  • 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.

    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.
