About Bats Balls & Gloves

I remember the exact moment I became a Boston Red Sox fan. My dad woke me up to watch Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series. Sox-Yankees in New York. I was 5 years old and had basically no idea what was going on, but I knew that it was exciting. I proceeded to watch the Red Sox blow a 5-2 lead and lose in heartbreaking fashion. I was devastated, and furious with my dad for having gotten me excited in the first place. But, somehow, I was hooked. Boston, of course, won its first World Series in 86 years the very next season, and thus was born a lifelong love for the team. I decided to start this blog prior to the 2020 season not only because I love baseball and writing, but also because I believe I can provide more fair, level-headed analysis than a lot of sports blogs are capable of. Hope you enjoy the site!
