Fenway home opener

Today the Boston Red Sox return to Fenway Park for their 2021 home opener. After a disappointing 2020 (in so many ways), I’m excited to have Alex Cora return as the team’s manager, although I’m sad that many of the players he coached from the 2018 World Series are no longer part of the team. I have no idea what to expect from this year’s Boston Red Sox, but I’m excited and hope I get a chance to go to a game this year.

The game starts at 2:10 PM ET today and will be broadcast (locally) on NESN.

Boston Red Sox: LGBTQ ally

Today is the last day of Boston Pride Week 2020 so I wanted to share an excellent article from Out Sports blog that details how the Boston Red Sox went from the last team in MLB to integrate to being one of the biggest champions of LGBTQ Pride.

This year the Boston Red Sox were planning their Pride Night this season to coincide with Boston Pride’s 50-year anniversary and how amazing would that have been? I’ve really enjoyed the annual Pride celebration at Fenway and each year it gets better so I can only imagine what might have been this year.

As of last season, all but two MLB teams hosted a Pride event. MLB’s decision to name Billy Bean as its Ambassador for Inclusion has helped change the culture around the league, but the Red Sox have done more than just host a Pride Night. The Fenway Sports Group has donated to LGBT causes around the city, including a $200,000 pledge to Fenway Health, the region’s largest LGBTQ clinic and resource center. But there is so much more to this story so read the full article on Out Sports, How the Red Sox, who were the last team to integrate, became champions of LGBTQ Pride.

The World Champion Boston Red Sox host the Toronto Blue Jays for their 2019 home opener at Fenway Park; game time is 2:05PM.

It is hard to imagine the Red Sox having a season like they did in 2018 but hopes remain high as Boston looks to retain their nickname, Titletown. Since 2001 Boston’s professional teams have net an astounding 12 championships. It is truly the Golden Age for Boston sports enthusiasts.

It may be a bit chilly for baseball but New Englanders have a perverse notion of what is spring. Later today the Boston Red Sox will take to the field for the team’s 106th season at Fenway Park in Boston – arguably the most beautiful major league baseball park and certainly my favorite.

For those of you who are excited about the 2018 MLB Season, The Welcoming Committee in Boston is hosting a “Take Over” of Fenway Park and have purchased a block of tickets for Monday, April 30th when the Red Sox host the Kansas City Royals.  This will sell out so if you’re interested get your tickets now.

Fenway Park home opener today at 3:05pm

Flashback Friday, Boston Red SoxThe Red Sox are off to a strong start in the first week of the 2015 MLB season. This past weekend they wrapped up their first series against the Jeter-less New York Yankees, where they beat them in dramatic fashion on Friday night, playing 19 innings in a game that lasted seven hours.

Today Fenway Park’s home opener for the 2015 Baseball season is today.  The Boston Red Sox will play host to the Washington Nationals who have struggled in their first week of play.  After this three game series, the Red Sox will play 22 consecutive games against American League East teams so I hope the team can maintain their intensity.

Red Sox season starts today

baseball, jock, hunkThe Boston Red Sox play their first game of the 2015 MLB season later today at 3:05 pm  in Philadelphia. Fenway Park’s home opener won’t be until the following Monday when they host Washington, D.C.’s Nationals.

Hopefully the weather will warm up in a hurry so it will be more enjoyable to visit Fenway Park, and here is to hoping that this season proves to be less frustrating than 2014 for Red Sox Nation.

Red Sox spring training

sportsTomorrow Red Sox position players report for spring training with the first full-squad workout scheduled for this Thursday. It may not seem like spring (at least not here in Boston) but I love when spring training starts because I know spring is not far away. This year Red Sox Nation will also have the added benefit of the handsome (selfie loving) Grady Sizemore.  Will he be able to bring the goods or just be easy on the eyes?

Red Sox championship parade

Boston Red SoxCalled a “Rolling Rally” by The Boston Globe, today’s Red Sox World Series Championship parade was incredibly pleasant,thanks to unseasonably warm and sunny weather.

There was a relaxed atmosphere in the crowd that poured in from all over New England and beyond to see the parade.  This kid’s sign pretty much sums up Boston’s good fortune in recent years.

I can’t think of any other city in recent years that has dominated in all the major sports leagues, making it truly one of the best places to live if you love sports.

Below are a handful of photos from today’s parade. Boston Red Sox Championship ParadeBoston Red Sox Championship ParadeBoston Red Sox Championship ParadeBoston Red Sox Championship Parade

The city’s celebratory parade on the Duck Boats will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. I’ve taken a screen capture of the parade route, but for more information link hereRed Sox duck boat parade
