As we get ready for the calendar to flip and the crystal ball in Times Square to fall, 2019 is upon us. This past year has been a great one for Red Sox fans the world over, and I want to thank you all.

Thank you. I’m going to start simply with that. Thank you to the Red Sox for an unforgettable season. Thank you to the Red Sox Nation for making each game a blast to attend. And thank you to all of you that visit BoSox Injection each day. You can literally go ANYWHERE on the internet, and you choose to spend your time with us, and I’m grateful.

I joined this team later in the year and it was just a few short weeks after the Red Sox won the World Series. I have lived my entire life in Upstate New York but was born into a family of die-hard Red Sox fans. I’m talking generations, folks. The Red Sox were what we believed in and Fenway Park was the cathedral.

Some of my happiest and most heartbreaking moments have involved this team. Seeing the sadness on my Father’s face in 2003 as Aaron Boone sent that pitch into the stand just to see tears of joy a year later as Keith Foulke tossed that ball to Doug Mientkiewicz. What a difference a year makes.

Thank you to this team for giving my family something to believe in again during one of the hardest periods of our lives as we suffered the loss of my Mother at Christmas time 2017. This team was beyond amazing to watch this year and my family and I needed it. Not to sound too preachy but seeing the Sox raise that trophy in October was like having her here with us again.

So being a fan of this team and city my entire life, this is a dream come true. I make my way to Boston every summer to visit and enjoy the city I love. At first, it was with family and now my wife and I continue that tradition. Getting text messages two summers ago for being on TV during a game every time a fly ball was hit to center field is a fun memory of mine with the Red Sox.

I get to wake up every day and write about the Boston Red Sox. Wow. I smile every time that thought comes to my mind. And not only do I get to cover the team, but I also get to share my thoughts and opinions with all of you. And thanks to social media, we get to have discussions and spitball opinions back and forth. We may not always agree, but we always listen.

I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend my time than writing for all of the BoSox Injection Faithful and about this team. How could this not be fun? WE JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES!! We have gotten to see FOUR World Series trophies come to Fenway in 15 years. That’s freakin’ amazing!

When I was younger I never truly knew what I wanted to do with my life, and Lord knows I’ve tried all sorts of jobs. But this, this is what I was looking for. Getting to reach and communicate and converse with such a wide variety of people all over the world, that’s just damn awesome.

I just want to say thank you once again. Thank you for reading anything I’ve written, whether you loved or hated it, thank you. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to read the nonsense I wrote. This team will forever be in my heart, good or bad, win or lose. I will never waiver from my love for the Boston Red Sox and I don’t think any of you would either. Thank you for reading all of the wonderful pieces this amazing team at BoSox Injection creat each day.

I couldn’t ask for a better team to be in the trenches with each and every day. Much like myself they’re all passionate and die-hard Red Sox fans. The ideas and love I see everyday from the squad at BoSox Injection is what motivates me to work harder. Thank you to all of you that write for BoSox Injection, you make this who damn thing work. Wiithout your words, I wouldn’t be here.

End of 2018 BoSox Injection Roundtable. dark. Next

This, much like I said in the open, is short and sweet. 2018 was a hell of a year not only for the Red Sox but for BoSox Injection and myself, and none of us could do it without you. Thank you for being such great and passionate fans. Thank you for reading everything we post each day. Thank you for making your voice heard in the comments and social media. We couldn’t be where we’re at or who we are without you wonderful fans. Thank you.
