Sixteen hours after this photo was taken the Red Sox finished their first game of the 2010 season. They came from behind to beat the New York Yankees in what was one of the best opening day games ever (they led, we caught up, they led again, we surpassed them for good).
Petey threw out the first pitch, Joshua Sacco recreated his “Miracle” speech, and Neil Diamond sang Sweet Caroline live in the middle of the 8th inning. I wasn’t there, but I could feel the excitement 3000 miles away. I hope this is just a taste of what the season holds for us. So like Johnny Pesky roared tonight – play ball!
