I am 74 years old and a lifelong Red Sox fan. My Granddad took me to my first game at Fenway when I was 10 years old. I was born in East Boston, moved to Winthrop when I was 7, and graduated from Northeastern. Spent two years in the Army (1967-1969) and moved west for my job (last stop was Akron, Ohio where I worked for General Tire). It was difficult being a Red Sox fan in Ohio, especially during the years when the Indians were a bad team. My boss at GT was a Yankee fan, so we had a lot of friendly disagreements. I look forward to discussing the Sox with people who share my lifelong love for the team.
