August 22, 2009 RSN NY at Fenway

What a time we had at Fenway Saturday! The Sox cooperated completely by annihilating the Yankees 14-1 behind a rookie picture. But, I got the feeling from the reaction among our crowd of 100 that it wouldn't have mattered much had they lost.

From the start the deck was stacked in our favor. On one bus heading up was former Sox starter and Yankee killer, Jerry Casale, who was celebrating the 50th anniversary of his rookie of the year season with the Sox. Jerry also owned the first "Sox Bar" in NYC which he ran on 34th street for many years.

On the other bus was Jazz star John Pizzarelli who performed the anthem before the game.

It felt like the game couldn't start without us.

The Sox supplied us with Red Sox Nation New York signs and sent the jumbo-tron camera by to broadcast us on the board. And, NESN shot us all day for a piece they're doing about the trip.

All in all, not too shabby for a day at the park.

Thanks to Sox and everyone that helped make this trip possible.

The Boston Globe made mention of the trip here, sorta.

Here's a link to the photos I took: RSN NY Trip.
Here's some that Jerry's family took: The Casales.
And, here's Pizz doing the anthem: You Tube.

Here are some more by partaker Eden.
And then even more here.
