THE BEST SEASON IN BOSTON'S BASEBALL HISTORY

DIZZY DEAN

BOSTON RED SOX ...
THE CURSE OF THE BAMBINO, PART 3
A
SUBWAY SERIES DISAPPEARS ...

June 26, 1948 ... The Red Sox and Browns were rained out after a 1/2 hour delay at Sportsman's Park.  It was the third rainout on the current road trip.  The rains came suddenly after clear blue skies were predominate for most of the morning.

Dizzy Dean, talking before the game, said he liked the Sox chances because of their powerful bats. But in the last 15 games, even though the Sox had won 11, the starting pitcher was knocked out of the box 11 times.
