    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.

    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.

    2002 Red Sox Schedule Magnet
    2002 Red Sox Schedule Magnet

    The Red Sox finished 2nd in the American League East, again, with a record of 93 wins and 69 losses. Pedro Martinez became the first player to win 20 games in one season but pitch less than 200 innings.

    Fenway Park underwent some changes during the 2002 season.  The 600 Club, which were stadium club seats enclosed in glass on the roof behind home plate, was renamed to the “.406 Club” (in honor of Ted Williams‘ batting average in 1941).

    2001 Red Sox Schedule Magnet

     Again, the Red Sox finished second in the American League East, with a record of 82 wins and 79 losses. It was the year that Manny Ramirez made his Red Sox debut, and the year Derek Lowe moved from relief pitcher to starting rotation, eventually posting an ERA under 2.00.  During a September game against the Yankees, Carl Everett prevented Mike Mussina from pitching a perfect game. Despite the effort by Everett, the Yankees still won the game, with a final score of 1-0.

    2000 Red Sox Magnet Schedule

     

    Just like in 1999, the Red Sox finished second in the American League East with a record of 85 wins and 77 losses. It was the year Trot Nixion broke a 0-0 tie in the ninth inning against the Yankees. He crushed a 92-mile-per-hour pitch by Roger Clemens (former Red Sox player in 1996) into the stands of right field in Yankee Stadium.

    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.

  • The 2013 Red Sox Calendar Magnets have been shipped to our locations and will be available to the public during St. Patrick’s Day weekend!

     

    Sullivan Tire has been producing Red Sox schedules for our customers since the 1980s.   “The original paper schedules were practically as big as the front page of the Boston Globe,” recalls Paul Sullivan.  Now, the magnet schedules are much smaller, and fit perfectly on any Sox fan’s refrigerator.

    1999 was the first year of magnetic Red Sox Schedule, and in 2002, the magnet was produced in Spanish as well.  In 2004, an English, Spanish and Portuguese version of the magnet was created. It was a historic year for the Red Sox, who broke an 86 year curse to win the World Series, and Sullivan Tire celebrated the event by producing a limited edition World Series Champs magnet as well.  Sullivan Tire Co.’s 50th Anniversary was commemorated on the 2005 magnet, and 2009 was the first year the magnet featured Red Sox 2nd baseman and Sullivan Tire spokesman, Dustin Pedroia.

     

    This year, the magnet shows some very young baseball enthusiasts on the field at jetBlue at Fenway South in Fort Meyers, FL and includes the spring training schedule as well.
