A Papi-licious Night!
From the Herald, today....
"The Sox will honor David Ortiz’ record-breaking home run accomplishments in a pre-game ceremony at Fenway Park tonight. The festivities will include Nanci Foxx Canaday and Linda Ruth Tosetti. Ortiz broke the club record for homers established by Foxx Canaday’s father, Jimmie Foxx, 68 years ago, while equaling the AL record for road homers set by Tosetti’s grandfather, Babe Ruth, in 1927."
Peter here, and the ceremony, more than the game itself, will be something to see in these last moments of baseball '06. And Manny might be in the lineup. I hope the rest helped his knee...he WAS in pain. We know that. Oh, and Schill will be on the hill, in what will probably be his last start of the season. And we want second place back. For good. So tonight, Papi, it is YOUR night. I'll be tuned to NESNHD, and cheering.
