Why I am a Red Sox Fan

Hey, everyone else is doing them!

I was 10 years old in 2007 when the Red Sox went on their World Series run. I always knew what the Red Sox were and semi rooted for them. I remember being very little and always hearing the Red Sox on in the background. My mom and dad are big fans and always had the game on. Every time I hear the FOX music it reminds me of being 4 because I always remember hearing that with my dad watching baseball.

In the summer of 2007 my sister became a big Red Sox fan. I wanted to have something in common with her, so I started watching the games in the ALCS against the Indians. I think it was when Drew hit that grand slam I was hooked.

The next season they started in Japan at 6am. Everyone expected my sister to get up and watch the game. But she didn't, I did. I watched every game that 2008 season and I have missed only 10 games since I became a fan.

It was the offseason of 2008 I knew I wanted to be in the game the rest of my life. I didn't know how though. I discovered the website MLB Trade Rumors and read how the guy who made it just made it as a hobby and it grew. That inspired me to do the same.

I created bestbostonsports.com and wrote there for about two years. I knew I wanted to be a baseball writer. Now I have the opportunity to write at bostonsportsthenandnow.com, minorleagueball.com and my own site, battingninthbaseball.blogspot.com. On BST&N and MLB I write about the minor leagues. On BN, I just write about baseball, and that site has been very successful since I began it.

My dream is to be in the Fenway Park press box, either writing about the game or announcing it. But what made me a fan was that 2007, and now I always will be.
