40+ year old high school Physics teacher who has grown up with the Sox since the early 80's. As a child my dad took me to Sox games in Winter Haven, FL during spring training. I met one very influential player who took the time to talk to me and who is primarily responsible for my indoctrination into the Nation........Thanks BZ
