Speaking of Pesky...

....I heard he was not allowed in the dugout this season, and was not happy about it. Is there any new news on that?

And of course the season doesn't REALLY get going until the first Boston/New York series. Happy

It's just not as much fun when you can't shout "NINE-TEEN-EIGH-TEEN" anymore. Wink

Be quiet.

And yes, there was an interview with Larry Luccino yesterday I believe, about Johnny Pesky. Apparently its an old ruling about so many in the dugout. Luccino is not happy about it all of a sudden now being enforced, but they can't make exceptions to it for fear others will want in, so I guess Pesky is out. I'll see if I can find some info on it.

George...7 to 1 now. Happy

BOSTON -- Red Sox great Johnny Pesky has been hit with another eviction notice by Major League Baseball.

According to the Boston Globe, baseball officials have decided to strictly enforce its rule governing who is allowed in a team's dugout during a game.

That means means Pesky, who's in his 55th season with the club, can no longer sit on the bench during games.

He'll still be allowed in uniform before games and on the field and in the clubhouse.

This has happened before, in 1997 and again in 2004. He returned to the dugout a year later, with MLB raising no objection, until this spring. End of Story

So far Larry Luccino is not going to buck it and MLB won't make any exceptions.

".... buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks....."

Years ago we used to go to some games in Kansas City. Saw Roger Maris and some other Hall of Famers play.

Haven't been to any pro games since then. Just wondering if they still sell Crackerjacks.:-)

We were, of course, Braves fans for years.

There is a farm club here, and the games are well attended. Plans are for a new stadium. It ran into some financial bumps with the developer, but hopefully it will pan out one day.

Enjoy the "Boys of Summer" season, George!

Take me out to the ballgame...

Thanks Angeline. I sure will enjoy the season, whether the Sox win or not, but its always better when they win. Happy 14 to 3 today. I love sports. I'm very lucky in the fact, my wife loves baseball too. If only I can get her interested into football, I would be on a roll.

I'll probably never get into Fenway Park again, but the thrill is there, just watching the game on TV. I can still taste those Hot Dogs. My son took 2 of his kids in there one week end and he said; Dad, $50.00 and they were still hungry.

Hot dogs
by Angeline Booher / April 10, 2007 11:25 PM PDT

Hot dogs taste best with a ball game in front of them. Happy

Back in our Little League concession stand days we had a hot dog steamer and bun warmer. We topped them with dried onions we soaked in water, and had relish, mustard, and pickles available.

Re-hydrated onions might sound icky, but they all tasted great while watching the games!

Our family enjoyed the sports of the season, even if most of it was watching them on TV. We all remember Bart Starr's quarterback sneal to beat Dallas in the cold of Green Bay, and Tom Matte quarterbacking the Colts, and winning. Can't forget Phil Niekro's knuckleball pitching, either.

It looks like the Fenway Franks are going to have some competion. Heard a rumor they are going to serve Sushi tonight at Fenway for the game.

Its our new million dollar wonder boy's debut on the hill tonight, Daisuke Matsuzaka (Dice-K) facing Ichiro Suzuki. I've heard it so much on TV now, even I can pronouce their names. Happy

Ichiro and Dice-K are not alone. Both have countryman teammates -- Seattle catcher Kenji Johjima and Boston reliever Hideki Okajima.

How do you say "Play Ball" in Japanese. Grin

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
