Congratulations to My Childhood Hero

jim-riceJim Rice, an outfielder for the Boston Red Sox, was finally voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today.

I was in high school in the mid to late 70’s when Jim Rice was playing for the Red Sox and he was by far my favorite baseball player of that era. He retired almost 20 years ago and it took him 15 years to make it into the Hall of Fame. This year was his last eligible year to be voted in by the writers.

I got married in 1982 and my wife knew I was a Red Sox and Jim Rice fan and the very first dog that we got during our first year of marriage she named Boston for me.

This has nothing to do with farming, but just wanted to say congratulations to a childhood hero of mine.
