BOSTON (AP) — It took more than a century for these clubs to finally meet again in the Fall Classic.They had plenty of stars http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-mel-ott-jersey , especially during baseball’s Golden Era — Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson and The Duke of Flatbush, among them.But a World Series between the Red Sox and Dodgers just wasn’t part of the program.Or was it?Because a lucky few still have a souvenir of their greatest near-miss: a copy of the “official program” for the 1946 World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.Of course, they didn’t play that year, it was a phantom series. The St. Louis Cardinals swept Brooklyn in a best-of-three playoff for the NL pennant, and went on to beat Boston in Game 7 for the championship.“We never met the Red Sox,” longtime Brooklyn pitcher Carl Erskine, now 91, reminisced this week. “I pitched in the World Series five different years, always against the Yankees. I never got to pitch at Fenway Park.”Even so, the Harry M. Stevens company was prepared. That was the concessionaire for the Dodgers, Yankees and Giants Hunter Pence Jersey , and it needed to be ready in case the Dodgers advanced.So it printed up the program for games in Brooklyn, just in case. Featuring a neat, overhead photo of Ebbets Field on the cover, the 40-page booklet was priced at 25 cents.Inside, the expected lineups and batting orders were listed. Eddie Stanky, Pee Wee Reese and Carl Furillo would be starting for the Dodgers, and Williams, Johnny Pesky, Dom DiMaggio for the Red Sox.Brief bios were done on the players. The write-up on Williams noted, “he’s the only .400 hitter in the past decade.”A fast recap of the season mentioned Branch Rickey, saying, “the 1946 pennant of the Dodgers marks his first triumph as president and part owner of the Brooklyn club.”There were plenty of ads http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-williams-jersey , including this one signed by the president of the Brooklyn Trust Company: “Congratulations! We join with the millions of other baseball fans in offering congratulations to the Brooklyn Dodgers upon their winning the National League pennant.”What happened to most of those programs, no telling. But some show up for sale on the internet for several hundred dollars.Years later, the clubs came close a couple times.The Red Sox next went to the World Series in 1967, a season after the Los Angeles Dodgers made it. Boston was back in ’75, a year after the Dodgers.Not until Tuesday night at Fenway will they square off for real in October, for the first time since Babe Ruth and the Red Sox beat Brooklyn in 1916.Erskine said he’d be watching this week from his home in Anderson, Indiana, cheering for his old club.He signed with the Dodgers in 1946 at age 19 and played that season in the Class B Three-I League, which had teams in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa.Erskine recalled rooting for Brooklyn in the NL pennant playoff — the Dodgers lost 4-2 at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis, then fell 8-4 at home. The World Series began three days later at the Cardinals’ field.The next year, big league baseball changed forever when Jackie Robinson joined the Dodgers and broke the color barrier. He played that fall when Brooklyn took on the Yankees.“I remember listening to that World Series on the radio. We didn’t have television back home Bruce Bochy Jersey ,” Erskine said. “I couldn’t have imagined I’d be playing with Jackie in the majors the next year.”Erskine indeed made his debut in 1948. In 1953, he set a World Series record with 14 strikeouts in a game, fanning Mickey Mantle all four times he came to the plate in a 3-2 win at Ebbets Field.Erskine saw a lot of the Yankees over the next several years. But he never ran across the Red Sox in a game that counted.“They had good clubs in those days, but the Yankees were dominant,” Erskine said.“It’s funny, the Red Sox had wanted to sign me,” he said, laughing. “Who knows, if I had signed with them, maybe there would have been a Red Sox-Dodgers World Series.” NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton joined the 300-home run club Thursday night, connecting for a two-run drive in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers.Stanton ended a 10-game homerless drought and became the 147th player to reach the mark, 11 of them active. He did it in 1 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-willie-mays-jersey ,119 games, making him the fifth-fastest to hit the milestone behind Ralph Kiner, Ryan Howard, Juan Gonzalez and Alex Rodriguez.At 28, Stanton was the ninth-youngest player to hit 300. He hit his 33rd homer for New York. He led the majors with 59 last year and was the NL MVP before Miami traded him to the Yankees.Stanton went the opposite way for a drive into the right field seats on a 3-1 pitch from left-hander Francisco Liriano.Stanton watched the path of the ball for a couple seconds before flipping his bat aside with a small smile on his face. After rounding the bases and receiving a warm ovation from his teammates, he emerged from the dugout and doffed his helmet to the fans offering a standing ovation.The home run continued a gradual feeling-out process between the fans and Stanton, whose slumps have made him the occasional target for boos during his first season with the Yankees. He’s had three dry spells of 10 or more games without a home run this year.
