Ted Postage Stamp Aprroved!

It was a long time coming, but the U.S. Postal Service has approved a Ted Williams stamp—to be joined in a series with stamps for Larry Doby, Willie Stargell and Joe DiMaggio.

Thousands of fans from around the world helped in the effort to get this stamp approved, but none more than Bruce Donahue—past president of the BoSox Club. He deserves the lion's share of credit for persevering through all the ups and downs of the approval process. Congratulations, Bruce! A great Red Sox player and a great American is finally being honored with a commemorative stamp.

'Oil Can', Andrew Miller Visit BoSox Club

Lanky (6'7") Red Sox left-handed starter Andrew Miller visited the BoSox Club at their luncheon today at the Westin Hotel in Waltham. Also in attendance were former Sox star Dennis 'Oil Can' Boyd—of the 1986 American League Championship team.

Radio and TV personality Dale Arnold emceed the event, which also included appearances by Bob Davis (long-time Royals broadcaster) and Royals LHP Tim Collins (from Worcester, MA).

Oil Can shared his advice with the attendees (and the two young pitchers) by stressing "first-pitch strikes" and "pitching to contact" to get hitters out. He talked about how even power pitchers—like his former teammate Roger Clemens—pitched to contact. As "The Can" pointed out, this also leads to shorter ballgames.

Remembering Jackie Jensen

For those of us old enough and lucky enough to have seen Jackie Jensen play for the Red Sox, it's one of the few good memories of an era when not much went right for the Carmine Hose. Jensen—who broke into the big leagues as a Yankee—came to the Red Sox in a "Heathcliff Slocumb-like" deal in 1953. Jackie was shipped to Fenway from the Washington Senators for two immortals—Mickey McDermott and Tom Umphlett. McDemott had a decent .500 pitching career and Umphlett retired at age 25.

Jackie Jensen patrolled right field in Boston for seven years—hitting .282 with a .374 OPB. He was an All-Star twice and launched 170 home runs for the Sox. In 1958 he hit 35 home runs and knocked in 122—he was the American League MVP. Not a bad trade. Jackie died far too soon at age 55 in 1982. Had he lived, he would have been 84 years old today. We will always remember him as the dynamic right-handed counter-punch to Ted Williams.
