Wednesday was about as good as it gets around here. No clouds, a soothing sun, temperatures in the low 70s with low humidity. I had absolutely no intention of going into the office when Boston felt like San Diego, and then I got the perfect excuse not to go into the office in the form of somebody from San Diego.
His name is George Mitrovich and his is a bicoastal life, living in San Diego, dreaming in Boston. He runs something called the Great Fenway Park Writers Series. George told me he had lined up a guy from Brookline named Larry Ruttman who has written a book called “American Jews & America’s Game,” and that Ruttman and the inimitable Dr. Charles Steinberg were going to talk about Jews and baseball at Fenway Park.
