Babe Ruth (no retired Red Sox number):

The reason is that numbers weren't used on uniforms until the 1920's, well after he was sold to the Yankees. That's also why Cy Young has not been so honored.
