Fenway Memory

In Fenway blackout, a calming presence

In what could have been a scary power outage in 1991, the genial and entertaining Sherm Feller kept the peace.

When you think of great Fenway Park memories, you always think of a particular game, or play, or moment — such as Carlton Fisk waving his home run fair in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series or Roger Clemens’s 20-strikeout game vs. Seattle or Rico Petrocelli catching the final out of the final regular-season game of 1967.

All of those are great events that tie into Fenway.
