Red Sox trivia

You looking for Hinkey Haines? 1923 Yankees World Series champions and 1927 NY Giants football champions.

Deion Sanders did win two Super Bowl Rings and one World Series ring but even more interesting was the day he played for the Falcons in Atlanta and then had to catch a plane to Pittsburgh to play for the Braves that evening. Unfortunately, although he was in uniform and in the dugout, he did not appear in that game.
Sanders did not win the World Series with the Braves, they lost in 1992. However, Hinkey Haines is probably more valid (other than same year) than who l was looking for- Otto Graham, 1946, Cleveland Browns, AAFC, and Rochester Royals, NBL. I know better than to trust everything on Wikipedia and will refrain from commenting on the history of sports l don't follow from now on!

Jason Varitek had a pinch-hit two-run homer and Troy O'Leary added a two-run homer in a four-run seventh inning that saw three Tigers ejected during Boston's 8-7 win yesterday, its fourth straight.

"It was a day game but I was looking for the moon," Red Sox manager Jimy Williams said. "There were some strange things going on."

Like Detroit's Damion Easley getting hit by pitches three times in the game, tying a major league record. But the hit batsman that caused all the controversy didn't involve Easley.

Trailing 6-4 in the seventh, the Red Sox rallied against reliever Matt Anderson (1-1), who entered with one out and a man on first.

Varitek, the first batter he faced, homered over the bullpen in right to tie the game. After Nomar Garciaparra singled, O'Leary lofted an opposite field, wind-aided homer into the left-field screen.

Anderson then hit Mike Stanley with a 3-2 pitch on his side. As Stanley walked slowly to first, Anderson was ejected, prompting a wild argument that saw catcher Brad Ausmus and manager Larry Parrish tossed by plate umpire Chuck Meriwether.

"You can't work a count to 3-and-2 on a gu try to hit him," Ausmus said. "I think Chuck jumped the gun there. You just have to use some common sense."

Just over a week ago in Cleveland, the same umpiring crew ejected C.J. Nitkowski during a brawl-filled contest. He was later suspended for two games.

"The kid's frustrated. If he's going to throw at anybody, he's going to do it right away," Parrish said. "The way he's throwing now I don't think he could hit anybody if he wanted to."

The Red Sox were the last MLB team to switch from flannel to double knits.

Two former Red Sox were the last players to wear flannel uniforms. Who were they?
