The Red Sox sellout streak may end however as tickets are still available as of 5:40



In a pregame ceremony roughly 20 minutes before Monday's first pitch, the Red Sox will officially name that foul pole above the Green Monster "The Fisk Pole" in honor of the Hall of Fame catcher.

"Fans had suggested it, we had thought about it," said Charles Steinberg, executive vice president/public affairs for the Sox. "But what really was the catalyst was Interleague Play giving you a chance to have the 30th anniversary celebration of one of the greatest World Series in baseball history." Fisk, who couldn't attend this season's historic home opener because of a prior obligation, will take part in the celebration. Expect him to be involved in some type of first pitch, perhaps with his batterymate from 1975, the charismatic Luis Tiant.

I think the Fake Sox or Flubs are going to be the first team to install a 'center field foul pole' just to accomadate more warm fuzzy feelings. Who knows, a 'right centerfield foul pole' might not be too far behind that.

They do need to name the Tru-link installation the "Sandberg Basket."

Me too. I always refer to it as the Fair Pole. The ball hits it: it's fair! Not a hard concept.

No way... rename the stadium "Spaceman Park", after the greatest Red Socker of them all... doesn't it have a marvelous ring to it? :D:

And I dedicate my 1,000th post to Bill Lee... :bandance:

The Fisk Pole, Pesky's Pole...BAH...it's just a matter of time before we have the "Right Field Foul Pole brought to you buy Comcast" or the "Ameriquest Left Foul Pole"

Hmmm...maybe I shouldn't have used teal for that.:tongue:

Everything being said, good for Fisk. Nice touch they did it vs. the Reds too, but only the 1918 World Series counts for anything these days.

The article in the Tribune today says that Fisk was also presented with a World Series ring. Was he still part of their front office last year, or are they just giving them to anybody they want?

I love Fisk as much as the next guy, but this could be one of the most overrated highlights in all of baseball. They lost the damn series. I don't want to hear about it anymore.

Anyone vaguely familiar with the fact that there is a baseball team in Boston is being awarded a ring.
