More Hiking For The '12 Red Sox

Article from the Providence Evening Tribune, March 7, 1912, one hundred years ago today. More hiking up mountains for the Red Sox. A three-hour tour! And this time, Nuf Ced is included in the article. I like how they tell you the players wore "flaming red sweaters," something the pictures of the day couldn't.

I'd also like to point out that this paper and others were referring to the New York team as the Yankees pretty consistently by 1912. I know that back in those days, nicknames weren't really "official," but I think we should move that date back, the date they "became" the Yankees. Every time we mention that first game at Fenway, we have to talk about the "Highlanders." I think we can start saying "the Red Sox beat the Yankees in the first game at Fenway Park." But that's just my opinion.

I loved how the pitchers and catchers worked out in the driveway in front of their hotel--Mom
