Legendary Red Sox Broadcaster Joe Castiglione and Former Skipper Joe Morgan to Visit Hall of Fame for Dec. 14 Voices of the Game Program
Museum Celebrates Red Sox’s World Championship with Autumn Glory Exhibit
(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – The story of the 2013 World Champion Red Sox is preserved for Cooperstown visitors through the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s new Autumn Glory exhibit.
But on Saturday, Dec. 14, fans at the Hall of Fame will get an extra inside look at Boston’s eighth Fall Classic title when two Red Sox legends visit the Museum.
Current Red Sox radio voice Joe Castiglione and former Red Sox manager Joe Morgan will be featured in a Voices of the Game event at 11 a.m. on Dec. 14 in the Museum’s Bullpen Theater. Seating is available on a first-come basis, and tickets are included with Museum admission.
Castiglione will begin his 32nd season on Red Sox radio in 2014, tying him with the late Ned Martin for the longest tenure in team history.
Morgan managed the Red Sox from 1988-91, leading Boston to American League East titles in 1988 and 1990 and finishing in the Top 4 of the AL Manager of the Year voting three times.
The Museum will debut the latest edition of the Autumn Glory exhibit on Dec. 5, documenting the Red Sox’s third Fall Classic title in 10 seasons. Following Boston’s World Series-clinching win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Oct. 30, the Museum acquired several artifacts from the Red Sox now a part of Autumn Glory, including:
- Bat used by World Series MVP David Ortiz in the postseason
- Spikes worn throughout the World Series by closer Koji Uehara
- Jacket worn in Game 6 by Red Sox Manager John Farrell
- Catcher’s helmet and mask worn by Red Sox catcher David Ross
- Glove used through the 2013 postseason by Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew
- Batting gloves used by Boston rookie Xander Bogaerts during the World Series
- Jacket worn by umpire crew chief John Hirschbeck during the World Series
- The fake beard Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk wore when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch in Game 6
- Bat and batting gloves used by Jonny Gomes in Game 4 when his three-run homer gave Boston the win
- Number “0” from Fenway Park scoreboard at end of Game 6
The 2013 World Series exhibit in Autumn Glory will be on display through the conclusion of the 2014 Major League Baseball postseason. Entrance to the Autumn Glory exhibit is included with Museum admission.
