Happy Birthday this Week

20 Apr

Two Very Special Birthdays this week

God blessed us with Sarah 28 years ago April 19th.
I thought it a fitting to post a picture taken of Sarah and Jeremy at Fenway park….


……because today, April 20th, Fenway Park celebrates it’s 100th birthday.


The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees will face each other on Friday at 3:05 p.m., just as they did on the same date at the same time on the same field 100 years ago.

Both clubs will wear replicas of the uniforms they wore for that inaugural game, played on April 20, 1912. All living Red Sox uniformed personnel were invited to participate.

Oscar-winning composer John Williams will conduct members of the Boston Pops in the debut of his new composition, "Fanfare for Fenway," in ceremonies that are expected to begin shortly after 2 p.m.

Gates will open at 12:30 p.m., a special opening time in light of the occasion.
Keith Lockhart will conduct members of the Boston Pops for the National Anthem as well as "Hymn to New England," also composed by Williams.
At the conclusion of the anthem, the Air Force’s Heritage Flight team will fly in a four-ship formation fly-over that will include two F-16s from Shaw Air Force Base and two World War II era P-51 Mustangs. Military personnel from Hanscom Air Force Base will be on hand to present the colors, which will be draped over the Green Monster.
Friday’s ceremonies will also include a toast to Fenway Park. When fans arrive at their seats, they will find a grape juice drink and cups beneath their seats or in cup holders. The crowd will be invited to participate in the toast at the end of the pre-game ceremonies, in an attempt to set a world record for the largest toast in a single venue. Fans are asked to be in their seats by 2 p.m. to enjoy the pre-game ceremony and to participate in the toast.
