A New England native son, Bob Toski, the man with the diminutive stature, has crafted a giant’s legacy in the annals of golf. An accomplished multi-win champion on the PGA Tour in the early 1950’s, Toski, born in Haydenville, MA, and educated at the local Northampton CC, was the Tour’s leading money winner in 1954 and won six tournaments between the Augusts of 1953-54.
It’s Millar time! We were a nation of “idiots” in the fall of 2004, and we couldn’t have been happier! Our commander-in-chief was Kevin Millar, outspoken and resolute first baseman. Together—Red Sox team, Millar, and fans—we were the sorcerers who finally dispelled the 86-year-old “Curse of the Bambino.” A season of magic! A season of redemption! Raised in LA and after a baseball scholarship at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX, Millar played 12 years in the Major Leagues—1998-2009—with the Marlins, Sox, Orioles, and Blue Jays.
