I just checked. The only time the Sox won Game 7 of a World Series was 1903 -- before even my time!

Thank you for a wonderful almost-perfect season! Very enjoyable!

Technically they won it in 1912 (I think you were 2 years old right?) but that was actually game 8 because of the tie.

Glad you enjoyed it.

I remember the Cardinal family section in the roof boxes (or whatever they’re called now) down the left field line emptying out immediately but every other seat was occupied.
Shown here, as viewed from my seat.

As much as I envy your fortune in being there, and understand why it would elevate the contest in your eyes, I don't think that's the Game 6 I would have chosen.

Edit: I just noticed the editor's note above.

I only saw part of Game 6 in 1975. I was eight. My parents sent me to bed after the seventh or so, very dejected.

The next day, I woke up to see a handwritten sign from my dad on my bedroom wall. "Carbo homer in the 8th ties it. Fisk wins it in the 12th. Game 7 tonight." I shrieked and jumped out of bed to hear the details.

That's awesome SoSH. Very cool.

Yeah, when I started doing this my goal was to put in as many personal memories as I could. Seeing the Sox win a World Series in person, I meant that's it as a baseball fan isn't it? The only thing that could have been better was if it was a game 7.
