Fenway rain delay



Steady rain throughout Thursday afternoon raised the question as to whether the Marlins would even get to face the Red Sox at night.

Here’s the view from the dugout about 5:30 for the 7:10 start.

Record day at Fenway



Wednesday night was historic for the Red Sox Nation, and the Marlins became part of history.

On hand for the 6-1 Boston win were 38,196 fans, marking the 500th consecutive sellout at Fenway Park.

The No. 500 was written into the outfield grass (as seen from the photo I took from the press box).

The streak started on May 15, 2003, which happened to be the 23rd birthday of Josh Beckett.

Beckett, now with Boston, of course was the Marlins World Series MVP in 2003.
