The 1979 Annual Dinner of the Boston Chapter of the Baseball Writers Association

You notice, paging through the program, how the chapter, if not quite on the Red Sox’s bandwagon, was quite a ways from showing a hard-bitten, skeptical, cynical attitude. This was not a press corps with a combative attitude toward the Sox. For example, this drawing of Dennis Eckersley, for his choice as Pitcher of the Year, has what looks like a journalist, down at Eck’s feet, saying “Gettin’ him. . . was a great deal. . . thanks Cleveland!”:
