A Bizarre 25th Anniversary

Posted on the 09 June 2011 by Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
A Bizarre 25th AnniversaryMy friend Chris Jaffe has a good article up at The Hardball Times about a truly strange injury Wade Boggs suffered on this day in 1986 that cost him a shot at hitting .400.
It involves him taking off his boots in a hotel room in Toronto and falling and suffering a rib cage injury. Check it out here.
Yep, 1986 was a truly strange year for the Red Sox, in more than just the obvious reasons.
Pete Nash of The Hauls of Shame sent me an interesting article from The Detroit News about how the Detroit Public Library is mishandling the late Ernie Harwell's great memorabilia collection and are putting it at risk for thieves.
And speaking of the Tigers, I was saddened to learn the passing of Tigers 1968 World Series hero Jim Northrup.
