Only thing that sucked about last years run was that he was suppose to throw out first pitch in Game 6 of the WS.

Additionally he said that the only team that needs a ring now is the Cubs, but it looks as though it might take them another 88 years to win a ring :redneck

If the Sox had been so respectful to Frank Thomas, he could have been part of the ceremonies before the Series went to Houston.

Sorry gang I have no sympathy for ya. Had you had to actually use them there were no guarantees the Sox would have won the thing.

I'm glad we never had to find out.

I was at wedding the night Game 6 would have been played. I'm ecstatic the series was wrapped up in four.

Wasn't asking for sympathy just stating what I had. I knew this could happen when I purchased the tickets.

Who threw out the first pitch for Game 1 and Game 2? I don't remember.

Also, did the Red Sox invite Carlton to throw out the first pitch in either home game of the 2004 World Series? He wore their cap into the HOF, didn't he?

I assume that yours was a serious question...if so here is the answer.

Game #1 (which was never shown by Fox) had Luis Aparicio surrounded by some of his teammates from 1959 like Jim Landis, Bob Shaw and Billy Pierce among others, thrown out the first ball.

Game #2 Had Robin Ventura and Bo Jackson toss it out.

Lou Rawls sang the national anthem, he didn't toss out the first pitch.

Sorry I don't have the answer to the Red Sox question.

Thanks. So Frank Thomas didn't throw out either first pitch of the World Series? That must have been either the ALCS or ALDS.

Seems to me Fisk hasn't got anything to complain about with the Sox. Not even Boston gave him the first pitch -- and he wore their hat into the HOF. Presumably Pudge was just joking to suggest he was disappointed the series didn't go six games.
:cool:

Frank threw out the first pitch of the ALDS.

The WS Game 1 anthem was sung by Josh Groban.

How do you know he wasn't asked? Fisk couldn't make it to the 1983 team reunion (September, 2003), something even Cards manager Tony LaRussa managed to fit into his schedule. His team was in a pennant chase.

Good for Ventura and Bo. They deserved the honor, too.

Actually Fisk was at the dinner the team had at Mike Ditka's place that Thursday night. He had other weekend commitments which cause him to not be able to make the festivities on the field.

As I recall the only players who did not make ANY of the reunion were the late Aurelio Rodriguez and two Latin players Juan Agosto and Salome Barojas.
