....why the heck did they play a game there in January in the middle of the winter? It must have been freezing there!
That was part of the Sox "round the world" tour with the N.Y. Giants. Took most of the off season, played I want to say 48 games against the Giants in England, Italy, Australia, Egypt, Hawaii and other places.
By the way the MLB TV channel broadcasts games from Australia during our winter.
