As I mentioned late last week in my entry, Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox and the team's ballpark, Fenway, symbolically represent the very heart of Boston.
With the 2009 season starting this week it seemed only appropriate to flashback to an earlier era in Red Sox history. The photo of Clemens (pre-steroid) in 1983 contrasts with the Red Sox new ace pitcher, Josh Beckett.
It is hard to believe that Clemens joined the Red Sox some 26 years ago, but it is even harder for me to get my head around the fact that Josh Beckett was only 3 years old then.
Good luck Red Sox...
