Red Sox Owner Tom Werner promised us that we would get chills when we see who is throwing out the 1st pitch and I think he’s going to be correct as Bill Buckner will handle the honors.
Let’s hope that this will once and for all put away any and all ill will for 1986-that experience just made us all tougher(and more cynical). I thought when he returned to the Red Sox a few years after ’86 to actually start opening day and was introduced to the crowd and a rousing ovation that it was over(it should have been).
It is a great day here at Fenway at least as far as the weather goes. A little chilly but sunny and after this extra long spring- any sun is very welcome- I’ll try to keep you updated as the Championship rings are about to be handed out .
