Eleven more hours and the Red Sox will begin a brand new season!! I am so psyched! We have a great team this year. Ahhh, baseball makes me sooooo happy!!
The Red Sox are playing their first game at home this year. Hopefully the weather will hold out. Rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast. Below are some photos from today’s Boston Globe of the team working out.
Big Papi (David Ortiz) loosening up before taking batting practice.
Tim Wakefield, manager Terry Francona, Mike Lowell and Dustin Pedroia fielding
Jason Bay in left field with Opening Day 2009 spelled out on the Green Monster.
Some of the new seats installed in Fenway.
I also have to give a shout out for Annie’s basketball team. The game for all the marbles is tomorrow night. Go Heels!!
*Edited Monday (from the Red Sox site): “Not taking any chances, the Red Sox saved fans the annoyance of sitting through excessive delays and inclement weather by announcing shortly after 10 a.m. ET on Monday that the team’s first Fenway Park season opener since 2002 had been rescheduled for Tuesday at 4:05 p.m. ET. “
