I still can’t believe I’m a Red Sox Kid Nation Captain! I can’t wait to meet all the other winners at Fenway. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who voted for me. This is a story that was in The Daily Item on July 2. Click on the small article to read the story.
We had a great win last night & I’m hoping for a sweep tonight. I’m so glad it’s FINALLY baseball season & I still have my Red Sox to cheer for. I’m still sad the North Shore Spirit (a CanAm League team) aren’t coming back to Lynn this year. I went to every game at Fraser Field for 5 years because tickets were cheap and it’s only 5 minutes from my house. I also watched all the Red Sox games on TV last year- except the ones they played when I was in school. But there’s nothing like being at the ballpark 4 or 5 times a week with all my friends.I’m REALLY going to miss going to Fraser Field this summer. I knew all the players and they all knew me by name too. You could go right down to the field and get autographs b4 the game. I’ve never been able to get an autograph at a Sox game. But I still I wish I had season tickets for the Red Sox and could go to every game at Fenway. It’s so much more fun than watching it at home on TV but I can’t. I went to 3 games at Fenway this year and Grandma said that was my allowance for the whole year. I don’t understand why tickets have to be so expensive and hard to get for the Red Sox. People should stop trying to hog all the tickets when they go sale just so they can sell them for more money. That’s not fair to real fans. Go Red Sox!
