With the 2010 Midsummer Classic in the books, after Joe Girardi screwed the American League out of homefield advantage in the World Series, it’s time to look ahead. The unofficial second half of the season will get underway for your Boston Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park, with the opener of a four-game series […]
Fans of fireworks on the Fourth of July were dissapointed this holiday. At Fenway Park at least. The Boston Red Sox managed only three hits on Independence Day this year, as they were shut down by Brian Matusz and the most-awful Baltimore Orioles 6-1 in Boston on Sunday in the oppressive afternoon heat. The Red Sox […]
The Boston Red Sox finished off their month of May in suitable fashion. On New Hampshire Day at Fenway Park, the Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-1 to salvage a split of the series heading into tomorrow’s day off. After a much-needed sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Sox came into this […]
Pink hats are the illegal immigrants of Fenway Park, and some Sox fans are starting to act like Arizona law enforcement officers. It’s easy to see why longtime fans resent the newcomers to Kenmore Square. Bleacher seats are hard to come by these days, and if anyone deserves them it’s the tried-and-true fan, whose blue […]
It takes a lot to impress me. Very rarely do I walk out of a movie, a concert, a social gathering or sporting event shaking my head in pleasurable disbelief. Not to say I don’t enjoy any of these things, because I often do. It’s just I don’t get blown away very often. I’m much […]
There is never anything wrong with looking back. But after a while, you just get tired of it. Over the last few weeks, we have all been inundated with year-end and decade-end reviews, “Best of” lists, and whatever else writers and newscasters like to throw at you to fill time in December. It’s all well […]
Fenway Park was on the edge of its collective seat for the third annual Winter Classic. It was a close, tough match, but the Boston Bruins somehow clawed out a 2-1 victory at the end. The 1st period was nothing special, really. Some back and forth action, with a nice looking save or two on each […]
Looking to fill that holiday stocking? How about some Red Sox tickets for the 2010 Red Sox season? Sounds good to me, too. Yes, baseball’s regular season is more than four months away, but single-game tickets for select home games are available now. See the Boston Red Sox Web site for details. Good luck!
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is blaming the Sox being on the wrong end of an ALDS sweep on the Fenway Park infield, calling it the worst in the game. Stop it. You might as well say the umpires were on the Angels’ payroll. Not a bad idea, actually. The fact of the matter […]
Commonwealth Avenue rivals Boston College and Boston University will play a game at Fenway Park on January 8 this coming season. The Eagles and Terriers get the back end of the doubleheader, with their game starting at 7:30 PM. They will follow the 4 PM game between Northeastern and New Hampshire’s women’s teams, annually two of […]
Fenway Park is set to have a very busy and very chilly off-season. The MLB’s oldest active stadium will play host not only to the NHL’s Winter Classic between the Boston Bruins and Philladelphia Flyers on New Year’s Day, but also to a college hockey double-header one week later, on January 8. Hockey East officials […]
Fenway Park has hosted some amazing events and now it appears that it has gotten even cooler. Fenway has been chosen to be the host of next season‘s NHL Winter Classic, an outdoor hockey game which has become an annual tradition. Following Ralph Wilson Stadium, in Buffalo, and Wrigley Field, in Chicago, Boston is the next stop […]
Brad Penny won his 100th game as a major leaguer, tossing five innings and allowing just one unearned run in Boston’s 6-1 victory over the Marlins. He gave up three hits and four walks, and lowered his ERA to under 5.00 (now 4.94) for the first time since his first Red Sox start (when he had a 4.50 ERA). Penny’s milestone came […]
A Yankees fan seeking revenge for the burial of David Ortiz’s jersey under the new Yankee Stadium may have planted his own “curse.” Ian Ferris, 30, brought a commemorative sack of grass seed from Yankee Stadium to the Phish concert last week at Fenway Park. “I’m a lifelong Yankee fan and someone buried an Ortiz jersey […]
Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs expects the NHL’s third annual Winter Classic, played outdoors on Jan. 1, to be held at Fenway Park. Jacobs believes an official announcement from the league could come in July. Sports of Boston reported back in April that the Bruins’ likely opponent would be the arch-rival Montreal Canadiens.
