Boston Red Sox Tickets
Boston Red Sox swept the AL West champion Angels in the Division Series, winning Game 3 by a score of 8-6. Then advanced to a rematch in the 2004 American League Championship Series against their bitter rivals: the New York Yankees. Boston Red Sox became history makers, becoming the first team in Major League Baseball history to recover from a 3-0 deficit. Boston Red Sox won the 2004 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, a team that had posted the best record in the major leagues and that had defeated them in the past. The final out of the game was made on Cardinals shortstop Edgar Rentería at 11:40 pm, in the midst of a lunar eclipse. Boston Red Sox won baseball’s World Championship for the first time in 86 years. Ramirez was named MVP of the Series.
Boston Red Sox held a parade or in Boston mayor Thomas Menino words, they put up a “rolling rally” on Saturday, October 30, 2004. More than 3 million members of “Red Sox Nation” filled the streets of Boston to cheer as the team rode Duck Tours. Boston Red Sox became the Sports Illustrated’s Sportsmen of the Year.
Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox resounds with the echoes of great baseball players: Cy Young, Babe Ruth, Jimmy Collins, Duffy Lewis, Tris Speaker, Harry Hooper, Joe Cronin, Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky, Ted Williams, Jimmie Foxx, Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice and Carl Yastrzemski, to name just a few. It remains the same, much like it did the day it opened on April 20, 1912. The park is actually their second home. The Boston Americans became one of the charter members of the fledgling American League in 1901 and played ball at the Huntington Avenue Grounds, now a part of Northeastern University’s campus. In 1904, Boston Globe owner General Charles Henry Taylor bought the team for his son John I. Taylor who changed the club’s name to Red Sox in 1907. Tired of the leasing arrangement for the Avenue Grounds, Taylor decided to build a park for the team naming it Fenway Park because of its location in the Fenway section of Boston.
Edgar Renteria upgrades the champs and they’ve replaced two starting pitchers with three: Matt Clement, Wade Miller and one-time Fenway villain David Wells. Jason Varitek is back and it is highly likely that this team is better than its predecessors. GM Theo Epstein took a major step towards forming the team for 2007 season and has managed to rope in Japanese superstar pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka. Jonathan Papelbon will be the starter for this season. Other additions are Keith Foulke, the star of World Series 2004, Hideki Okajima, the Japanese lefty reliever formerly of the Yomiuri Giants and lefty J.C. Romero from Puerto Rica. Reliever Joel Pineiro has signed a 1 year contract with them. Runelvys Hernandez relief pitcher, Joe McEwing infielder and Kerry Robinson outfielder has also signed minor league contract with the team. Mark Loretta was replaced by Houston and Alex Gonzalez has been replaced by Julio Lugo.
The hot favorites are Joel PiÃ±eiro, Brendan Donnelly, Devern Hansack, J.C. Romero, Craig Hansen, Manny Delcarmen, Mike Timlin and Julian Tavarez, while on the other hand Jonathon Papelbon, the starter of the team will be resuming his role as closer. Boston Red Sox defeated MET in a recent match held on March, 7 scoring 9 on a grand slam as against 5 of MET.
