A group calling itself the "Fans of Sam Horn" have launched a website to help Sam in his bid to become the ceremonial president of the team-sponsored fan group. The site includes video endorsements from former Red Sox players Dwight Evans, Rick Miller, Carlton Fisk, and current players including David Ortiz, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek. Horn placed an ad in today's USA Today Money section under the Franchising Today banner, asking Red Sox fans to vote for him for President of Red Sox Nation. According to the website, Sam is known for "his famous cult following Sons of Sam Horn."

Horn also posted the following candidate statement:

Student- Player- Businessman- Analyst-Fan-through each phase of my life there has always been one common thread - the game of baseball. From the age of 7, when I held my first bat, to the present day, everything I have done has been centered on my lifelong love of baseball. But let's face it - Red Sox baseball is in a league of its own. And there is no group with greater passion than Red Sox fans.

Sure, I've been blessed to play for the Red Sox and work as their analyst and ambassador, but what I love best is just being a Red Sox fan. From the bleachers to the boxes, the Green Monster seats to the grandstands, whether it is Fenway or another ballpark around the country, I sit alongside fans from all walks of life. But we all have one thing in common - a passion for Red Sox baseball.

That's why I'm running for President of Red Sox Nation. When elected I will keep doing what I love - go to baseball games, teach skills to young people, bring the game to people in disadvantaged areas, and show love to fellow fans. I will continue to engage new kinds of social networks for Red Sox nation, such as, a MySpace for sports, and unique events in Boston and around the country promoting a more personal connection between the game, its players and the fans.

There are millions of people of all ages who love to share their stories, their pictures and their experiences with the only other people who truly understand-fellow Red Sox fans. So, when elected, I'll make it my mission to expand Red Sox nation to support and promote what we all have in common - our passion for Boston Red Sox baseball.

Join my world ~ this is what drives me!
