Pedro Martinez emerged surprisingly from left field Sunday night and threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Boston Red Sox prior to their game against the New York Yankees, highlighting a typically grand scale production on opening night in Beantown.

Martinez, of course, was the best pitcher of his generation and perhaps the pitcher to string together the best four or five-year span in Red Sox history.

But his appearance Sunday was a surprise. And a nice one, at that.

The moment was a little drawn out – Martinez seemed to take 10 minutes to walk from the short porch in left to the pitcher’s mound – and the whole event was typical of the current Boston Red Sox management, toeing the line between touching ceremony and cheesy over-production.

But Martinez still brought smiles to the 38,000 or so in the Fenway stands, and he was genuinely touched by the ovation he received. His appearance was a fine touch indeed, bringing back some of the magic from the 2004 season that turned the franchise’s history around forever.

Nomar retired as a member of the Red Sox earlier this spring. And Sunday Pedro took the field in a Sox uniform one final time. As a fan of the Beantown club, it’s the kind of karma you want kicking off a much-anticipated season.

October 25th

10 + 25 +2+0+0+9 = 46 = his personal year (from October 25th, 2009 to October 24th, 2010) = The past.  Happy memories.  Nostalgia…Punctual.  Waiting.  History. 

46 year + 3 (March) = 49 = his personal month (from March 25th, 2010 to April 24th, 2010)

49 month + 4 (4th of the month on Sunday April 4th, 2010) = 53 = his personal day

—————————————————————————————–

October 25th, 1971

10 + 25 +1+9+7+1 = 53 = his life lesson = what he is here to learn

When his number (53 (10 + 25 +1+9+7+1 = 53)) comes up, that’s when he gets to live/experience what he is here to live/experience.  So this was HIS day!!!

Neil Diamond

Apr 5, 2010 12:06:00 AM

The nightly rendition of “Sweet Caroline” following the seventh inning was just a little bit sweeter on opening night at Fenway Park.

Singer/songwriter Neil Diamond made a surprise appearance during the Red Sox’ season opener against the Yankees on Sunday night, belting out his hit “Sweet Caroline” as the Fenway faithful sang along.

Wearing a dark sports jacket with the message “Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn” written on the back, the 69-year-old Brooklyn native connected with the fans who regularly use his song as a late-inning rallying cry.

How’d Diamond’s performance go?

In short: “So good. So good. So good.”

Steven Tyler gave an amazing performance of God Bless America tonight at the MLB season opening game of the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. The opening day brought in some great pipes from Aerosmith, but the fans say that it may have not helped the game.

The beginning of National Baseball League opening days brings out many celebrities belting out the national anthem as well as songs during the 7th inning stretch. Part of America’s tradition of watching baseball, there isn’t anything less exciting than a perfect hot dog and listening to the music sung on the field.
