There are so many great Father's Day gifts for the dad who loves the Boston Red Sox! To many hardcore Beantown fans of the Boston Red Sox, the team isn't just about baseball, it's a way of life. Many Bostoners have spent their lives following the team, through it's ups and downs. Through the Curse of the 80s into the big win that finally came during the 2004 World Series. So what better present could a Red Sox dad ask for on Father's Day than a Red Sox Victory Series Watch, or an autographed photo of Big Papi?
You can find these items, and plenty more, at MLB Online. But why stop there?
For a real home-run of a Father's Day gift, go to the Red Sox Nation, and check out what's being auctioned. There's Red Sox memorabilia, and then there's Red Sox memorabilia! The stuff being auctioned is much rarer, and therefore much more valuable to collectors and hardcore fans, so it will mean even more when you can watch your dad's face as he unwraps an autographed ball from Lefty Grove!
Or if he's not into collecting memorabilia, get tickets for a Red Sox game right around Father's Day, right behind the plate. For an ardent sports-fan, the best present of all might be the chance to catch that homerun ball!
Of course, if your Dad doesn't live in Boston any more, other Boston-related gifts would also do in a pinch. Pick up the Special Edition Steelbook of Martin Scorsese's Boston crime masterpiece The Departed (2004), or two tickets to go see Boston's favorite Irish band and long-time Red Sox supporters, the Dropkick Murphys! There are lots of ways to show your Red Sox pride, or just your love of the city the Sox call home.
So don't bunt out this Father's Day, swing a homer!
