  • Sullivan Tire has been producing Red Sox Magnet Schedules since the 1980s. The first magnetic schedule was produced in 1999, and has been a yearly tradition for 15 years! To celebrate this milestone, and to get Red Sox Nation excited about the newest magnet, Fuel for Thought will be posting a Red Sox Magnet Schedule Retrospective, every day until St. Patrick’s Day, when the 2014 Magnet will be available in our stores.

    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.
