Pitching, Pitching and More Pitching
Amazing performance by Javier Vazquez today. Funny that I wrote about no-hitters just the other day, and his performance today was certainly no-hit quality. The swinging bunt was luck and even the second hit hardly bent grass in right field.
This ballpark, which celebrated its 15th anniversary yesterday, has never seen a no-hitter.
Blame it on Roger
I am going to blame that first hit on my good friend Roger Bossard, our head groundskeeper. Stupid ball stayed fair.
With today’s crowd, we have now passed last year’s season total for tickets sold. If we don’t sell another ticket this year, we still have the fourth largest attendance total in franchise history. Thanks for your support Sox fans. When you see our team and some of the long-term contracts given to our players, it is directly because of your commitment.
To Maria Wagner
How nice of you to pass your tickets along to a fellow Sox fan. Really appreciate the gesture.
