Box Score from the past (04.17.64)

April 17, 1964 was the home opener that year. Tony Conigliaro was stepping up to the plate for the 1st time in Fenway Park. Batting seventh in the order and facing Joe Horlen of the White Sox, he sent at his first pitch over the Green Monster in left field, and even over the net that hung above the Wall. The ball reportedly landed in New Hampshire, and a Red Sox star was born.
