'67 Star Gentleman Jim Lonborg Talks to Haze at the Red Sox Hall of Fame Dinner Last Night

  • "We just ran out of gas at the end..." -- Bruce Hurst on the '86 team
  • "When I saw Geronimo turn his back as I was rounding second, I said 'that ball's getting out of here' and I look at Pete Rose and he's yelling at me 'yeah, this is World Series baseball baby.'" -- Bernie Carbo on the Second Greatest Home Run Ever Hit in Major League Baseball (after Dave Henderson's game saver in Anaheim in '86)
  • "Johnny (to a teary-eyed Pesky) would hit me 175 ground balls a day... he was there for me every day... I'd come up the steps and there he was waiting, ready to go... and if I made an error, it was 25 more ground balls." -- Wade (new hair looked just OK) Boggs
  • "You (Hazel Mae) look pretty good to me! ...then (after Schilling's mistaken kiss on the lips) D-Lowe came up to me, he calls me a peckerhead..." -- Mr. Red Sox Johnny Pesky
  • "When I came off that mound at Fenway, I got a standing ovation...and I thought 'that's what I'm talkin' about.'" -- Mr. Emotional Dennis Eckersley
  • "I'm doin' alright." -- Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd
