Fenway Park

Gary Borders

There are magical times when one gets to witness a small piece of history being made. They are rare but stick with you. At Boston’s Fenway Park, built in 1912 and one of my favorite places in the world, I watched the Red Sox clinch a tie for the pennant in 1967, beating the Minnesota Twins. They won the next game as well to make it to the World Series for the first time since 1946, but they lost to the Cardinals in seven games. They lost again in the 1975 and 1986 World Series.

With October right around the corner, Major League Baseball fans are about to settle in to their easy chairs to watch their favorite teams battle it out on the road to the World Series. Commentator Gary Borders will back burner pretty much everything to watch his beloved Boston Red Sox make their first playoff appearance in four years.

All the signs of springtime point to it. Baseball season is here, and commentator Gary Borders is thinking about those boys of summer and how they move around too much.
