Happy Saturday! We’ve made it to the weekend. The Bruins are in action against Buffalo at 1:00 PM ET. Tonight the Red Sox face the Texas Rangers at 7:05 PM ET. It’s May 1st and that means we can flash back to 2006…when the legend of Doug Mirabelli was born. The knuckleball specialist was traded back to the Red Sox just in the nick of time! He even needed a police escort to make it to the park. Enjoy Saturday, talk about the past, and be good to one another.
May 1, 2006 Doug Mirabelli gets a police escort to @fenwaypark to catch Tim Wakefield vs the Yankees after the #RedSox reacquire him from the Padres. His plane landed in Boston at 6:48 pm and he changed in the car. #WBZ camera was there! pic.twitter.com/TPUVCxyxsA— Joe Giza (@JoeGiza) April 16, 2019
