Twelve Years Ago Today—The Red Sox World Changed

If you were lucky enough to be in attendance at Fenway Park on October 17, 2004, you witnessed the nascent stages of a Red Sox re-birth. On that night, in Game Four of the ALCS, The Carmine Hose (down three games to none) forged a comeback against The Evil Ones that would ultimately lead to their first World Championship in 86 years. The four catalysts of the re-birth were: a ninth-inning walk by Kevin Millar, an epic steal of second-base by his pinch-runner Dave Roberts, a game-tying single by Bill Mueller and a 12th-inning game-winning HR by David Ortiz. Nest stop—DuckBoats in RingVille. Twelve years ago today—savor it!
