    slow newsday prompted this thread

    After reading an article on Punxsutawney Phil's prediction of 6 more weeks of winter, the question arose in my mind, are groundhogs related to gophers.

    Thus the following question for old-time baseball followers.

    Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21 is the spot, marked by a lone red seat commemorating the longest measurable home run ever hit inside Fenway Park. Ted Williams hit the home run on June 9, 1946 against the Detroit Tigers.

    Now, for all you old-time Sox aficionados, who was the pitcher that served up this ‘gopher’ ball. (Hint: he later became a major league manager.)

    Jose, where are you????
