BoSox Club Highlights

In Memorium ~

RIP to Carroll Hardy, an American professional athlete in who played in the National Football League for the San Francisco 49ers and in Major League Baseball for the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Houston Colt .45s and Minnesota Twins. He died on August 9 in Highlands Ranch, Colo., from complications of dementia. He was 87 years old. Most diehard baseball fans know that Hardy had the honor of being the only player ever to have pinch-hit for Ted Williams, but few know that his pinch-hit résumé goes well beyond this claim to immortality: he was the only player to pinch-hit for Carl Yastrzemski, Williams's replacement in left field, and also pinch-hit for Roger Maris.

BoSox Club Partners with the Great Fenway Park Writers Series for an online event on August 6!

On Aug. 6 at 7 p.m., we will be featuring "The Last Pass: Cousy, Russell, the Celtics and What Matters in the End," by best-selling author Gary Pomerantz. Over the course of 2 ½ years, Pomerantz conducted 53 interviews with basketball Hall of Famer Bob Cousy, who offered fresh insights into sports' greatest dynasty, speaking with soul-searching candor and clarity about race, family and his regrets, in addition to the hardwood exploits of those unforgettable Celtics teams. A central theme is Cousy's relationship with teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Bill Russell, and his reflections on why there was such distance between the two and whether he could have been more supportive during Russell's encounters with racism.  REGISTER at http://www.fenwayparkwriters.org.

On June 25th, the Great Fenway Park Writers Series held a relaunch of their literary forums with a zoom discussion with Award-winning journalist John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle and co-author of 24: Life Stories and Lessons From the Say Hey Kid.  The New York Times best-selling book is co-authored by a man widely regarded as the greatest player in baseball history, Willie Mays.  It was the first event of the forum since the death of its founder, George Mitrovich.

Joining Shea were: Larry Lucchino, former President and CEO of the Boston Red Sox; Rachel Mitrovich, George's niece; Dick Flavin, Honorary Poet Laureate of the BoSox Club, Boston Red Sox Poet Laureate, and New York Times Best Selling author; and Julian McWilliams, who covers the Red Sox for the Boston Globe, grew up in Harlem playing Little League across the street from the Polo Grounds, and developed a lifelong passion for Mays after listening to his grandfather's many stories about the Hall of Famer.
