POST-GAZE'i-rE, JULY 14, 2017 PAGE 11 EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani Gene Conle9, 86, Red Sox Pitcher During Drought Years In the late '50s right up to the 1967 Impossible Dream Year, the Red Sox played bad baseball and few showed up at their games. Tickets were real cheap, but never cheap enough to watch the team end- lessly lose. But I remember going to games just to see Dick Radatz walk in from the pen or to watch all those great players on the other teams. Gene Conley was a two-sport athlete playing both baseball and basketball in the '50s and '60s, going back and forth with either the Braves or Red Sox and the Boston Celtics he won cham- pionships with both the Milwau- kee Braves and the Celtics. Recently, Conley passed Gene Conley was a two-sport and basketball. away at 86, and was fondly remembered by this baseball fan. When he left the Braves for the Sox, he became a standout pitcher from 1961 to 1963. Conley playing for the Braves in 1954, finishing third for NL MASSACHUSETrS PORT AUTHORITY NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS Sealed General Bids for MPA Contract No. L1018-C3, HVAC EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENT, TERMINAL B FAN ROOMS 1 & 2, LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, EAST BOSTON, 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 02128-2909, until 11:00 A.M. local time on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2017, immediately after which, in a designated room, the bids will be opened and read publicly.

GLYNN CEO & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 7/14/2017 athlete playing both baseball Rookie of the Year honors, and making the All-Star game three times. He helped the Braves win the World Series in 1957, and won Comeback Player of the Year in 1959. With the Red Sox, he won 29 games in 72 starts from 1961 to '63. In 1962, he led the team with 241.2 innings and tied for the lead in wins as he went 15-4 with a 3.95 ERA. He was part of a great starting rota- tion with Billy Mombouquette and Earl Wilson. All three were great starters with, unfortu- nately, a horrible hitting team behind them. Getting back to Conley, don't forget he won three rifles with the Celtics in the late '50s, too. Also, do you remember the time that both Conley and Pump- sic Green went AWOL from the team without even telling anyone what they were up to? When they returned and were asked where they were, both of them being Jewish, told the manager they went to Israel to visit the Holy Land. Try doing that today without getting a big free. Of course, if there was Facebook back then, you could have followed their adventure in real time. Ten Runs Before the First Out? On June 22, 2003, the Bos- ton Red Sox set a Major League record by scoring 10 runs before the first out of the game. The 50-minute, 91-pitch first inning came during a 25-8 vic- tory over the Marlins. Red Sox, Yankees Still One, Two Now the All-Star game is history and we're back for the second half. The Yankees had been taking a beating the end of the first hal" and fell back behind the Soxby 3-1/2 games. Now they wiUbe facing us next. It's time to Imsh them further behind the dght ball. So far, Boston is 14 against the Bronx Bombers and we have been outscored 27-7. Now is the time tc beat the Yankees and add to our lead and their misery! Get Wells Go Out to Fran~ona The 58-year-old Indians man- ager had been admitted to Cleveland Clinic for tests after being hospitalized twice in June due to lightheadedness and a rapid heart rate. Francona underwent a cardiac ablation procedure on Thursday at the Clinic and withdrew as AL All- Star manager on advice from the Indians and his doctors. Indians' bench coach, Brad Mills, will step in to manage the American League in this week's All-Star game in Miami. Meanwhile, let's keep Tito in our prayers. Remember Bobby Ojeda? The Empire City Casino hon- ored Bobby Ojeda on Sunday, July 164. The Krst 100 people in line got a photo with him. New York Mets fans remem- ber Ojeda well for his years as a starter with the Mets, but Red Sox Nation also remem- bers him as one of our young pitchers back in the day. He also was a pretty good pitching coach for us, too. Bartolo Going to Twins Not Mets Lots of folks in New York thought that Bartolo Colon might be returning to the NY Mets, but that wasn't to be. He was released by the Braves and signed to a minor league deal with the Twins, who are looking to make a playoff spot this season. In 13 starts this season for the Braves, Colon had an 8.14 ERA. Way up there in OUCH LAND! He has given up 11 homers and walked 20 over 63 innings. The Braves are still responsible for the rest of his $12.5 million current salary. The Twins will pay him the pro- rated Major League minimum. The Mets probably could have used him in the pen since the Mets bullpen has the sec- ond worst ERA in all of baseball at 5.04. When Colon was with the Mets for three seasons, he went 44-34 with a 3.90 ERA. Personally, I think Colon has gone way past his prime time, but the Twins are probably hoping he can help them make the playoffs. His long-term use to them seems quite limited Joltin' Judge Passes Joltin' Joe HR Record On Friday, July 64, The Yan- kee Clipper was eclipsed by Aaron Judge's super season to date. When the 25-year- old slugger set the Yankee single season record with his 304 home .run, he passed Joe DiMaggio who hit 29 home runs in 1936. Judge is only the third Yankee to hit at least 30 homers before the All-Star game. The other two players were Roger Marls with 33 in 1961, and Alex Rodriguez with 30 in 2007. Judge needed only 82 games to hit 30.
