Notes from the BoSox Club Luncheon - July 19, 2017

The annual BoSox Club luncheon at Fenway Park continues the tradition of being awesome!

About 10 hours after the Red Sox won a 15-inning game against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays, BoSox Club members gathered for their annual luncheon at Fenway Park. Dave O'Brien was the MC, and the two guests of honor were Chris Sale and Jonny Gomes.

After Chris Sale graciously signed autographs for everyone who wanted one, he fielded questions from Dave O'Brien, who kicked off the conversation by saying how much fun it is to watch Sale pitch. Chris said that pitching for Red Sox fans makes a lot of different – that he feeds off the intensity that Boston fans bring to the games. He recalled the game in Baltimore a couple of years ago when the game was played in front of an empty stadium (due to civil unrest in the city). "That was miserable," he said. So, pitching at Fenway is really a good experience. He said, "Thank you, guys."

Red Sox Legend Tony Conigliaro Would Have Been 72

Had he lived, Red Sox great Tony Conigliaro would have turned seventy-two years old today. The kid from Boston's North Shore was the quickest to 100 home runs in MLB history—then, he was struck down in his prime by a bean-ball. Just a year and a half after the horrible events of August 18, 1967, he came back to hit 20 HRs with 82 RBI in 141 games. He was truly one of us—he will always be one of us. We can only imagine what could have been. Rest in peace, Tony. (www.fenwaynation.com)

Notes from the BoSox Club luncheon on July 20th at Fenway Park!

David Price and Jim Rice. Together at the BoSox Club July 20 luncheon at Fenway! What a day. Red Sox poet laureate and BoSox Club friend Dick Flavin kicked it off with a great ode to the ace Price and added a historical tome on a hitting exhibition involving Ted Williams and the Babe. Then it was NESN guy, Dave O'Brien's turn to question the two guests. Price gave all confidence that he will find his ace self with the Sox. He concluded with a cute story about his canine companion, Astro. Hall of Famer Rice touched on the greatness of the '75 Sox and added some great hitting stories based on his contacts with Ted, Yaz and his own hitting coach Johnny Pesky. Both signed for all!
