A tip of the hat to Tom's Massachusetts roots on the day after the Red Sox won their first World Series at Fenway Park since 1918. There's another reason this photo, taken during the 1912 series, has significance for the page. If you enlarge it, you can make out a sign that says "Thomas W. Lawson offers $250 to any batter who hits this sign. $1000 to the first who smashes The System's Slate." Tom was named for his maternal grandfather.
