I remember the first time I ever went to Fenway to watch the Sox play. Sure I had heard them on the radio and watched a few games on TV, but sitting on the first base line, right over the dugout. Unbelieveable! It was love at first sight.
My problem is I can’t let go. When I like a player, or coach, or even manager I can’t bear to see them leave. Either with injury or a trade or retirement.
Well it’s happening again, Mike Lowell is retiring. I understand his hip just won’t come back. I know when he is out on the field he gives it all, but he feels this is the end. Time to throw in the towel.
I really missed him on third base this season, and hate the thought of him off the sox permanently
But time goes on and things change, and I’m sure someday the Sox will have another third baseman that wins the Golden Glove. I just hope we don’t have to wait to long.
Adios` Mike, you made it look so easy!
