This Day in Red Sox History – March 3rd

In 1945 Sam Lacy of Baltimore’s Afro-American wrote GM Eddie Collins explaining a way to facilitate the integration of Negro players in major league baseball. The Red Sox had a history-making decision to make, but failed in the opportunity to sign Jackie Robinson. In 1911, rainfall that averaged nearly six months total rain wiped out most of the Red Sox games in a ten day span. (Day by Day with the Boston Red Sox, by Bill Nowlin)
