Old Man on the Right Side of History

I heard a wonderful story yesterday on NPR about a CT man who wanted to attend the Red Sox-Yankees game for his 100th birthday and to be the bat boy. It would seem that he’s one of the few elderly Sox fans who didn’t just give up after the 2004 World Series and go to their maker happy.

But I must urge you to listen to the short story and pay special attention to the jersey he’s going to wear. The way the reporter says it makes my skin crawl.
