|Send Mary and Jared to their first Opening Day!|
Published by Jared Carrabis on 01-05-2010 01:44PM
On a previous Red Sox webcast hosted by Jared Carrabis and Mary Paoletti, the two hosts asked their producer, Rafe Anderson, for the opportunity to go to their first ever Opening Day at Fenway Park. For Paoletti, it will be her 23rd season as a Red Sox fan without having attended an Opening Day and for Carrabis, it will be the night following his 21st birthday, as he has also never been on hand for an Opening Day at Fenway Park. Rafe made a challenge to both Mary and Jared that if they could get 500 signatures on this very petition, they would be guaranteed two seats to April 4th's Red Sox Vs. Yankees Opening Day match up at Fenway Park for an ESPN night game. With your help, you can send these two avid Red Sox fans to their very first Opening Day at Fenway Park, which would be quite the gift for Jared's 21st!

We understand the need for privacy and seclusion during a tough time in someones life, but there's alot of people who really care about this man and we haven't heard from him since 5/8. You're in our thoughts and prayers every day Jerry as a friend, not just the Remdawg !!
|Zero Tolerance for Anyone Testing Positive for Banned Substances|
Published by Aloha on 06-01-2009 10:28AM
Banned substance abuse can no longer be tolerated in Major League Baseball. Stiffer penalties need to be enforced immediately to bring back the integrity of the game. I encourage all of you to read this article to help you in making your decision to sign this petition. PED use affects us all. I urge you to take a stand now. In the actual petition you will notice a phone number (212) 931-7800, where you can also voice your opinions. ( I have already done so) I have always believed in the adage "If you are not part of the solution- you are part of the problem." For whatever it's worth- I enourgage you to let your voice be heard! (and use your All-Star votes wisely.) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/12/21/AR2007122102519.html

|lower food/beer prices!|
Published by seannydeez on 05-07-2009 08:54AM
Let's keep Fenway from turning into Yankees stadium and make the prices for food and drink reasonable. A Sox game is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, but if you take a family of three, it's like paying for a mini vacation. Im no economist, but I'd like to think that if the prices were dropped, consumption would go up in turn creating more revenue.
|TV Monitors at Fenway|
Published by dirtysawxhead on 05-07-2009 07:53AM
I would estimate that15 to 20% of the fans at Fenway cannot see the big screeen in center field, which is a big disappointment considering that the Red Sox have made so many strides to make the Fenway experience one of the best in all baseball. What would be the cost of 30 or so monitors mounted on the underside of the roof so that the people in the upper grandstands can see what's going on on the big screen and the replays... etc. And one more BIG screen above section 25 or 26 facing center field for the bleacher seats and right field grandstand seats. Come-on Red Sox .... this is cheap stuff .....
|We need a change at Fox for Sox games|
Published by *SoxMama* on 04-17-2009 08:44AM
I find it a struggle to sit though a Sox game when it is on Fox. I find myself turning on the radio or going to the computer to get it. Maybe the Fox advertisers would be interested in this if many sox fans are doing the same. I beleive it's time Fox got someone we could somewhat enjoy. Truly, nobody could come close to Jerry but surely they can give us someone who actually appreciates the Sox and us Fans.
|Red Sox fans protect the good names of our baseball history!|
Published by Soxual Addiction on 04-05-2009 01:18AM
When you hear the name Yaz, you think of Red Sox, "Captain Carl", Triple Crown Winner, Hall of Famer and Baseball history. NOT birth control! The Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals company makes a birth control pill that is also proven to treat emotional and physical symptoms of PMDD. They decided to call this pill Yaz. That is just wrong. We as Red Sox Fans should stop this abomination. Send a message to Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals that we want them to change the name of their product and stop disgracing the good name of Red Sox baseball history!

|Ted Williams Stamp Petition|
Published by bosoxclub on 01-16-2009 04:36PM
For some 6 years the BoSox Club (The Official Booster Organization of the Boston Red Sox.) has been working on the task of requesting the U.S. Post Office to issue commemorative stamps in honor of Ted Williams as a tribute to his memory. Having served in two wars and having achieved the admiration of many Americans, we feel that Ted should be honored as a great man for his work in the Marines, the Jimmy Fund and his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.As you may know this has been done for such players as Ruth, Mantle, Clemente and a few others. The original postal regulations stated that they cannot issue any stamps in Ted’s honor until the 10th anniversary of his passing, July 5th 2012, and that date is our target.The Bosox Club has the support of the Williams family and the Boston Red Sox. We need the support from the press to get as many citizens as possible from around the country into this endeavor. Please contact your friends, relatives; working associates, politicians and anybody you think can help us out, especially those outside New England.Letters in support of this proposal need to be written now to;Citizens Stamp Advisory Committeec/o Stamp DevelopmentUnited States Postal Service475 L"Enfant Plaza SW, Room 5670Washington, DC 20260-3500If you would rather just sign a petition for the stamp please click on the petion link provided.

|Time For A Red Sox Museum and Hall of Fame at Fenway|
Published by Don Hyslop on 01-15-2009 05:28PM
Open Letter To Red Sox Ownership As a Red Sox fan of fifty years, I would like to thank you and the present ownership group for two World Series wins and the very competitive team you have put on the field all the years your group has been involved. I would also like to express my great appreciation for the improvements that have been made to Fenway Park. Since your group has assumed ownership of the Red Sox, I have had to opportunity to visit Fenway approximately 20 times from my perch up here in Nova Scotia. I have been impressed with the improvements that have been made to Fenway Park in each of those years. Now there is another thing that I would like to see done to make the experience of visiting Fenway even more spectacular. That thing is the construction of a Red Sox Hall of Fame and Museum to highlight the glorious history of the olde town team. A Museum to display to great moments of Sox history along with memorabilia, video highlights , computer interactive displays, a Red Sox Hall of Fame, etc is begging to be built. I have written the team over the past few years asking about this and have been told that the team wants to make it happen and is looking for a suitable site. I hope this can be resolved soon and have the Museum open to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Fenway in 2012. I know that under the previous ownerships plans for a new Fenway, a Museum was included as well. It is time! Just doing a little bit looking, I have found that the Cincinnati ball club has a Museum devoted to the Reds, as do the St. Louis Cardinals, the Baltimore Orioles, the LA Dodgers and even the Texas Rangers for their teams. The New York Yankees plan to have one in their new Yankee Stadium and Tampa Bay although not having one for their team has the Ted Williams Museum and Hitter’s Hall of Fame. It is my humble opinion that such a Museum would be an instant hit for fans and tourists alike. I hope that the team will make this a priority and will acquire a suitable property adjacent to the ballpark to make this happen. If you build it they will come, by the millions!! Respectfully yours, Don Hyslop
|RE-SIGN OUR CAPTAIN!!!!!!!!|

TEK IS THE BEST CATCHER IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW......WHETHER HIS HITTING IS GREAT OR NOT DOESNT MATTER! NO-ONE CALLS A GAME LIKE OUR CAPTAIN! HE IS THE ROCK THAT HOLDS OUR PITCHING STAFF TOGETHER, AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH!
Published by Southstander RSM on 01-12-2009 03:52PM
Now that Jim Rice has taken his place amoung the all time LEGENDS in the sport, it is time his number hang in right field with Yaz, Teddy, Fisk, Doerr, Cronin, Ronibson and Pesky. Prior to Pesky's Number being retired the critera for retirement was: Election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame At least 10 years played with the Red Sox Last Game with the Red Sox (Wavied for Fisk) Seeing how Rice exceeds at all three, his number needs to be retired! (EDIT: IS IT FATE THAT THIS IS PETITION #14...?)
|Put at least 15 games on free local broadcast in Boston in 2009|
Published by section15 on 11-25-2008 10:25AM
The Boston Red Sox have the largest fan base but look to expand it further. To honor those senior citizens who do not have viewer access to the New England Sports Network, and also the future fan base members who also may not have that access, it would stand to reason that putting 15 (or so) games back on free, over-the-air television in the 2009 season would make sense for all. We, the undersigned, ask this, and contend that it would likely not affect attendance at Fenway Park, nor would it lead to a desertion of New England Sports Network subscribers. We also feel that this would not be a charitable move on the part of the Red Sox, but a wise business and public relations decision in establishing a limited schedule televison network throughout New England.

|Petition to have voting rights revoked from Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News|
Published by Cali on 11-19-2008 01:17PM
from: http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20081118&content_id=3683864&vkey=news_bos&fext=.jsp&c_id=bos Evan Grant, the veteran baseball writer for The Dallas Morning News, admits that he made a mistake in judgment in not listing Pedroia as one of the 10 players on his ballot. Grant blogged in detail about his voting process on his newspaper's Web site on Tuesday afternoon. "Let me first say this to the Red Sox nation: In retrospect, it was a mistake," wrote Grant. Pedroia was listed in the top four in the 27 other ballots. (later in the article) Why no Pedroia? "Did I perhaps get too 'cute' at the bottom of the ballot? Yeah, probably," said Grant. "Was that a mistake? Yeah, probably. Was it a mistake to leave him out of the top five; In retrospect, yeah, it was. My colleagues all thought he belonged in the top five. My opinion on this one was obviously wrong. What I'm happiest about is that if my analysis was so wrong, at least it did not cost Pedroia the MVP Award. "I can assure you I give the MVP vote an awful lot of time. In this case, perhaps I gave it too much time and overanalyzed, particularly at the bottom of the ballot. In retrospect, it's hard to argue that Pedroia wasn't one of the 10 best players in the league." --Now can you imagine someone being snubbed from the HOF because this guy, or a similar writer, "made a mistake." This is the next major issue the commissioners office needs to address. I don't mind certain writers get a vote, but lets not give them supreme control on such illustrious awards.

|Let Johnny Pesky sit on bench|
Published by bostonsports17 on 11-16-2008 11:42AM
I have started this petition because Johnny Pesky has been a role model to the Major League and has worked in the Boston Red Sox organization for nearly 60 years. Last year the Red Sox rewarded him by retiring his number. Pesky used to sit on the bench for the Red Sox game, but the MLB has since made a rule that a team can only have a certain amount of coaches on their bench....Pesky has since watched the Red Sox games in the clubhouse with his uniform on. With more than 60 years of service for the MLB and more to come Pesky at least deserves to sit on the bench. Pesky has expressed that he misses sitting on the bench. Why is it a big deal that the 89 year old can sit on a bench with his team of 60 years?
|Retire Tony C's number 25|
Published by Jared Carrabis on 11-06-2008 04:33PM
Born just a stones throw from Fenway Park in Revere, MA, Tony Conigliaro entered the hearts of New England as a member of the Boston Red Sox at young age of just 19-years-old. Conigliaro homered in his very first at bat at Fenway Park hitting a shot over the Green Monster and into the screen.In his rookie season in 1964, Conigliaro hit .290 with 24 home runs and 52 RBI. His second season with the Boston Red Sox proved to be even better when Tony C led the American League in home runs with 32.In that magical season of the Impossible Dream, Conigliaro was selected to play in the 1967 All Star game at the age of 22 and in that same season became the youngest player to hit a total of 100 home run in their career. With 25 home runs, Conigliaro holds the Major League record for most home runs by a teenager.Tragically, the promising career of Tony Conigliaro came to a crashing halt when on the night of August 18, 1967 a fastball out of the hand of Jack Hamilton collided with the cheekbone of the hometown hero. An unfortunate accident tragically altered what had the makeup to being a sure Hall of Fame career, but now we will never know.Tony C returned to the Red Sox a year and a half later in 1969 hitting 20 home runs with 81 RBI for the Red Sox. His incredible efforts of determination and prosperity earned him the Comeback Player of the Year award. If there was a such thing as the Comeback Player of the Century award, I'm sure Tony Conigliaro would be atop the list to receive such an honor.How am I so sure of this? Well, beginning in 1990, the Red Sox instituted an award in honor of Tony Conigliaro. The award is given annually to the player that "best overcomes an obstacle and adversity through the attributes of spirit, determination and courage that were trademarks of Conigliaro".After the pitch that ended his 1967 season, Tony C put together his best season in his career even after his vision had been impaired by the misguided fastball. In 1970, Conigliaro belted 36 home runs and drove in 116 runs, both of which were career highs for the slugging Sox outfielder.Tony C batted .267 in his years with the Red Sox with a total of 162 home runs and drove in a total of 501 runs in the 802 games in which he played wearing a Boston Red Sox uniform.On February 24, 1990, our beloved Tony Conigliaro passed away at the age of 45. Tony C will always be remember as one of the greatest and most inspirational players to ever don the Red Sox uniform. In his honor, and I know I don't stand alone when I say this, I propose this petition to see that the next number to be retired by the Boston Red Sox is the number 25 worn by Tony Conigliaro throughout his entire career with the Red Sox.I would like to thank anyone who signs this petition in advance as I'm sure there will be many of you. The retiring of his number 25 is long overdue and with your help, we can see that it is finally done.
