History, Baseball, and the Massachusetts Historical Society

2004 World Series Trophy Sometimes dreams come true.

If you have followed this blog for awhile, or connected with me on Twitter or Facebook, you know I am a diehard baseball fan. I root for the Boston Red Sox, a team I have followed since the 1986 season.

In 2011, my fondness for the sport, and the Sox, reached a new level of passion: After nearly 10 years of waiting, Tim and I became season ticket holders.

As season ticket holders, we earn points for each game we attend in person. We use those points to bid on experiences, like spending an inning inside the Green Monster (it was awesome!) or the opportunity to spend a day with one of the Red Sox's World Series trophies.

On October 24, 2015 between 10am and 1pm, Tim and I will be spending our day with the 2004 World Series trophy at the Massachusetts Historical Society. We would love for you to join us.

We hope that by bringing the trophy to the MHS, we will encourage friends, family, and strangers to visit this wonderful organization and to take some time to explore its fantastic history exhibits, which on October 24 will include a special pop-up display of early baseball items from the MHS's collections.

Please come and enjoy a wonderful day of history and baseball.

Also, please help spread the word about this event.
