From Worst to First – Boston Strong – Endurance part 2

Boston Strong - We Endure
The year 2012 and 2011 were losing years for the Boston RedSox! 2011 saw the Sox lose a lead in their division and NOT making the playoffs. They lost the last game of the season.

2012 saw them losing 93 games with 69 wins which was the worst record in the American League East. It was also the 5th worst finish in all of Major League Baseball. It was not a good time for RedSox Nation! They were the laughing stock of the American League under Manager Bobby Valentine.

2013 proved to be a different outcome than 2012. The RedSox lead the American League East for most of the entire season. There was no expectation of winning this season as they had a new manager and a totally revamped team. How did they become the champion of the American League? How did they win the Pennant? How did they make it to the World Series to the chagrin of Yankees fans everywhere?

Boston Strong - We Endure 04.15.2013

They ENDURED! They embraced the motto “Boston Strong” and lived it on the field. This was out felt after the Boston Marathon Bombing on April 15th, 2013. It has been a magical season. The RedSox believed in themselves to play the game the right way. They went from worst in one season. Awesome!

It’s still remains to be seen whether the RedSox will win it all this year. But regardless of the outcome of the World Series, the Boston RedSox are already champions in my book.


Smile and remember that today is another opportunity to Play It By Ear!

  1. I love when “my team” starts winning and has a great season. I prefer football over baseball but that pride can be felt by all. Hope the take it all the way.

    1. Yes Amar. I’m hoping they could win it all. That would be really remarkable. No one gave them a chance this year based on the disappointments from 2011 and 2012.

    1. You’re So Right Betsy. All the interviews that I’ve seen on TV and heard on the sports talk radio here in Boston point to the Marathon Bombings as a galvanizing force for the RedSox. They even did a lot of stuff behind the scenes such as going to hospitals and other community things away from the camera. Just because they wanted to help and make a difference in the community. Truly a remarkable story.
