On the field at the Red Sox game AWESOME!

I just got back from Fenway. AWESOME GAME! We beat the Braves 6-5. Big Papi hit a HR & Green got a walk off HR to win it! I got to see Papelbon pitch!
View imageThe Kid Nation Captains got to go on the field for pre game ceremonies! Our seats were under cover too so we didn’t even get wet. It was so much fun & our next Kid Nation project is the one I suggested- backpacks for kids! Hood is buying the back packs but we’re gonna collect the stuff to fill them. I’m so excited!

Tix on sale today, Tek, Scouting, Hot Stove, Trezza, Papelbon & other Thoughts

I know I haven’t update this much but I have a broken arm, we moved & I have been redoing my room Red Sox. Then there’s always homework & that takes forever. Anyway for Christmas & my birthday my whole room was redone Red Sox & I got an autographed Jonathan papelbon ball & a pair of Red Sox tickets for Christmas. I told Grandma to go online today & buy more tickets but she said that’s noy gonna happen.

In Nov. I got a letter from YAZ on a HOF card with his autograph thanksing me for the get well card I made and sent to him in the hospital. Isn’t that cool? I can’t believe he wrote to me.

A couple of months ago I opened a fb account & that’s pretty cool. Some of the Red Sox trivia questions I submitted were published.

Anyway… I wrote to Tito over the winter but he didn’t write back so I hope he reads this and if  anyone knows address for Red Sox scouts please forard this to them for me. Do whatever you have to do to sign Tek & PLEASE while you’re at it get Alex Trezza. Tek is great but he’s getting older & Trezza is ready to step up. GIVE HIM A SHOT! He’s got the agility, ability to lead,great batting average & is a team player. Last year he set CanAm League records If you don’t know Trezza check out his stats. Trezza had a very productive season for Worcester last year at the plate and as catcher. He ripped a three-run home run in his first at-bat in a Tornadoes uniform, was one of four Worcester hitters with at least 10 Home Runs and 50 RBIs Trezza also homered in both ends of a doubleheader vs. New Jersey on 6/24 and finished up the season strong by knocking in 28 runs in his final 32 games. Trezza threw out 32.2% of attempted basestealers, including 20 of the last 43 men (46.5%) that tried to swipe a base against him. A team leader and a gamer, Trezza was the only Tornadoes player to appear in all 94 games in 2008. That set a new Worcester record for games played in a season and tied a Can-Am League record as well. THE RED SOX NEED TREZZA!

Sell Out Record at Fenway & other thoughts

I sure wish I was gonna be at the game tonight. But I will be watching on TV. We have been to 11 games this year. And we have tickets for the game Friday night! YEAH! I think it’s awesome we set a sell out record but it’s kind of bad too for us fans that can’t go to all the games because we can’t get tickets & they cost so much. I was talking to people I know that used to go to Fenway 40 or 50 years ago. They told me lots of cool stories like you could go the day of the game and buy a ticket cheap because not many people went to the games. And you could hang out by the field and get autographs and stuff like that. Sometimes I wish it was still like that because  It reminds me of how the North Shore Spirit games were. I went to almost every North Shore Spirit game for 5 years. I really miss the Spirit.

 The players, people who worked there and other fans all knew my name. We could hang out by the field and get autographs when the guys were on the field and after the game. The players and managers were always so nice to us kids and treated us like we were important. We laughed, cheered and even cried together.  It was like a big family. We were family because we all loved the North Shore Spirit. Sometimes when there wasn’t a Spirit game the Fraser Faithful would get together to watch Red Sox games. I miss the North Shore Spirit especially my favorite catcher Alex Trezza and still cry sometimes because the team is never coming back. Their last game was in 2007. 

But I’ve been a Red Sox fan since I can remember and I’m glad I have the Red Sox and Red Sox Nation. I’m glad I am a Kid Nation Captain and part of the Red Sox Nation family. Thanks Remy, Regular Rob, Joe Chamas, PAPELBON, Schilling, Pedroia, Kid Nation Captains and the rest of my Red Sox family. You’re the best. Sometimes I don’t think people know how much the Red Sox means to us kids. It’s like family and Fenway park is like home. It’s a place we can go and have fun and be a part of a big family where everybody belongs. When you’re cheering for the Red Sox no one cares is you’re a little kid or old. It doesn’t matter how fast you can run or how smart you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor or one of the cool kids. We just love the Red Sox so we’re family. 

Now if we can just beat the Rays every game in this home stand take back the lead in the AL. I’m glad Lester is pitching. I like him and it was awesome watching him pitch a no hitter. He got cured of cancer & I hope everybody realizes how important it is to find a care for cancer so no more people die from it.

Red Sox/White Sox Aug. 29 Game

I had a bad week. My favorite counselor from the YMCA Miss Jocelyn drowned in Salem and I was sad. Her funeral was Friday and I was really sad. I loved her a lot. She taught me to swim and always made us laugh. She was a real good artist too.  My Grandma wanted to cheer me up so we went to Boston and we got tickets for the game from Hig’s tickets. They were awesome seats. We were 3 rows behind the Red Sox Bullpen. Jonathan Papelbon was hanging out in the Bullpen and I got to get real close to him. I got a picture of his car in the players parking lot too. He has a cool black Mercedes. The Red Sox beat the White Sox BIG TIME

Thought on Tampa Series

I have always been a Sox fan and love my team.  I hate to say anything bad about the team I love so much but it HURTS watching them play lately. 

There were some bad calls by the umps last night & it cost us 2 runs but I think Dice K bears a lot of the blame for our loss. From the day we signed Dice K I’ve been saying he’s overpaid and overrated. All he knows how to do is walk people. He wouldn’t know a fast ball if it hit him in the head and he’s an embarrassment. I’ve watched every game since I can remember but when he’s pitching I have to admit I think about not watching. It’s so embarrassing.

I also have to say I think the Devil Rays deliberately walking Youk 2 times in 1 game was pretty low class and poor sportsmanship. And to all you people whining about Varitek- give hima  break. He’s in a hitting slump but is a great catcher and team captain.

I don’t think Tampa should have played Sweet Caroline after sweeping us either. I think it was pretty rude.
