FenwayNation's Home Page From 15 Years Ago (May '01)

Wow, I guess we've been around for a while! Here is FenwayNation's Home Page as it appeared just about 15 years ago (May 17, 2001). As you will see, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Sox playing at the Huntington Avenue Grounds (now on the campus of Boston's Northeastern University) and we also ran a poll asking readers if Dante Bichette should play every day. Now there's an issue you can sink your teeth into! Then there was this classic cryptic quote from Jimy ('Yoda') Williams about how a Manny Ramirez HR could possibly start out foul and then curve fair, "I'm not the ball. The ball's the only one who knows." Ah, the Golden Days!
