My favorite memory is quite simple. Just before game 4 of the 2004 ALCS when they were on the brink of elimination, Kevin Millar said to Dan Shaughnessy, "Don't let us win today."
“For me, that was when it all changed - Ched Noseby
Mine is more about the organization and their fan love. I went to Boston for my birthday, sat on the green monster for the first time. I had been tweeting about it because I was so excited. They replied and asked where I was sitting and surprised me with a birthday swag bag during the game! OH and we beat the Yankees that night. Red Sox Foundation posted this to their twitter - Leah Brown
Simple. "Swing and a ground ball stabbed by Foulke! He has it, he underhands to first – and the Boston Red Sox are the World Champions! For the first time in 86 years, the Red Sox have won baseball's world championship! Can you believe it?"
- Michael Grant
Easy. Quitting my job when I was 16, only 2 days into it, because I was scheduled for the game times of the 2007 world series. That was the turning point of when Sox became one of the largest priorities in my life. - Brittany Johnson
Mine happened in 2010 after being selected as the Red Sox Nation Governor of Rhode Island. Red Sox Nation Day that year was when I made lifetime friendships with governors from across the country that shared my passion for the team. That night, I had the incredible opportunity to step on the field with my fellow governors and was introduced as part of the pregame festivities. That's a memory no one will ever be able to take from me. In my role, I’ve been able to assist with having people. recognized on the field for their fundraising efforts, be selected as honorary bat kids & present the colors as part of the festivities. It's a terrific feeling to be in a position to do that for Red Sox fans in my state. - Debbie Quinlivan
I grew up in New Hampshire. My grandfather was a huge Sox fan. I followed in his footsteps. He saw them win the World Series in 1918, he was 20. He passed before they won again. Seeing them win it all in 2004 was incredible, but living in Colorado now I got to go to game 4 at Coors Field. It was amazing, I was sitting there watching the game, with my grandfather at my side. -Mark D Hale
Definitely the 2004 Varitek A-Rod brawl!-Lauri Worsley
I hope you don't mind but I have three favorite memories. The first was watching the Red Sox win the 2004 World Series and being able to share it with my mom. Her uncle passed away never having seen the Red Sox win a world series. He would say to her "I'm not going to see the Red Sox win a world series in my lifetime but maybe you will see it in your lifetime" and she had started to say that to me. My mom is the reason I LOVE the Red Sox and I'm glad we were able to see them win in 2004, 2007 and 2013. Unfortunately we will not have that experience again because I'm losing her soon.
My second favorite memory was seeing David Ortiz hit his 400th home run in Oakland while sitting next to my mom at the game. They unfortunately lost the game but sharing that experience with my mom was so incredible and a day I'll never forget.
My last favorite memory is my step-dad taking me to see my first MLB game in Oakland vs the Red Sox back in 1989. I never had had the opportunity before and he made that dream come true for me and my mom. I don't remember who won the game but I remember having one of the best days of my life. - Kristine Gibson
Oh yes, his 17 strikeouts, no walks, 1 hit performance against the eventual World Champion Yankees in 1999. I remember it well. Opened that game by hitting Chuck Knoblauch. And the only hit off Pedro that game was a HR by current Red Sox hitting coach, Chili Davis.” (Pedro Martinez) - Michael Grant
My greatest Red Sox memory has to be being in the stands at Game 6 of the 2013 ALCS (the Victorino grand slam and clinching the pennant) incredible game and atmosphere Fenway was rocking !!! - Joe Lema
My favorite memories were seeing Ted and Yaz their last bat at Fenway. It was history And I was lucky to see them both play - Ann Nolan
Normally I would always say anything with "favorite" and "Red Sox" would also include "Dustin Pedroia!" He is just incredible to watch, especially his ability to fly when he is catching a ball! But I'd have to say that the September 15, 2016 game against the Yankees was IT for me! We were three rows back behind home plate. Ready for a great game. And it was quickly obvious that the Sox were having a hard time getting started. We had become reconciled that it was not going to be a W for us and just decided to enjoy the sights and sounds of Fenway. Then Papi came to bat and got things started!! The crack of Sox bats kept coming and then Hanley hit his three run home run!!! I can hear Dirty Water right now! Just an amazing game!!!!! One of Papi's last games, and just a great night! - Cindy Mitchell DeKeyrel
2007 Mother's Day miracle game against the Orioles. First Red Sox game I ever went to. Mom was always a huge Sox fan who never lost faith in 04. Down 5-0 in the bottom of the 9th I surely lost faith but they ended up rallying with 1 out in the 9th. We won 6-5 and kids and their mothers got to run around the diamond. After that game I never gave up on the Sox again - Brent Taft
My greatest memory is being enlisted USAF and getting the opportunity to carry the flag as it dropped off the green monster and carry it into the bellows of Fenway Park while the Boston Pops played the anthem. Incredible feeling stepping on such hallowed ground where legends were born and World Series Championships were won. - Jeremy M Meier
Walking up that ramp and seeing the field for the first time. Harmon Killebrew and the Twins were taking batting practice and it was 1967 - Joseph A. Cassidy
After waiting thru several rainout/postponements, sitting in $6.00 bleacher seats when Fisk hit the homer in Game 6 of 75 WS! Still have my ticket stub. - Kathie Palleschi Leonard
No hitter by Jon Lester. - Ann Carr Standley
Ground out to Foulk for the 3rd out, 9th inning, game 4 against the Cards. First World Series win in 86 years. - David Watt
Ted at pre-game ceremonies prior to 1999 All Star game at Fenway. Will never forget the looks of those players as they admired the greatest hitter who ever lived. - Simon Grondin
Oh Shawn! I'm sure these are just the top of the iceberg! I've got ten more myself! Like "Nick Swisher! Where'd you get those pants! Nordstrom?" Said a drunken Sox fan. Never have figured that one out!- Cindy Mitchell DeKeyrel
