Ted Williams, ranked #…we won’t spoil it for you!
Bleacher Report has a nice slideshow with their picks for the 25 greatest players in Boston Red Sox history. Always a fun trip to remember the sluggers of yesteryear.

Neat to see players like Cy Young (there is a little ol’ award named after him) and Babe Ruth battling with more contemporary players such as Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez.

Game 6, 1975 World Series. Boston Red Sox v. Cincinnati Reds.
Game tied 3-3, bottom of the 12th inning. Were Cincinnati to win, they would win the series.
Up to bat comes Carlton “Pudge” Fisk. On the second pitch from Cincinnati’s Sparky Anderson, Fisk sends the ball singing over left field. Hopping up and down like a pogo stick, Fisk hopes the ball will pull right; he waves both arms rightward, his face emotes a wind-blasted expression.
The ball hits the left-field pole above the Green Monster–the high left-field wall at Fenway Park.
The Series goes to game 7, which the Red Sox win 2-0.
On June 13, 2005, the Red Sox named the left foul pole the “Fisk Foul Pole.”

Of course he did. According to his dedication website, “He received his nickname “Shoeless,” after playing a minor league game in his stockings because a new pair of spikes had given him blisters on his feet the previous day.”
Mr. Jackson even played for the Chicago White Sox.

Dr. Seuss published Fox in Sox in 1965. This fox named Fox runs through varied lyrical permutations, and densely-rhymed verbal gymnastics, as he befuddles the somewhat dim-witted character Knox. Who lands the final blow?
Below is a video with the LP version of this classic reading of Fox in Socks. The professional reading arrests the listener. Enjoy!
