BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, MAY 6, 201 1 Page15 Celebrating 46 Years Together My baseball glove and I just celebrated our 46th anniver- sary together partnering at the first base bag. I bought the mitt at Raymond's in Downtown Boston for only 85. This was the same year that Tony Conigliaro led the American League in home runs with 32 at the young age of 20 years old. That year, I was the first baseman for the St. Philip Phillies over in Lower Roxbury. Next month, I'll be taking my glove Out of the closet and playing first base in the West End Soft- ball League. My glove and I have shared a long and productive life together. Our partnership lasted much longer than Lucy and Desi's did and about twice as long as my old mar- riage. I'm not as agile as I was back at 17 years old, but I'm still not bad at 60-some- thing covering first base. If I looked foolish out there in the field I would hang up my glove, but I still do a respect- able job there on the dia- mond. At bat, I can't hit with as much power as I once did, but now I just hit with a lot of finesse and a bit of good luck. My bones ache more and LEGAL NOTICE MASSACHUSETTS PORT AUTHORITY NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS Sealed General Bids for MPA Contract No. A288-C2 FY 12-14 INTERIOR AND CURBSIDE SIGNAGE TERM CONTRACT, AVIATION AND NON-AVIATION FACILITIES BOSTON, BEDFORD, AND WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, will be received by the Massachusetts Port Authority at the Capital Programs Department Office, Suite 209S, Logan Office Center, One Harborside Drive, East Boston Massachusetts 02128, until 11:00 A.M local time on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1, 2011 immediately after which, in a designated room, the bids will be opened and read publicly.

SUBMITFED BY MICHAEL SORRENTINO OFFICER & OWNER Run dates: 4/22, 4/29, 6/5/11 by Sal Giarratani Kenny Rodgers' tune, "You gotta know when to hold them and when to fold 'em." The former first baseman for the Mets and Blue Jays said "I did everything I could" in his ca- reer. He added, "There comes a moment when you have to have the dignity and the sense to recognize that some- thing is not functioning." The two-time All-Star played 17 seasons and fin- ished with a .280 career bat- ting average with 473 home runs. His best year was 2003 when he finished second for the AL MVP when he led the league with 145 RBIs. Unfor- tunately his numbers seem to fall just short of Coopers- town stats. Atlanta's Chipper Jones Joins Good Company Here's a great 24-year-old photo that was recently found. The Atlanta Braves' slug- I can identify three of these guys. Can you name who is ger Chipper Jones homered in this photo which was taken in the Red Sex clubhouse in the ninth inning back on back in 1987? April 13, joining Edie Murray post-game time isn't as much fun as it once was to me. Last year I was injured running down the first base line when my right knee went down for the count. I only played in four games. I tried to come back before season's end. However, while my mind was willing, my body wasn't. Getting back into shape after some needed mending both to me and my glove. A-Rod Reaches Two Milestones in One Game New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez hit a grand slam in Camden Yards against the hapless Baltimore Ori- oles in a 15-3 easy win against the once potent Ori- oles of yesteryear. It was the 22"a of his career and with it he passed Manny Ramirez into first place in that stat. Also, in the same game, he had six RBIs lifting him past Carl Yastrzemski into 10th place with 1,847 career RBIs. ST, JUDE AND ST.

PawSox Unveil "Arnica Walk of Fame" at McCoy Stadium The next time you're at McCoy Stadium to see a PawSox game, you can take a trip down memory lane, thanks to the Amica PawSox Walk of Fame. More than 30 all-time PawSox players are showcased on the back wall of the stadium. The trail of oversized banners includcs: Wade Boggs, Dennis Eckers- ley, Carlton Fisk, Jimmy Rice, Jon Lester, Clay Buck- holz and Dustin Pedroia. Says Mike Taburro, presi- dent of the Pawtucket Red Sox, "Fans are sure to enjoy seeing the stars of yesterday as they make their way into McCoy Stadium to watch the stars of tomorrow," Thirty- two images of PawSox leg- ends are featured on vinyl banners ranging in size from 7 to 17 feet tall and they wel- come fans into the ballpark. Way to go PawSox! Delgado Says He's Cooked, Retires Carlos Delgado has an- nounced his retirement from baseball due to his hip injury. He tried a comeback after two years away from the game but. apparently under- stood the lyrics of that old (1,917) and Mickey Mantle (1,509) as the only switch- hitterswith at least 1,500 RBIs. Lou German, RIP Lou Gorman, the man be- hind three playoff teams in his ten years as Boston Red Sox general manager died on April 1 at MGH. He was 82 years old. He took over as GM in 1984 and was on the job until 1993. He brought the Sox to the World Series in 1986. Owner John Henry called Gorman "a legendary figure in the game of baseball" and said Gorman "was a pro- foundly decent man who al- ways had a kind word and optimist's perspective." He passed away on Opening Day for the 2011 Red Sox season. He took lots of heat for trad- ing away Jeff Bagwell to Houston for a forgettable re- liever. Bagwell went on to hit 449 homers in 15 years with the Astros. Gorman said fans never let him forget that one. However, he said he did it to get the Sox into the 1990 World Series. It was a short term decision that did backfire when the Oakland A's swept the Sox in the AL Championship series. It was a tough decision for Gorman to make and he never re- gretted it even though Bagwell turned out to be a great player. He never sec- ond-guessed that decision. He was old school nuts and bolts baseball. The idea was to build winning teams and that was always his goal right to the end.
