Baseball is the game of summertime. In this region, the main major league team is the Boston Red Sox. They have been playing in the iconic baseball stadium, Fenway Field, for over a hundred years.
The Red Sox has a history of rivalry with the New York Yankees, especially in the 21st century.
After a long drought of World Series Championships, the Red Sox won three World Series championships (2004, 2007 and 2013). The most spectacular championship was 2004; after the Red Sox was down by three games to the Yankees in the American League Championship Series. The Red Sox won the next four games straight to take the American League Championship and go to the World Series.
Over the years, the Red Sox had many memorable players. A complete list is way too long for this blog; but the list would include Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Fred Lynn and so on. This season is the last playing season for Big Papi – David Ortiz.
When the Portland Sea Dogs come to play the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the fans are able to watch potential future Red Sox stars.
Presently, the Red Sox are playing very well with several new members on the team. Are they going to go all the way this season?
