Today in Red Sox History – March 8th

On this day in 1979, pitcher Bill Lee said that “I’ve never smoked the stuff”, referring to marijuana, although in the past he did claim that he sprinkled the stuff on his buckwheat pancakes. Long live the Spaceman! In 1920, Cuban star Armando Marsans signed a contract with the Sox, but never played another game in the majors. Boston city councilor Isadore Muchnick announced that he would file a motion in three days, prohibiting the Red Sox from playing any games on Sunday unless all players received equal treatment. This was in 1948. (Day by Day with the Boston Red Sox, by Bill Nowlin)
