What better way to celebrate the First of May than a day game at that “lyric little bandbox” of a ballpark, Fenway Park, aka the Shrine?
Surviving Grady put it best:
“It couldn’t have been scripted any better in Hollywood. The aging veteran pitching well in a spot-start. The aging DH coming up with a big hit. The much-maligned reliever…never mind, Jenks still sucked. And for the finale, the struggling free agent with a walk-off RBI single to win it.”
Taking it all in with my son at my side and fresh scorebook in my lap, to quote the cliche: priceless.
