Will today be the day?

My random, desktop image of the day turned out to be this one. Weird, no? The last time the Red Sox won a World Series at home in Fenway Park was 1918. Will they do it again tonight?

Omar Vizquel

I meant to post something about Omar Vizquel near the end of the 2012 baseball season, just before he retired, but I forgot that I had watched him play twice (once in Oakland and once in Boston) last year until this photo came up as my random, desktop image of the day.

Omar is actually older than me. With his retirement I became older than every active MLB player which makes me feel very old. As a kid I remember thinking how old the players all were. Now they all seem so young. What happened?

Vizquel had some great years between 1992 and 2006, winning 11 Gold Gloves during that stretch. He finished his career with nearly 3,000 hits and over 400 stolen bases.

Today’s photo was taken at Boston’s Fenway Park during its 100-year anniversary year.

Going, going, gone! Goodbye 2012.

Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays hits a home run (way!) over Fenway Park’s Green Monster and the fans sitting on the Green Monster react.

Fenway Park turned 100 years old in 2012. I visited it for the first time.

In 2013 I’ll be watching most of my baseball games in Gwangju Mudeung Baseball Stadium, home of the Kia Tigers of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO or 한국 야구 위원회).

Today’s photo is a photomerge of more than half a dozen photos taken from the seat I previously mentioned here. This would have been a great seat, had there not been people (fans, ushers, and vendors) walking in front of me constantly. There were very few pitches in which I could see both the pitcher and the batter and quite a few pitches in which I couldn’t see either.

It’s tough to tell, given the wide angle of the lens coupled with a photomerge in Photoshop of numerous pics, but David Ortiz is the batter against Ricky Romero. Big Papi hit his 399th career home run in this game as Romero was roughed up for just his second loss (eight victories) on the season.

Boston Red Sox tickets went on sale this morning

Fenway Park

This June we are taking a vacation to New York and Boston. I’m planning on seeing the Yankees, Mets, and Red Sox. This morning individual, single-game tickets went on sale for the Red Sox so I grabbed up four seats not too far behind the dugout. They weren’t cheap, but I’m happy. Look for some photos from the game on this blog in late June.

Here is a more close-up view of our seats (B157, Row BB) labeled “HERE” in the images:
