October 28, 2004.
This morning I e-mailed with a friend. We discussed how much history has been made since the Red Sox last won a World Series. I was working on a file for one of my office’s clients who was born in 1919- just one year after that win. During his life he has seen the Great Depression, World War II, the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, the Cuban Missile Crisis, 9/11 and now the first Red Sox World Title since he was born. Isn’t it remarkable? The world can change so much and yet circle around right back to the beginning.
And speaking of circles my parents found my Louisville Slugger. After all these years and countless searches it suddenly turned up in the most logical of places. My mom reminded me that it bears the signature of Wade Boggs. I bought that bat in 1984 when Wade Boggs played for a little team called…the Boston Red Sox. It may take a lifetime to come around but some things are just meant to be.
