    2013 Red Sox Magnet

    2013 Red Sox Magnet

    This was the first year we featured jetBlue Park at Fenway South on our Red Sox magnet. The photo of young baseball players was taken in February while we filmed our commercial spots with Dustin Pedroia.

    We have been filming our commercials with Dustin during spring training for years, and have invited Ablevision along for the ride as well.

     Mr. Sullivan began offering this trip to our crewmembers in 2010, in which 3 of them interviewed Red Sox Second Baseman Dustin Pedroia, who is as nice as he is talented.  Since then, the folks at Sullivan Tire, year after year, have given crewmembers of Ablevision the trip of a lifetime.

    You can read more about Ablevision’s trip to Spring Training on our blog (click here!).

    2012 Red Sox Magnet

    2012 Red Sox Magnet

    During 2012, Fenway Park celebrated it’s 100th birthday. A year of events were held to commemorate the historic event, from Frozen Fenway hockey games in January, a free Open House in April, and a special birthday celebration on April 20th, 2012. The Sox played the Yankees, the same team they played back on April 20, 1912, and both teams wore throwback jerseys.

    It was also the year we held our “Every Hit Helps” fundraiser to benefit the Jimmy Fund. From the Press Release:

    Beginning Monday, July 16th and running until Friday, August 10th, Sullivan Tire will donate $500 to the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Telethon for every hit Dustin Pedroia gets!  Sullivan Tire will increase that amount to $1,000 for each home run hit by Pedroia.

    Sullivan Tire was able to donate $20,000 to the Jimmy Fund through the Every Hit Helps event.

    We also included a consumer sweepstakes where Sox fans could guess how many total hits they thought Dustin would get during the aforementioned timeline. The grand prize winner won six tickets to a Luxury Suite at Fenway, and the runner up prizes were a $500 Sullivan Tire gift card, a $200 American Express gift card, and a Dustin Pedroia signed baseball bat.

    2011 Red Sox Magnet

    2011 Red Sox Magnet

    2011 was the end of Fenway park’s 10 year renovation and expansion program. Throughout the project, $285 million was spent on improvements to the park. It was the Red Sox’s 111th season, and despite striving for the World Series that year, the Sox ended up imploding in September and failed to make the playoffs.

    During the season, we launched “The Ultimate Baseball Showdown” between Dustin Pedroia and Jon Lester. We gave Red Sox fans the opportunity to watch, guess and enter for a chance to win the chance to take some swings against Lester or pitch against Pedroia on the field at Fenway Park!

    To support the Showdown, we also launched a newly redesigned website.  We updated SullivanTire.com with our popular chat support feature, tire prices and price comparison information, and promotional info! It was the first year Sullivan Tire worked with Lester, while it was our fourth with Pedroia.

    2010 Red Sox Magnet

    2010 Red Sox Magnet

    Before the 2010 season, the left field lower seating bowl of Fenway Park was waterproofed and the seats were replaced.This was done in two phases to allow for the hosting of the NHL Winter Classic. Additionally, before the start of the season, former World Series MVP Josh Beckett signed a four year contract with the Red Sox.

    For the second year in a row, Jon Lester lead the Sox in strikeouts, with a total of 225 for the season (his record from the 2009 season as well). The Red Sox finished third in the American League East, with a record of 89 wins and 73 losses.

    2009 Red Sox Magnet

    2009 Red Sox Magnet

     

    The 2009 Red Sox Magnet was the first one to feature Dustin Pedroia, as opposed to Fenway park.  Fenway Park celebrated it’s 500th consecutive Red Sox sellout on June 17th, 2009. The Red Sox had the second best record at the All Star break, and Jim Rice‘s number 14 was retired that year.

    In terms of the season, the Sox got off to slow start, but then won 11 straight games starting on April 15. It was the longest winning streak since the 2006 season! Jacoby Ellsbury stole home base during the April 26th game against the Yankees, capping off a three day sweep. Jon Lester made 225 strikeouts during the 2009 season, which would be his career high.

    2008 Red Sox Magnet

    2008 Red Sox Magnet

    In 2008, the Red Sox season began in Japan, as part of the Major League Baseball Japan Series. The Sox played against the Oakland Athletics in the two day series, each team winning one of the two games, resulting in a tie.

    Jacoby Ellsbury stole 50 bases throughout the season (a total of 50), and Dustin Pedroia lead the team with the highest average of the season. He was named MVP, and was a recipient of the Rawlings Golden Glove award. It was Pedroia and Sullivan Tire’s second year working together as well.

    Kevin Youkilis hit 29 home runs, the most out of any Sox player, including David Ortiz who hit a total of 23 throughout the season. Jon Lester threw a no hitter against the Kansas City Royals on May 19th. Boston attracted over 3,000,000 fans to Fenway Park during the season.

    2007 Red Sox Magnet

    2007 Red Sox Magnet

    What a rebound! After a disappointing season in 2006, the Red Sox ended up winning the World Series Championship in 2007! The season had a great start, with David Ortiz blasting 7 home runs during the month of April. During the April 11th game against the Seattle Mariners, J. D. Drew broke Felix Hernandez‘s no hitter during the 8th inning. Daisuke Matsuzaka started the season off 1 – 2, but ended up winning his next five starts, ending with a record of 6-2. Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek made history by hitting four consecutive home runs against the Yankees during the April 22nd game. Dustin Pedroia was named Rookie of the Year.

    After posting the best record in the league, the Sox advanced to the World Series, where they swept the Colorado Rockies and Mike Lowell was awarded MVP.

    Just like in 2004, we produced a second magnet to commemorate the Championship win.

    2006 Red Sox Magnet

    2006 Red Sox Magnet

    The Sox finished 11 games behind the Yankees in the American League East in 2006.

    While part of the blame for the Red Sox demise could be the 5 game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees from August 18 – 21, the team had a poor record the entire month of August (going just 9-21) and September (13-14). Also, they suffered extensive injuries to Jason VaritekManny RamirezJonathan PapelbonJon Lester, and Keith Foulke.

    On September 27, 2006, the Red Sox organization officially dedicated the right field foul pole  at Fenway park as Pesky’s Pole with a commemorative plaque placed at its base. The pole is named after Johnny Pesky, who played for the Red Sox from 1942 – 1952, except for the years during World War II. The Pole was dedicated on Pesky’s 87th birthday.

    2005 Red Sox Magnet

    2005 Red Sox Magnet

     

    In 2005, after breaking the curse, the Red Sox tied with the New York Yankees for the American East League.

    Because the Yankees won the head-to-head season series, they won the tie-breaker for the American League East division title, and the Red Sox, with the best record of a non-division winner, were designated as winners of the American League Wild Card.

    The Red Sox signed Josías Manzanillo, John Olerud, Jacoby Ellsbury, Clay Buchholz, and Ricky Bottalico that year.

    It was also the year that the Farrelly Brother’s baseball comedy Fever Pitch hit theaters. Starring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore, the film is a remake of a a 1997 British film, but the male lead is an obsessive Red Sox fan.

    [During] Game 4 of the 2004 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox, the finale of this film was shot. After the last play of the game in the bottom of the ninth during the Red Sox celebration, stars Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon were filmed also celebrating together on the field. A brief shot of the filming could be seen live on the Fox broadcast of the World Series. Rewrites by Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly had to be done immediately following the World Series game 7 clincher of the ALCS against the New York Yankees to include the historic 2004 Boston Red Sox post-season.
