In Memorium ~

We lost our friend and the Chair of The Great Fenway Writers Series, George Mitrovich after a cancer batter.

At 83, George Mitrovich kept up a nearly daily patter of baseball musings, shared with his more than 1,000 friends and family members on Facebook.  But his last posting was July 8 – noting two home runs by "20-year-old wiz kid" Ferdnando Tatis, Jr.  His silence was soon explained.  The San Diego native was being treated for metastatic cancer, melanoma having spread to his brain.  George died at Sharp Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, July 24.

George chaired The Great Fenway Park Writers Series, as well as chairing the team's annual birthday tribute to Jackie Robinson.

A friend of The BoSox Club, he will be sorely missed.
