The WHS annual Spring fundraiser – “Look Back” on May 5! – is two days away! You know we have Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy, who will be sharing thoughts and insights from the executive/front office perspective. That by itself will be compelling, especially considering the participation of New England Sports Museum historian Richard Johnson.
What is the perfect complement to these two points of view? We’re thinking a Boston sports personality who is a baseball expert, someone who is not afraid to share his opinions and who can talk the national pastime with the best of them.
You may Tony as a sportswriter, author and contributor for the Boston Globe. More likely, you have tuned in to his immensely popular sports talk radio show on WBZ-FM, which he co-hosts with former Boston Herald columnist (and Wellesley resident!) Michael Felger.
Tony grew up in Waltham, graduated from Tufts, and lives in Sudbury. Between the Globe, the Herald, and WBZ, he has covered the Red Sox for nearly 30 years. He has published several baseball books, and was the Massachusetts Winner of the 2000 and 2008 National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Sportswriter of the Year award.
Safe to say: Tony knows baseball…and he has some opinions!
We are so excited to hear Tony’s take, and to benefit from his perspective alongside Sam and Richard.
See you Friday, Tony!
