  • 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.

    1999 Magnet

     

    Before we went magnetic, the original paper schedules were practically as big as the front page of the Boston Globe. By switching to the magnet format, not only were the schedules more durable, but they fit perfectly on any Sox fan’s refrigerator.

    During the 1999 Red Sox season, we finished second in the American League East, with a record of 94 wins and 68 losses.  It was the year that Pedro Martinez won the America League Cy Young Award, and became the second pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in both leagues (he’d won his first in 1997 while he was on the Montreal Expos).  1999 was also the year that Red Sox legend Ted Williams threw out the ceremonial first pitch during the All-Star game.

    What do you think of our first magnetic Red Sox schedule? Did you own one of these when they came out? Do you still have it? Let us know in the comments!

    We love them here in Florida. As Timmy would say “tanks.”
